did you know since 2000 nearly 2500 people named their baby Baby?

1,026 girls were named Unique.

Lately I've been noticing all the apostrophes (') especially when they're just "there". I mean, Sy'rai or O'shea, fine...but when I see a guy named Greg' it just makes me laugh.

I've seen it stuck on the end of names...not Greg specifically but it's there.

Do you guys like the names that are words? Like Destiny, which is so common now that it's not even strange to hear it. I think I know 3 Destiny's actually. But my daughter had an Eternity in her preschool class last year.

And the intentionally odd spellings of common names has to go...

Back in college (1996) there was a girl in my class named Chastity.

And I also knew another one named Charity.

My sister wants to name her kids: Chaysen Dane..and Breezelyn Shai.

I like the name Jacelinn Alize and for a boy: Jaden Bono Elijah.

My friend named her kids, Blaise, Zanai Bronwyn, and Xandra Layne.

Oh and we're all Caucasian... just a bit on the unusual side...

What baffles me is that Madison, a last name, is at #2. I've never met someone whose first name was Madison in my life, but I'm sure that if I did, the first words out of my mouth would be "James, I presume?"

Madison's quite a popular girls name now - since I've had kids, I've come across heaps of them! It's weird how names can suddenly appear and then take off like crazy!!

Madison is heaps popular now.....i have met heaps of "Maddy's" we have a next door neighbour that has recently moved in that has a 3 year old called "BJ"...that's it "BJ" it apparently is not short for anything..... the mum just liked the sound of BJ! I hate when parents try to be "different"
