Evidence that Batman is directly correlated to how popular the name ‘Bruce’ is

Spotted via io9: a graph of the popularity of the name ‘Bruce’ from the 1880s to today. Somewhere in the 30s, parents really dug the name and named their kids Bruce in masses, propelling the steep ascent of the name to super-popular usage. Then, usage of the name spiked in the 50s with micro rises and falls, before swiftly falling out of favor with the crowds soon after… it all sounds pretty boring until you plot the stats on a chart and see Batman on it.
