I don't know if anyone has done any research on this, but I am trying to find a list of letter distribution in male and female given names. That is, what is the frequency of a given letter in a corpus consisting of given names? If anyone knows of such a study, or if there is an existing corpus of given names that could be sorted electronically, please let me know. TIA, Jesse Sheidlower
