My first son's name is ranked 387 in 2007 and my second son has not been in the top 1000 in the last nine years.

I think mine will *always* be in the Top 50. DH chose it, he's named after someone else. I'm completely fine with a classic, non-trendy name...but half the reason why I want another baby is because I want to name one myself. DH says this isn't a good enough reason to bring someone else into the world.

DS's name is ranked #38 in 2007.
post #64 of 148
Sienna ranked 177 in 2006 (her birth year)
Carter ranked 80 in 2007 (he was born in 2008)

Unfortunately both of their names are becoming more popular every year.

ds: "Not in the top 1,000 for any year of birth for the last 9 years"

dd: #21 in 2007 (I know it's getting super-popular , but it was my g'mother's name and we wanted to honor her)

Both girls are in the top 25 and boy is not in the top 1000. And all are family names, go figure.

My kids are 31, 60, and 15 for their birth years. My own name was #1 for my birth year and several years on either side. DH's is 274 for the year he was born.

I like http://www.babynamewizard.com/ to see popularity in a visual way and across the years. Dd1's name was much more popular in the '30s, '40s, and '50s and then took a fairly steep nosedive. dd2's was 31 in the 1910s.
I like that also! DD #3's name peaked in the 1880's then went way down, and recently got popular again.

DD's first name was 271 in the year she was supposed to have been born (2007) - I guess they don't have the information for 2008 yet.
Her middle name was 351.

But her first name was DH's choice - if I'd been in charge of naming her it wouldn't have come anywhere near the top 1000!

ETA: According to the babynamewizard website Eleanor is 49 in popularity in England, where my DH is from - so it's even more popular than I'd thought... Never mind, if we have another I get to name it!

First Name: 545
Middle Name: 20
Second Middle Name (or first part of hyphenated last name?): Not on List

I think it's pretty interesting that most of our kids' names are in the 400+ range. Says something about us, huh? ::

DS1 - 507 for his first name, middle name is 6

DS2-not even on the chart, his middle name is 791
post #73 of 148

DS 1 Vincent for 2007 (not sure how to pick his birth year) it is number 110. I didn't think it was that common.

DS 2 Victor 104, again, didn't know it was that common

DSS Jacob 1 I obviously didn't name him and wouldn't have picked that name. It has been number 1 since the year he was born.

baby to be Shane 184 from 2 years ago.

At least the 3 I picked the names for, they weren't overly common or even in the top 100, but not overly used either.
post #75 of 148
DS was #41 the year he was born and is #47 last year.

DD is #579
post #76 of 148
DS's name is 120 but I have never met another yet. He is 3.5 years old
post #77 of 148
He doesn't make the 1000 cut.

I think our DDs share a name! I love that the only people I've met who've known someone with her name say something like "Oh, that was my great-aunt's name!"

Wow, I guess "Destiny" (my older daughter's name) is far more popular than "Deanna", my younger daughter's name. Crazy. I choose Destiny because I thought it might be uncommon. Funny how that works.
