Help with Arrays

I have a list of names many of which repeat and I want to get a count of how many times each name appears in the list and sort it.

This seems like a perfect example of using an array but I'm struggling to figure it out.

Sample list:
	Bill
	Mary
	Bill
	John
	Jim
	Jane
	Bill
	Jim
	Jane

The popularity result should look like this:
	Bill (3)
	Jane (2)
	Jim (2)
	John (1)
	Mary (1)

How would I do this using an array?

Thanks,
Bill Vlahos
