Can you ever win ? At least not with me. haha.

There's a part of me that loves unique names, but then there's another part of me that would be sad if my favorite name dropped on the list meaning it's not as liked anymore or becoming "dated".

I think I'm like that w/ girls names. I like knowing that other people like the name too, LOL!
It gets to my Dh sometimes though. People gave us a really hard time about choosing Emma and he couldn't take hearing how popular it was any more. He decided we had to stick w/ family based names (people never question those ). I'm very lucky to have an Emmeline and several Isabel/Belles on our family tree

I understand. I really use to love Emma/Emily etc but since it has been popular for so long they aren't on my list anymore. I still like them, but not as much. Although I have been happy that some of my names I like have gone down on the list because I still really like them and the dated think doesn't bother me too much, especially since my name is Jennifer (that is def a dated name)

I am kind of disappointed that Alaina keeps moving up (although I don't think it will ever go too high) but I don't think it would bother me if it dropped a lot because I love the names we've chosen :]

lol... I LOVE it when our names drop! I like a lot of names that most people DON'T like or would never use, lol. I was *thrilled* when our name for a girl dropped to the 900's, heh.

I can't win but not for the same reason...I too LOVE when my name choice isn't in the top. The reason I can't win is b/c I find a name I LOVE and immediately assume it can't be in the top, only to find out it is As many times as I look at that list you'd think I'd know and not get my hopes up

I'm happy that only a couple of our top choices are in the top 1000! I'm kind of a freak about popularity, though. Most people don't take it to the extreme that I do!
