Nope.  I chose names that I liked and thought would work well in adulthood.

We crossed a few names off our list because of their popularity.

thats mostly what people do is name their children the most popular name and it goes in cycles of who is popular on tv or the movies .

I tried to pick names with my kids in mind. One has a common name, but not overly popular. I don't want them to have 50 other kids turn their head when their name is called.

I always wanted four names for a Girl, Scarlett, Mileena, Jolene or Belle. But because of Twilight, no one would get why I would have named a daughter Belle. That and my best friends wife named their daughter Isabelle.....

When I take my girls to the park and call for my oldest (Abby) I get about 5 kids that turn to me....  Wish I had thought about it more.  I have yet to come across another Chelsea tho...
