A lot of weight rides on the name you choose for your kid. And every year when the Social Security office releases the data on the most popular baby names, parents get upset. As a Michele who faced the extreme popularity of my name way back when, I'm here to tell you that if your child's name is on this list, it's going to be just fine. In fact, take pride in knowing your baby name choice won't be ridiculed.

They left one off the list: gunsequalfreedom.
How could they have missed that great name? Geez.
Actually, ConservativeStatement has a nice ring to it too.
We are such stumps and named our sons Matthew and Christopher.
I also notice that few people under the age of 50 named ‘Richard’ go by the name ‘Dick’. It’s always Rick or Rich now.
I guess Jennifer is a 70s name. What about Julie?
I once worked with a guy named Dick Kurtz, I kid you not and we kidded him a lot.
Sorry, don’t believe it. Don’t believe the stories about “Chlamydia” and “Syphilia” and “Vageena” either.
I’m a nurse, and nurses are blunt enough to say, well yes it has a pretty sound, but it’s a nasty sexually transmitted disease, or it’s baby poop, and it’s not a good name for your child.
Only if she has a brother named Doug, LOL remember when all the kids were named after "Days of Our Lives" stars?
Well, it’s my best friend and he is not known to lie. But hey, anything is possible.
HOw about this one?
I’d give him credit for being secure in himself. LOL. Our former attorney general was named Mike Cox. He didn’t go by Michael either.
Heh, you know the old man was in on it and mom was totally clueless.
Crazies have knocked Jessica out of the top 100?
My buddy’s wife is in the baby ward. She told me once about a kid named “Shithead”...prounounced shuh-theed
When I was a teen, I knew a guy named Mike Hunt.
People take the “friend of friend” out of the story, shorten the chain all the time.
Doctors and nurses can get tired of their more dysfunctional patients and they mock their ignorance and the made-up names some of them give their babies. My own OB-GYN told me that when her husband was in residency in Philadelphia, a new mother named her baby Placenta. I might have believed it if I hadn’t read that anecdote three other times.
Mason Williams made #2 & #3!
What a Gas!
What A Classical Gas!
Interesting that over half (26) of the boy’s names are Biblical or Biblically based, i.e. “Christopher”.
