What are the hip names among the people you know?
I know about 12 people with kids named Charlie or Claire. :-P
I've actually kept a list of all the baby names my friends have chosen over the past year and a half. They are:
DH and I just had this convo about 15 minutes ago. I seem to know a lot of baby boys named August. When I was pregnant with DD1 I considered that name if she hadn't been a girl. Oddly, I know two girls named Beatrix (my other choice for her). I know like three Sebastians as well and several kids named Liam, Miles and Ezra. I would have thought those would all have been one of a kind.
I don't know if anyone remembered me considering Zella. It's not in the top 1000 baby names and is a really obscure German name. In the end I just like Stella better, trendy or not. Well YAY for that decision because in a total random coincidence like two days after she was born we got an announcement that one of our couple friends had named *their* new baby Zella.
I think we all would have been annoyed if we had chosen the SAME obscure, off the charts name. (I'd bet dollars to donuts they considered Stella too and bucked it for popularity. They are super hispters.) Everyone would be less annoyed if we had all picked Emily, know what I mean? From their perspective, you pick a rare name, you want to be the only one.
Here are some names of babies I know born recently.
Ella & Phoebe (Trent, Carter)
Claire and Jillian (Christopher, Joel, Kathleen "Kate")
Keegan (Micaela, Jaden)
Sofia (Ashton, Olivia)
Oscar "Ozzy" (Pippa, Finnegan "Finn", Desmond "Desi")
I do think I have different naming styles than most around here.
Wow you all know alot of people with kids!
I can hostly say there aren't many doubles that i know of........here are a few though-
Levi - this is a double actually and also a middle name (so I guess the most popular one for me)
Funny how different the names are from the others that have posted. It seems as though EVERYONE I know had boys in the last 2 years.
I'm shocked that the ones popular in my circles aren't on your lists, because it seems that everyone I know names their kids the same thing!
Ella (X 4),
Here are some names my friends and friends of friends have used recently:
