Popularity of "Selma" over the ages

Average Number of Babies Born per Million per Year
Source: Name Koala, U.S. Social Security Administration
Note: Why do we use the metric average number of babies born per million? Because we want to normalize for population growth (or decline) over time. For example, in the 1880s, there were fewer people born than in the 2010s, but popularity is measured relative to the total population and not just as an absolute number. Otherewise, many of the names given to babies born in the 2010s would be more popular than the names in the 1880s just by sheer number of babies born!
