I don't think you can really predict how popular a name will be in your area. I have a friend who loved the name but didn't use it because it was so popular. She went with another less popular name. She said she actually wishes she went with the name she loved instead. I would honestly go with the name that I loved, not based on popularity. I would rather have a common name than a crazy unique one!

And like the lady above said about the name Liam. You can never be sure that the name wont skyrocket over night. I didn't know a single Liam a few years ago, and now I know tons! It's crazy how instantly popular names can get. The names Stella, Scarlet and Ruby were very uncommon last year, but they have been popping up everywhere around here. I wouldn't try to name your kid something just because you want to be unique. Choose it because you love it!

Thanks Kiliki for the siggie!
