I tried to avoid my DD's name being popular. In July last year when i picked it, i barely heard it. Now it's in the top 10.

Fail.

Her name is Aubrey Ryann.

Has this happened to anyone else?

She asked to add B's last name but it would have been too long to keep them all! I'm proud of her though its something she wanted and wasn't afraid to ask for it!

Quoting Maria_Peanut:

Aww, that sucks :(



Quoting ShireeCS:

We signed paperwork in august and it was filed probably last week. She is going from jaquelynn ella raeann s**** to jaquelynn rae s****-g*******





Quoting Maria_Peanut:

Aww when!?







Quoting ShireeCS:

I love it too! I am bummed though that we dropped some of her names but did it so she would be happy!









Quoting Maria_Peanut:

I just adore her name!!











Quoting ShireeCS:

Not with jaquelynn although we almost called her ella (one of her middle names) and that is now super popular!!

Lol, it happens. I named dd1 Lily, my nanny (great grandmother) asked me if I would and did, now I see nothing but Lily's, lol.

Dd2's name doesn't seem to be popular. Lexi Rayne (no not after the game/movie or whatever it is)

We never cared about how unique a name was, we chose their names based on meaning, so I wouldn't mind a whole lot if that happened, in fact I think it would be nice if their names were a little more popular. My sons are named Tate and Robin, Tate is the 394th most popular name and Robin isn't even in the top 1000, so that hasn't happened to us yet.

Yes. Definitely. When I named my dd Natalee, I didn't think it was popular in our town. She is like one of five Natalee's in her grade.
It bothered me at first, but not any more. I believe each child will make their name special.

I deliberately tried to give my children popular names. I have a very rare name, myself (I have only ever met one other person face to face who has the same name), and got teased for it in grammar school.
