Ugg, the two names we had chosen for this baby are on the list! Jacob and Sophia! Oh well, we'll probably use them anyway! My DS is Miles because we didn't really hear the name frequently and now there are TONS of them.

None of the names on our short list are on the most popular list.

I don't worry if my kidlets' names are popular just if I know someone with the name. And even then, I don't worry too much.

I have a:
Nicolai (named for his father & grandfather)

and this baby will most likely be:

Alexander or Alexandria or Alexandra. We'll have to see.

I don't like names that are too common.

I'd use a name even if it was popular, if I really liked it.

I think a lot of the names on the lists are great, but I wouldn't use them. I'm Jennifer, and that was the most popular name the year I was born. So my sister-in-law and 2 of my closest friends share my name and I would like my kids to not have that : ) We chose Weston for my son's name, and it was a name my husband and I both loved for a boy. Whatever we have this time, it will certainly be difficult to find the right name, but I'm sure we'll pick something that will be a good fit with Weston.
