How is babby named?

I made a post over at Splunk about searching the SSA baby names database: http://blogs.splunk.com/2013/10/31/how-is-babby-named/

Babby name search

I got stir-crazy and made a Splunk app to explore the Social Security Administration's database of baby names, which goes all the way back to 1880!

If you want to set it up on your own instance of Splunk the app is on github: https://github.com/firebus/splunk-babbynames. Warning - there's a lot of kludge involved in getting Splunk to handle data this old.

I've also got an EC2 micro running it - drop me a line if you want access. I'm going to try to do another Splunk Babby app while I'm on leave...
