I seem to be seeing a lot of Sohpie’s, too. And basically any boy name that ends in -en. Those are getting a little ridiculous at this point.

Any name with a bizarre spelling (Alicia spelt Allyseyia, etc), backwards names (Neveah, Rehtaeh).

I worked in child care, and occasionally worked with the poor pre-K kids who were trying to learn how to spell all those unique names!

Sadly, Emily. SO loves it, and Emilio is a family name, so we may use it as a middle name if we have a girl someday

I’m a teacher and I cannot tell you how many Kayleigh/ Kali/ Kaylee/ Cayleigh’s I have. SO annoying. And Emmas. And Ellas.

And Connors. I hate that name.

I named my daughter Kayleigh 16 years ago. I thought I was being so unique, I had no idea it was trendy! I’ve encountered quite a few Addisons and Rileys. Aiden is about wore out too.

 

@lealorali:  I actually new a couple who named their child K-lee if you can believe it.

In my area we have lots of Naomi, Olivia, Katelyn, Ella, Ava,

Connor, Ryan, Brayen, Jayden, 

I’m so sick of these names now!

I was a camp counselor this summer, and the number of Ella/Ellies was unreal! Also saw lots of: Olivia, Molly, Zoe, and Laney/Lanie.

For boys, we had a bunch of Owens.

To be honest, I really think all of these names are adorable. So funny, because that’s probably what our parents were thinking about Ashley/Jessica/Caitlin.
