What would your name be if you were born a completely different person at a different time?

It's strange to think, but our names can fall in and out of fashion, like pleats. Are you one of those people with a drab and outdated name, like Howard or Eunice? Want to find a hot new name for 2015? Well, TIME has compiled the latest data from the Social Security Administration's annual list of the most popular baby names and created a handy interactive tool to find out what your name would be if you were born today.

It works by judging the popularity of your name when you were born and measuring it against the latest list of the most popular baby names. For example, my name, Adam, was the 18th most popular name in the year of my birth. So, according to TIME's interactive tool, if I were born today, I would be named David, the 18th most popular baby name for boys currently. Not bad. David is a sturdy, Biblical name. Glad to see it's coming back.
