I was at a baby shower for a friend of a friend (who's having her eighth baby! ) and we played a game I'd never heard of.

How to play:
- Go to Popular Baby Names
- Look up the rank of your child(ren)'s name for the year(s) they were born
- Go to your birth year and look up the same rank(s). The name in the slot would be their name.
- If a name wasn't in the top 1000 you may use their middle name. If their middle name isn't in the top 1000 you might need to tone down the creativity

Farrah wasn't in the top 1000 in 2002, so I'll use Madison.
Year - 2002
Rank - 2
1978 - Melissa

Ethan
Year - 2005
Rank - 5
1978 - James

Chase
Year - 2007
Rank - 79
1978 - Antonio

Callie
Year - 2010
Rank - 237
1978 - Annette

You don't have to share your birth year.

Oldest son:
1993: First name not in top 1000, middle name not in top 1000, nickname was #629.
In my birth year (1967): Chadwick

Youngest son:
2002: First name not in top 1000, middle name #807, nickname #803, so going by nickname, then middle name, in my birth year his name would be Raymundo Hunter

Editing to add, just for fun:

My first name was not in the top 1000 in my birth year, but is now #180 and my middle name was #13 in 1967 and #12 in 2010.

These are interesting to read. Weird that some kids names would be the same, that's pretty cool.
