I really like the name Eden but feel it may be just another trend. Will my daughter be one out of 5 Eden's in her class? Also are a lot of people naming boys this? What do you ladies think?



Thanks,
Dawn

The name is not my style, but I think its cute. I think a lot more people TALK about this name, than actually using it. I don't think your daughter will be one of five Eden's in her class. I don't think I've ever heard this name used on a boy, I think its 100% girl... but others could think differently. If you really like the name, I'd say go for it!!! Good luck!

I like the name. I think it's all girl and I haven't really heard a lot of people using it so I think you're safe in that regard.

Here is my theory...I think there are names that are "message board popular". These are names that you see used on different naming boards rather frequently, but that aren't used often in RL. I think the reason this happens is people see a name on a board, and they like it, and they add it to their list. So a name that is more unusual is suddenly popping up all over the place on these boards, and we worry it gets too popular. This happen with Mattea's name. I posted it when I was considering it, and had never seen it used before, and then I saw it all over the place on different boards. Not saying that I am the reason for this, but I do think a lot of people found it either from me or another person online with it on their list (b/c it's not in many baby books) and it just kind of spread around a little bit...personally I think it's great and I smile every time I see it on someones list! I worried that it would become to popular when I started seeing it, but it's not even on the top 1000 and I have yet to meet a living, breathing Mattea, so I'm not worried! I've never met an Eden either...and its number 321 on the SSA list. So needless to say, I don't think you should worry about her being one of 5 Edens in her class! I'd venture to say it's very possible she would be the only Eden in her whole school for that matter! I think that Eden is definately a "message board" popular name...and it's a gorgeous one, IMO!
Sorry for the long winded reply
