My name is definitely a fad name. The graph even proved that, lol. I’m on the tail-end of the “fad” so most Erins I know are a few years older than me and therefore it’s already kind of a mom-name like the article talked about ha. I’ve been in love with a really rare/unique girl name since I was a teenager and DH and I already agreed that if we have a daughter, that will be the name we use ๐Ÿ™‚ and as for boys, DH is a third, so our hypothetical son will be “DH name IV”. The first name is pretty timeless and has many nickname options, so that is nice.

@PermaStudent:  Oh, definitely.  Personally…Dr. Tiffany sounds like…well yeah anyway.  

 

I wonder what the next fad will be…!

@peachacid:  Ahhhh! Well…. I guess the norm is always changing. I could pick out only a couple of names from that list that fit my personal “Doctor” rule ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for the wake up call!

Niether my first or middle names show up as ever being in the Top 1000. Variants of both, but never my actual name. My middle name, Lysette, isn’t there, but Lizette is. I asked my mom how she got that spelling of it and she says, “That’s how I thought it was spelled! I’d never seen it written down before.”

My name is on the list for 80’s trends. My mom never thought it would be popular, but it became pretty popular. I have never met an Erin who was born before 1970. You never know what will become popular, but if it is a pretty name you can bet that it eventually will be popular. My best friend was named Leila (pronounced Lie-luh) and everyone remarked on what a nice name it was. Now I know lots of little girls named Lila, Lilah, Lyla, Laila, Leila and Layla! She was the only person we knew with that name when we were growing up. I love the name Harper for a boy, but I see so many girls named Harper now that I would feel bad giving a boy that name. Thank you for this article!

@IzzyBear:  I like the names you picked, but I know lots and lots of little girls with those names. They’re beautiful, but if you want something less popular then keep writing down new names ๐Ÿ™‚

This was a super interesting article!

I have often wondered what it is that makes names trendy–when I was a kid, I thought for sure I would name my future daughters Beth, Christine, and Lydia. Now those names sound so… funny… to me–but obviously they sounded beautiful and perfect in 1996!

Now I absolutely love Olivia, Lily, Ella, Harper… but they’re all incredibly popular! But I honestly feel like I don’t like them because they’re popular–I just think they’re pretty! But obviously the popularity of them has some effect, or my preferences would be the same as they were 15 years ago!

We like Eliot for a girl and John for a boy right now, but those could change. ๐Ÿ™‚

@EMCasey:  I’m hoping that by the time we’re TTC (like 2-4 years) they won’t be as popular anymore. I also hate that Peyton is becoming a girl’s name.

Love this! Totally shared it on my facebook! DH & I are waiting until our DD is born to name her and its driving my family bonkers… they keep giving me name suggestions and their opinions on random names. I just don’t care to hear it!
