USian of course, but you should be able to get a nice long list that way. Or search for baby name sites in general.
Speaking from current experience, search for 'baby names'.
Some weird stats to be found by searching that site. Having Ava, Abigail and Madison in the top 10 girls' names is weird enough, but searching for my full name (Alexander), under the "similar names," I noticed that not only is the weird spelling "Alexzander" in the top 1000 (despite me never having met anyone who spelled it that way), it's about as popular as "Leonard," a perfectly normal name. I also discovered that I'm trendy now, in 11th spot, considerably higher than I've ever been in the last century.
I looked up my girlfriend's name (Justine), and discovered that it is currently less popular than "Justice."
Inspired by that, I decided to look up "Liberty." Predictably, it does not figure in the top 1000 prior to 2001 when it suddenly popped in at 755th, hit a peak in 2004 in 410th position, and is on its way out of fashion now.
I feel sorry for any of those Liberties who eventually move out of the States, though I guess you could shorten it to Libby and not tell anyone what your full name is.
Thanks for the responses - I suppose I was being a bit too vague. What I was really after was an already precompiled list of names, one for boys and another for girls.
I am working with some devices that allows a room full of children to input their names into their handsets and transmit it to the hub - I could then assign a male/female portrait to each user by just comparing the name to the list.
Granted, it won't be perfect but it should be fine the majority of the time.
So far the best resource has been the "Baby Names Facts" but the full name list can't be broken down into male/female unless by hand -is there any else? The others quoted so far tend to be top 10/100 lists per country.
I know I'm being cheeky but I'm sure someone must have done this before.
I recently downloaded a top-1000 list of male and female names and another of surnames in the US for generating test data from; they come with frequency info as well.
There's a similar tool based on that data at http://www.firstnamesex.com/
