To keep myself from totally hijacking another thread, I thought I'd ask this here.

Mel said that she automatically excluded any baby names in the top 10. I had to laugh because all my kids names are very common. I checked out my kids in the years they were born.

Here's the site Popular baby names

Elizabeth - 11
Grace - 17

William - 11
Joseph - 7

Anna - 22
Katelyn - not in top 50 but Kaitlyn was 30

David - 13
Walker - not in top 50

I guess technically none of my kids first names were top ten either

Caitlyn (not spelled the same) - 32
Susanne - Not in the top 1,000 for the past 15 years.

Cara - 559
Lynne - not in the top 1,000 for the last 15 years

My first name is not on the list probably for the last 100 years.
Grace - 17 (this year)

Dh's formal first name is 165. His name is fairly common among men his age.
His middle name (which he detests and never uses) is 283.

Haley in 1996 (when she was born) was ranked 30th
Zachary in 2001 was ranked 16th
Asher in 2003 was not in the top 1000 names
Brenna in 2006 was ranked 381st
So I went with the popular names at first and then slid way off track.

I'd love to be the ideal mother but I'm too busy raising my kids.

Haley Olivia 8-17-96 ~ Zachary Tyler 4-30-01 ~ Asher Mackenzie born an angel 2-26-03 ~ Brenna Grace 5-4-06

Alexandria was #147 last year and #72 the year she was born.

William is #10, and it was #14 when he was born. The numbers make it seem really popular, yet there's only one other William in his school (about 500 kids), and we don't know any other boys (but we know lots of old men) with that name. I think it's much more popular in the southern part of the US than where we live.

Henry is #95. It was #123 when he was born.

I checked our state and William was #1 the year he was born! I do live in the south and we haven't run into tons of Williams his age. Maybe a lot of the Williams go by their middle name.
