The 2012’s Most Popular Baby Names list has been announced! I always love to look at which names are popular and which names are not popular, and try to figure out why. Am I the only weirdo who does that? A favorite past time of mine (years before I was ever pregnant) was looking up names (favorites, friends, family, etc.) on the Social Security Baby Names list.
Are you favorite names popular? Is yours? Does it bother you when your favorite name becomes too popular? Jack, Madeline, and Henry have all been crossed of the list of my once-favorites because they have all become too popular. For some reason, I don’t want our kids to have popular names. I loved being the only Mallory I knew growing up, and I kind of want that for our kids too. Not that I am going for crazy names to avoid the popularity… but I lean towards names off the list of the most popular.
What about you?
