Stone -
keeping with the times

Stone is a phenomenon of Generation X and Y. Previously, the name wasn't really on the radar of expectant parents.

Although it has never reached the top 100 list, this boys' name seems to have been in vogue for a while, which makes Stone really in tune with his generation.

In years where the graph has no value, the name Stone was given less than five times or even none at all in the entire USA.
