DD is 4.5 and can now write her name, herself, and knows the letters by heart. Her name Madeline. Last year, she had MAD down. We joked last year that we should have named her Ava because then she'd be set!

Dd is named Ada. When we have a son we plan to name him Cassidy. So I expect some variance!
|I think the reality is that most kids master this by age 3, and just as many do it by age 2 1/2 as do it by age 4.|
Oh, I quite strongly disagree. I really think this is a late 3/4yo skill for most kids. That was what we saw in DD's preschool for sure. I have known very few 2yos who could write their name. Some of the children in DD's K class are still working on it.
Perhaps you have a lot of smart friends with smart kids, or a lot of friends who emphasize this skill.
