  • My children’s names are too straight forward to make this list – but they are all happy with their names thankfully. I hated mine growing up.

  • 15 years ago when I named my son Olliver (yes with a double L), it was quite rare, look at it now on the top! So much for trying to find a not so popular name!

  • I’ve a foster daughter named Khloe, although a bit more special it comes close enough to Chloe. Luckily enough my other kids didn’t make the list as we don’t like popular names where half the world runs around with.

  • A lot of the 2015 baby names were popular about 30 – 40 years ago.
    Some of those were family names from either one or two generations prior.

  • We have an Ethan (step son) in our house who’s middle name is James and my son Riley’s middle name is James. Our girl we are expecting in April her name doesn’t make the list but that’s ok because the name we have picked for her is unique and we love it.
