Where do your names rank?

Have you seen the social security site with baby name rankings? http://www.ssa.gov/oact/babynames/

Isabella is number one. :-( I didn't even have the Internet when I was pregnant with her and was given a hard time that her name was so "different" but now, ugh. Oh well, I'd planned her name from the time I was 16, she'll get over it. My twins are 60th (Cameron) and not even on the list (Caterina)

What ranks are your choices?

Mine were 21(Gabriel) and 37 (Gavin) We just finally decided on names last week after having issues with DH wanting to name one after his grandpa(Raymond Charles) and my dad saying what about my dad?(Arthur William) So the compromise we had(cause nobody liked what I picked Xavier and Xander) we decided on Gabriel Raymond and Gavin William.

I think I'll end up with a similar situation (like Isabella becoming more popular)... Juliette is ranked at 371 right now but it's on the rise and I have a feeling it's going to become more and more popular. Elia isn't even on the list.

We haven't set names yet because we don't want to get our hearts set on a name until we find out the sexes of our babes, but I do have a couple of favorites. I haven't put them out in cyber land yet, but a couple of them are moving up over the years. Ultimately I will name my kids whatever regardless of the rank, but seeing the names move up is frustrating...I thought I was unique. lol

I was a little surprised...Carson ranked 80th, and Cooper is 76th. We just knew they weren't in the top 50, but I didn't realize they were ranked so high. We don't know any other Carsons. There are a couple Coopers, but I couldn't help myself. He's the smaller of the two, and it totally fits him!
Our DS, Grady, is 313 now--531 when he was born in 2003.
