Mine was 26th the year I was born. I didn’t realize it was that popular.

My name is not in the top 1000 female names for any year of birth in the last 50 years.

This is why no one can spell it correctly.  It is rare to find someone to spell it right the first time.  Fi got it on the first try.  No wonder I think he is so special.

Mine was 196th the year I was born, and was 926th in 2005 when they last updated.  One time its nice to not be popular Laughing

Mine was number 16 for the year in which I was born.  For 2006, it was number 972.  I assume it will eventually become like “Mildred,” that no one under 80 will have it.

Mine was 3, and my Fiance was 2! UGH. I hate how popular my name was/growing up being one of so many in the group.

My name hasn’t been in the top 1000 for the past 22 years (since I was born).  Knew that!  It peaked in the 400th range in 1949. Me, old ladies, and a few Asian-Americans around my age (whose parents strangely favor the name?), the only ones who’ve got it.

My name is super freakin’ popular. I didn’t know a single person with my name growing up and I swear, everybody names their babies the same name as me. Except now they spell it weird so I have to constantly say, “it’s spelled with a Y” not an IE, not an EE, not an IEY or whatever. My parents ALMOST named me Emory and I wish they would have. I feel like everybody, their mom, and their dog have the same name as me. Oh well.

Noone in the world (well maybe not) has my name. My mother made it up. There were two names that she wanted so she made on long name.
