Naming a baby is probably one of the hardest and most important decisions a couple will make once they find out they're expecting. Don't you think??? According to babynamewizard.com, babynames.com, and nameberry.com, the following are the current most popular names (I only took a few from each list, and more specifically, the names that overlapped on all the websites). What do you think of these popular names? Are any of your kids named one of the below?
My oldest son's name is William, but back in 2009 when he was born, his name wasn't even close to the top of the most popular names lists! It's funny how things change in just a few years. I remember liking several of these names a few years ago, but I have to say I'm somewhat disenchanted by some of them now, but only because of their popularity! Does a name's current popularity lead you more towards choosing that name, or against choosing it???
Peter and I both tend to be drawn to old fashioned names (our kids are Clara and William), and with the upcoming babe, we're thinking along the same lines! Some of the names we've discussed have been Matilda, Norris (both of which I like, but he doesn't. boo.), Molly, Desmond, Hazel, Louisa, Bennett, and Frederick.
What are your current favorite baby names??? I'd love any suggestions to throw in the pot :)
