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.

We chose Charles last year for our baby. Not on the list. We chose the family name route instead of the trend name.
I have no idea if this is any good but this site claims;
“Contents: good & bad, beneficial & harmful, best & worst, baby names; dealing with or changing unsatisfactory adult first or last names; women’s last name changes at time of marriage; use of nicknames vs. given names; unconventionally spelled names; androgynous names; long vs. short names; connotations of names; impressions conveyed by names.”
Yes they charge for the info. Just wanted to point out a possible resource or type of for those who want all possible help with baby names.
I once worked with a guy called Dick Tooher we all called him by his nickname Slipper !! Slipper D.T.
I once worked with a guy named Dick Kurtz, I kid you not and we kidded him a lot.
I attended HS with a boy whose name was Dick Click (for real!).
I knew a guy named Richard Head....honest.
Why would anyone name their daughter “Brooklyn”?
I knew a Dick Hartigan and a Richard Hedd.
I also personly know George Washington, John Adams, James Madison, Woodrow Wilson, John Kennedy and Ronald Regan (close). I had the honor of introducing Woody to Ron once.
None will compare to the girl named L-A pronounced LaDasha.
Next year, “Trayvon” will be popular. Fifteen years from now, that name will make the news again as kids whose parents gave them a criminal’s name all go to jail.
Good pimp name. LOL.
That crapola name is spreading like a rash where I live. (shudder)
It will be LaTrayvon or Shatrayvon
That's a hot girl's name.
Usually didn't see many ugly Jessicas.
I remember as a kid in the 80s thinking how unfortunate the nickname Dick and how I wouldn’t go by it if it were mine. Today? I think it’s awesome! I’d proudly go by it just to rattle cages. Yeah! So? That’s right, my name is DICK!
Just damn, Mason. Too many Dunkin Munchkins and too much Underwood deviled ham.
“I once worked with a guy named Dick Kurtz, I kid you not and we kidded him a lot.”
Had a kid in our grade school (mid-60s) named Harry Peters.
I used to be able to tell what soap operas women watched by the names they gave their babies.
It would be easier (as a kid’s name) simply to spell “Defendant.”
