Hi Limabean!


However you want to do it -- either their birth year or the most recent year available (which I think is 2007).

Wow, my kids' names, fairly popular when I was a kid, are currently dropping like rocks. DD's name is into the 400s now, after decreasing every year for the past six years. DS's name is in the 100s, so falling more slowly, but also continuously. Interesting.

One is in the top 5 and the other is in the top 50. Oddly enough, I only remember meeting 2-3 kids with DS's name in 7 years, and I've never met a child with DD's name. I typically see her name on 20-25 year olds. We knew they were both high on name lists because they are traditional names

As far as I know, there aren't any other kids with any of my kid's names.

Well, when I put in DD's actual name-- Owyn-- it's no where on the list of top 1000 names. However, Owen is #56 in boy's names. So there are many other people with the same name as her, but very few girls.

Our dd's name is in the top 10 this year, but she was supposed to be a he and all we did was feminize the boy's name we had chosen. (It was the only girl's name we could agree on
)

I didn't vote because I couldn't decided which kid's name to choose


By my specific spellings, and the year 2007:

Denae = not in the top 1,000
Nathan = 24
Jayden = 18
Lincoln = 224

so, I'm all over the place with baby naming: from 18th most popular to not even in the top 1000.

Kinda funny that Jayden is the most popular of my kids' names, I seem to recall some of my family saying, "I've never heard of that one"
