A year of names
Mon, 04-11-2011 - 8:18pm
I guess because the SSA releases the popularity lists in a few weeks, I tend to think of the year as May to April, rather than January to December. Anyway, what better thing did I have to do at 3 AM when Els decided not to go back to sleep than think of names I expect to have risen when the list comes out? This made me reflect on all the babies I know born from May 2010 until yesterday. Since I have them all written out, i thought I'd share, there are some good ones in here, and a few I don't care for, and only about three or four that make me cringe.

In order of birth for the most part...if they have sibs, they are in parentheses
HaileyJane (yep all one name with a middle too, why not two middles?) (Ethan, Colby)
Ephraim (Maria, Lucia, Isaac, Gisela)
Charlie (Ella, phineas)
Elizabeth (Matthew)
Nolan (harrison, steven, benson)
Colin (Davis, Kate)
Reagan (Madison, kennedie)
Charlie (Aidan, Sam)
Dalton (Amelia, Brooklyn, charlotte)
Adaline (James, Claire, Wyatt)
Sullivan (Spencer, Samson)
Elspeth (mine)
Reid (Nora)
Tatum (Ainsley)

That made me smile how you think of the year from May-April. Hahaha...:)

Here are my thoughts on the names-

Linden-I don't hate this, because it's sort of a nature name.
