CHICAGO (CBS) — In a continuing effort to provide the masses with predictive powers, CBS Chicago today is offering a way for individuals to determine which month somebody was born, based on their name.
Patrick? You were born in March.
Carol? Yeah, December
No, just kidding, it’s June.
This information comes from the brilliant minds at Slate, who combed through the U.S. Social Security death registry to determine when people with a certain name were born.
The name Patrick is (or was, as we are talking about people who are no longer with us) crazy popular in mid-March.
You know, when St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated.
