Plus I would expect that the Japan dip is from WWII general, and not dominated by those particular two giant bombs.

That dip is for birth year 1905 (age 10 in 1915). Not a large number of civilians dying specifically due to WWI. Not a large number of 10-yr-olds in the war. Or a bunch of 10-yr-old Swedes.

Lots of deaths from the Spanish flu in 1918, tho

a visualization of dog names in NYC
http://a816-dohbesp.nyc.gov/IndicatorPublic/dognames/

found out from here:
http://digg.com/2017/nyc-dog-name-da...m_medium=email

Quote:
Enter a name and the site will tell you how many NYC dogs share it: for instance, "Buddy" is predictably common while there's only one dog named "Arfy" in the five boroughs.

You can also just let your cursor wander over the interactive bubble cloud, where names are grouped by similarity. That's how we found gems you wouldn't ever think to search for: ultra-rare, totally "normal" dog names like "Trousers" (1 dog), "Bonez" (1 dog), "Benzo" (3 dogs), "Zomboard" (1 dog), "Ramen" (2 dogs), and "Piffington" (1 cool dog).

So take it for a spin, type in some nonsense or swear words (as we all do), and settle some weird debates. You know, like:

Prince (328 dogs) vs. Bowie (47 dogs)
Piccolo (9 dogs) vs. Goku (3 dogs)
Chocolate (56 dogs) vs. Vanilla (15 dogs)
Corona (6 dogs) vs. Budweiser (2 dogs)
Peace (2 dogs) vs. Crime (1 dog)
Cookie (328 dogs) vs. Biscuit (95 dogs)
Sherlock (35 dogs) vs. Columbo (3 dogs)
Beyonce (3 dogs) vs. Adele (3 dogs, TIE)
Bees (1 dog) vs. Beads (no dogs)
Boobie (7 dogs) vs. Booby (1 dog)
Salsa (8 dogs) vs. Guacamole (3 dogs)
Bernie (46 dogs) vs. Hillary (6 dogs)
Pee (8 dogs) vs. Poo (2 dogs)
Pizza (4 dogs) vs. Sandwich (3 dogs)
Jesus (2 dogs) vs. Satan (1 dog)
