Aiden, I love it. But dammit I’m sick of it. And the Jayden’s and Hayden’s and Kaiden’s UH! I’m sorry, they’ve become so mainstream and unoriginal, they really piss me off.

Ava was my top girl name but it’s so high on those popularity lists! I’m frustrated because it was one of the few baby girl names my Fiance and I could agree on.

If it weren’t for Twilight I would have used Jacob in a heartbeat.  I also love Aidan, but that’s off our list as well.

I loved the name Isabella way before Twilight and now I refuse to use it. I always loved Sophie too and I still might use it anyway.

@chittychittybanebane:Jackson is our boys name we have “reserved” ahahahahahaha. We still plan on using it no matter how popular it becomes. Fiance has ALWAYS wanted to name his first born son, Jackson. 😀

Brooklyn… we both LOVE NY so we talked about the name Brooklyn but it’s just popping up everywhere around here now.

I LOVE Jacob, but alas it has been bastardized by Twilight.

Also any form of Khayla, Jayla, and Braylen, Jaylen, Jaden, Aiden, Kayden,

Matter of fact ALL names that can be spelt with K (thank you Kardashians):  Khloe, Kourtney, Kim, Kayla, Kaylen, Kennedy, kris, Kristian, Kristopher, Kim.  UGH.

I love older names, especially for girls, but it seems those kinds of names have rocketed up the charts in recent years (Ava, Sophie/ia, Olivia, Audrey, Emma, etc…)

I remember when I was in school there were like 4 Jennifers and 3 Melissas and 4 Staceys in every class…I think in 5-10 years it’ll be like that again with this new wave of names.

@JamieinMN: I cringe when I see kid’s name spellings like that. The names we have in mind aren’t terribly popular, so that’s a good thing. What’s funny is that I really like one of our friend’s name. We talked about it and may use it depending on the forces that be.

I have wanted to name my daughter Sierra since I was little (it was my grandmother’s name that I never met). I thought it was so unique and original but now it seems to be very popular. Boo!

@Aubergold: Co-sign to every name you wrote. Personally, I like the name Jacob. Twilight will hopefully be forgotten in a decade or a generation, so that the name returns to be a Biblical name only.
