I think names tend to go in trend waves – they always have. When I was growing up there was an abundance of Karens, Alisons and Melissas – I don’t really come across many of those names now. There seems to be a trend currently of girls called Charley, Max and Dan at my kids’ schools. It doesn’t really bother me but I have tried to call our kids classic names which won’t date (hopefully).
