    My Darling Husband and I have a name picked out for a girl and have had one for a really long time…Penelope..and of course it’s become popular and jumped to top 100 because of Tina Fey and Kourtney Kardashian using it, but if we are blessed enough to have a little girl we are still going to use it because we love the name so much.

    i purposely chose a name for my son that was not very common at the time (1985).  i didn’t know anyone with that name.  it is now on the lists for boys and girls.

    my name was so popular that there were 5 of us in grade 9 homeroom class.

    We chose a name that’s not even ranked.  But, we’re naming our son after my Father-In-Law, so popularity wasn’t even a consideration.  I do know some people though that looked at the social security administration and wouldn’t consider a name that was in the top 100.

    My daughter’s name is Annelise.  It doesn’t appear to be in the top 100 but somewhere in the top 1000.  We did not consider the rankings at all when we picked it but rather wanted a German name because her father was a native German.

    Technically ours is in the top 600 for a girl. We don’t have a boy name picked out yet though. It has gone from top 900 to top 600 in the past 10 years. Hopefully that trend doesn’t continue.

    Our boy name we picked out was only in the top 200 (with a more common spelling) up until last year and then it jumped to the top 50. But my FFI is stuck on it, so we’re just going to keep the name anyway if we have a boy.

    Our girl name is at the end of the top 1000, so I don’t imagine that changing anytime soon.

    Ours is in the low-40s, but it’s a family name, so I don’t think we would have cared if it was higher on the list (coming from a Sarah born in the mid-80s).

    My top choice for our son (I don’t want to post it until we’ve officially decided) is in the top 500.  Popularity is definitely a consideration for us.  I know I want to stay out of the top 100.

    @ellebeerob:  Charlotte is a family name that I’ve loved my whole life, so it has really saddened me to watch it creep up in popularity!  I fully expect it to hit top 5 within the next 2-3 years.

    @Ms.Bookworm:  DD’s name is Penelope 🙂 she was born in 2010. When KK announce that she’d named her daughter Penelope, I got probably 20 texts and emails from family/friends with  their condolences, haha. Even though it’s jumped in popularity, we has still not met another Penelope and everyone comments on how cute and original her name is. Stick with it, it’s a lovely name!!
