I haven't seen those names on a newbie either. With my kids, I wanted their names to mean something so popularity never came into play.
My DD's name is my mother's maiden name and my ex husband's mother's name hyphonated and her middle name is my grandmothers and her dad's grandmother's first name (both the same)
My son's name is the last name of the woman who took care of me much of my childhood and his middle is my dad's name (and my step father's, my cousin's and my step brother's for that matter lol)

Monther of Riley (11), Andrew (4) and Victoria (7 months)

My middle son's name (Harry) peaked around the turn of the century.

My name peaked in the 50s. Figures. I've never really liked my name.

What about:
Donald
Gerald
Sharon
Shirley
Helen
Janet
Claudia
Carl
Sylvia
Ralph

It makes me wonder what names will NEVER come back...

It's intriguing to me that Emily is number one! It's been popular since the 1800s, with a low dip to #251 in the late 1950's. Heh.
I thought it would have faded in fashion by now... hmm... I only know of one little girl named Emily, all the rest are Emmas!

Oh, and to the pp, I know two little boys named Carl! It seemed strange when I first heard it........

I had fun posting my favorite names for future children into the NameVoyager thing. I want less common/trendy names for my children (someday).
Amos, Margaret, and Miriam are not surging in popularity.
Abijah, Hendrik, and Amity were not popular enough to show up. Adelaide, Elias, and Simeon are ones I like that are becoming more popular, even if not exactly common.

I have one wonderful husband and one wonderful little toddler boy!
