I have a lot of friends who have daughters named Ava.  SOOO glad I didn’t jump on that train, and I was close.

 

Aiden, Jayden, Madison, Ainsley, Hunter, Devin, Jacob, Jackson/Jaxson, Aniston (the parents deny naming her after Jennifer Aniston but I have a hard time believing that), Brady (both girls and boys), Brody, Gavin and Corbin.

 

The last two hurt because that’s what I named my boys and I didn’t want them to have a common name. I swear at the time I didn’t know anyone else who had kids with those names.

I worked in an urgent care before having my baby, and I saw lots of:

boys: Jack, Henry, Jaxon, Liam, Chase, Landon, “aden” names like Jaden/Braden etc

girls: Emma, Sophia/Sophie, Olivia, London, “anna” names like Lilianna/Julianna etc, and all the “leigh””ylie” names like Bryleigh/Brayleigh/Rylie etc

Also, I had my baby last month and we named her Luna, and it turns out that another Luna was born at the hospital that week!
