IBGE releases online tool that shows how many people got their nameTo create the search service, the institute was based on the census 2010, done with 200 million Brazilians.
The IBGE (Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics) launched a tool called Brazil Names that allows users to search the popularity of their names. To create the search service, the institute was based on the census 2010, done with 200 million Brazilians.
The website, which has a database 130 thousand names, It shows how many people are registered with a particular name and also shows the list of most popular names. For men, the most common name is Jose, while for women, leadership handily goes to Maria.
Another interesting fact presented by the site's popularity by decade of birth. For example: You can notice a very clear peak records Romario name in years 1990, when the player stood out in the World Cup fourth championship campaign 1994. So you can find out when his name became popular, and when it was not so common.
You can make your search this site, but rather it is an observation: the search is usually a bit slow, then you may need to have patience to get your results. There is also another addendum: IBGE does not count accents in the names, then Antonio and Antonio are calculated in the same way, for example.
