There really are a bunch of little girls named Madison. I can't keep track anymore, but at least 3 girls from my graduating high school class have named their daughter that

My friend's cousin just had a baby a month ago and named him Mason. And his big sister is Mackenzie (they call her Mac for short too which drives me nuts ...no offense if that's anyone's nickname reading this ). And their cousin's name is Addison. Cute kids, but definitely not a fan of their names.

My parents like to claim they were trend setters . I never knew anyone else with my name (Alyssa) until ~7th or 8th grade. There definitely are more and more little girls with my name now. People aren't as confused by the spelling/pronunciation (and how I've gotten some strange variations ) anymore. I just have to make sure I don't say, "Hi, I'm Alyssa," because then they think it's Melissa

When I have kids, I'll give them names that are not that common. Meaning, instead of going for the top 10 names, I'll go for top 50. This way, my kids wouldn't be one of 5 Michaels or Daniels or Jessicas or Sarahs in the classroom.

See, it's an epidemic!!

I'm happy for your friends, sorry for the name though, seriously, google 'Addison' and this is the first thing that comes up:

Trust me, I'm not an advocate of the name. Apparently they chose it because both of their names start with an "A" as well.
