Does Popularity Affect Your Name Decision?

A little background...
DH and I found out last week that this little one is a little girl! So the name choosing has begun:)
We picked DD's name (Cadence Lea) when I was 6 weeks along. Then, during that pregnancy we also picked DS's name (Evan Tyler) in case DD was a boy. Then during our pregnancy with DS we still had Evan picked out but picked out Chloe Gail if it was a girl. Now that we know this LO is a girl DH is stuck on Chloe. So here is my silly question/dilema: I absolutely LOVE the name Chloe especially with her middle name being Gail...I think it fits nicely with our other children's names and it's just a pretty name. BUT...I also feel like it is SO popular and for some reason that bugs me a little. DH doesn't feel the same way. He thinks that if you like a name then it shouldn't matter at all what other people think/or the popularity/or so on. What do you think? Would you name your child a name even though you knew it was popular? Would that affect your decision at all? Or would you be more carefree like my DH? I don't know why this is bothering me so much...must be some hormones:):)
