but is now popular or becoming more well known? Or did you pick names that you liked, w/out caring about whether they were super popular or not?
When picking out names for my kiddos, I tried to pick ones that weren't as popular at the time, but weren't totally off the wall either.... Now they all seem to be more popular or becoming more used...
Audrey- was a bit old fashioned nearly 15 yrs ago, but I've heard it a lot more these days...
Shane- Shawn was a lot more popular nearly 9 yrs ago, when we named our ds, & we liked it, but didn't want him to be in class w/ 5 other kids w/ the same name, so we chose Shane, not realizing that it was becoming pretty popular at the time, now I hear it used a lot
Collin- didn't seem to be used a lot nearly 5 yrs ago, but I hear it quite a bit now
Peyton- seemed different as a girl's name nearly 3 yrs ago, but am also seeming to hear it more often now
Not to say, that any of them are super popular names these days, but it just seems like they are used more... maybe it's just that I didn't pay as much attention until after I'd used those names for my kids....

I picked names that I liked, but also happened to not be very popular, but a year or two after they were born they started getting more popular. It doesn't bother me though. With this baby that I am having now, we picked a name that is already in the top three, but we really like it so we are using it anyway.
