  • Wow, I’m amazed at how many names are on this list that kids of my friends have. And to think so many people go for the ‘original’ name……if only they knew it’s most likely been used by many

  • I’m still struggling with names – I like so many of them but none feel quite right… I guess once they are born you just kind of know…
