I was so surpirised when I saw Liam was number 4. Noone we know has his name, and when we tell people they always say how "different" of a name that is.

All my middle names are on there. But I gave them more common middle names if they didn't want to use their first when they grew up.

Mason is #5 which is Archer's. Damon's Aleksander is #16 and Slater's Michael after DH is #15.

Before I named Luke I checked nearly all of the popular baby names list and asked my friend who works in the hospital if it was a popular name. I knew it was well known, but as long as it wasn't in the top 20 I was fine.

I was born in the late 80's and "Ashley" was at an all-time high! My name was number one on the charts for at least 5 years! Before Ashley it was "Jennifer"! Theres always that number one name and theres always like 10 of them in your class. I dreaded when someone said Ashley...I never knew if they were talking to me. I hated having such a common name. I have lots of bad memorys from having such a common name

Luke is number 28. His legal name is Luke Daniel Turner. Its funny that number 29 is Daniel! His middle name and my husbands name.

I currently have 7 people on my friends list (out of 128) with a son named Liam! It is insane how that name literally just shot up out of nowhere last year. When I was in school, there were no Liam's. It's crazy how popular that name is now!

I asked my friends the most popular names she sees in the hospital (she works in the mommy/baby unit at a downtown hospital here in the dallas metroplex. She said she literally gets, "Sophia, Olivia, Isabella" and "Mason, Aiden and Jackson" multiple times per week!

I had the same issue when I was a kid. I was born in the late '70's (really late ... I caught the last 2 weeks LOL) and Lisa was a huge name then. At one point I was one of 4 Lisas in a class of 25 ... 3 of us with the middle name Marie. I was known as "Little Lisa" for 13 years.

James is 21 and Allison is 58. I like common names but not so popular that there will be a ton of them in a group (can't say class because I'm homeschooling ). I know being the only person that people have ever heard of with that name isn't fun either. If people have ever met another Marjorie, it's a 60+ year old lady. They don't expect it to be me

I am shocked that Logan didn't make the top 100. It seems pretty common in my area.
