Here's an amazing internet tool for that rare occasion when you are attempting a Blind Cold Read, such as over the telephone. By looking at the peak of a given name's popularity, I have had a better than 80% success rate in nailing a person's age within five years simply by entering their name. It's awesome how short and specific "name popularity cycles" are.

By the way, it's just a tool, not an entire act. It also works best with the more unusual names (although "Margaret" and "Muriel", two that I ran, I was able to hit within two years!) It's useful when you're not speaking to the subject, since voice quality will tell you a lot more about a person's age, but voice and name together make for a killer combination.

Also available in book form.
