    Not impressed at all!!In what country are these the most popular? I’ve never heard of most of them, mayb that’s why!!!

    • Let's be real, here....

      You mst be a fairly young lady. “Charlotte,” “Eleanor,” “Amelia,” “Penelope” and “Cora” are very old and traditional names (Eleanor dates back to medieval times, and Penelope even prior to that!), as are “Oliver,” “Henry,” “Silas,” and”Jasper.” You’re not one of the “Nevaeh” crowd, are you?
      As to liking them-well, just because they are old doesn’t mean I’d choose any of them. But I far prefer them to some of the made-up monstrosities people curse their children with these days. (Ivy Blue, anyone? And I have met or heard of people who have named their poor babies after fruits-Plum, Peach, and of course, the famous Apple). I’ll take any of the names on that list before naming a child of mine after a fruit!

    Well, at least “Nevaeh” didn’t make the list. Nice to see some good old-fashioned names coming back, though-that trend of giving kids unisex names, or first names that sound like surnames (McKenna, MacKenzie, etc.) has hopefully gone away for good.
    Gotta wonder about “Atticus” and “Harper,” though-has “To Kill A Mockingbird” experienced some kind of resurrection among new parents? I thought standing up to bullies had replaced reading classic American literature in most school systems in the past decade or so-I’m thrilled to bits.
