Also it's funny how someone was bitching about Emma being popular earlier, and it's still in the top 100 here. Classic names are classic for a reason.

Quoting Lauren6310:

Really, Do you go into all the posts that are not confessions and ask them that or is it just this particular poster you have an issue with? 95% of the posts in this group are NOT confessions.
