Is your name "normal" or "unique"?

And did your mom or dad have more say?

I have a "unique" name.  As in I only know one other person with the name and that is the person I was named after.  My mom had more say, and it was her friend I was named after.

Normal name. My mom named me something different than what they had picked out together.

Normal name. My parents agreed on it I assume. All of my siblings have normal names too, only one is common, the rest are uncommon, but perfectly normal names.

 How did your dad feel about her changing it up?

 Only one of my siblings has a "normal" name.  The rest are unique.  And one became a trend after my little sister was born, but none are spelled her way.

One of my siblings has a more unique name, because her name is typically a nickname for something else. It's still a perfectly normal name though. Only one has a common name, the rest are traditional, but not widely used. Although my little brother's name became a girls name at some point, that's mildly amusing to me.

Add: all of my siblings have normal names too...

Emily, Matt, Elizabeth, Alexandra, Emily (yes, again), Natalie, Reginald (kinda unique but not historically so) and Victoria.

as i'm named after my mom's paternal grandma i'll take a stab & say my mom had more say in my name.  while it's not the most common name it definitely isn't a unique name.
