I'm going to put a poll over to the right with these names. [Poll closed; see results below.] If you are a U.S. GIRL, and if you were born, say, 25-35 years ago, and one of these is YOUR first name, vote for that name. If you were born about 25-35 years ago and none of those is your first name, choose "other."
Because my goal is to get a general idea rather than an accurate statistical report, the age range is flexible: If you're 24 or 36 and you want to vote, go right ahead. Also, for the same reason, let's include alternate spellings: any "Sara"s should vote for Sarah; any "Nichole"s should vote for Nicole, etc.
