I was just thinking after TheFutureMcBride’s post on popular baby names, that I haven’t heard many of them in person, although they are supposed to be very common. What names have you’ve actually heard on a child you know?
And let’s stick with under 5 years old?

A BAZILLION -AYDENS. Aidan, Kayden, Jayden, Brayden. OMG enough.
I know 3 Lukes being born this year.
So many Noahs.
And a lot of “Grace”s for middle names. I know four little girls with that middle name, all under 3.

I don’t know a lot of babies, but here’s some I’ve run into lately.

I don’t really know any 5 or under kids, so I haven’t paid attention to names. Also, I’ve hidden all my friends on facebook as soon as they announced their pregnancy.

A lot of Noah’s and quite a number of Griffen’s for boys names. Haleigh (Hailey) is pretty prevalent for girls.

@ohheavenlyday: I’m with you on the -en / -an epidemic! I have 2 friends who totally bought into it. One has a Brycen and Kayden, the other has a Kaydan and Jayden. Why??? These kids are all like 5-7 now, though, so maybe it has actually moved on. Let’s hope!

Grayson, Braden, Caden, basically anything with an “an”, “on” or “en” on the end.
I’m hearing a lot of Addyson, Addison, basically just variations on “Madison” and Addeleine, Addelyn, variations on “Madeline”
And of course, the Twilight names. Edward, Jacob, Bella, Isabella, Annabelle, and so on and so forth.
Thankfully the Nevaeh trend seems to be dying out.

I try to forget my son’s classmate’s names.
I do remember a Nevaeh, Grace, Aden, Blake, LOTS OF HUNTERs, Ivy, lots of names ending in “den” and many other oddball names that I look at and cringe.
There’s also Liberty, Storm, Chance, Gage, and several others I can’t remember.
