I live in Ontario also… one of my best friends already has an Emma and another is currently pregnant with an Ava haha. The name I am seeing ALL OVER my facebook is Brooklyn. I seriously think there are five baby Brooklyns born in the last 2 years.
Gotta be honest, every time a baby is born I am SO RELIEVED when they don’t choose a name I love 🙂

mu_t: Hahahaha, I don’t know any Brooklyns but I do know two Londons. Seriously.
Also, ditto for everyone who mentioned the uprising of “en” or “on” names. My friend out in the prairies, who is a teacher, is being driven insane by about 15 kids named Aiden, Hayden, Addison, etc. She also knows a couple “Nevaehs”.

I’m from New Hampshire in the US. For girls I know a ton of babies named Sophia/Sophie, Olivia, Madeline/Maddie, and Addeline. For boys I know a ton of babies named John/Jonathon and Oliver. Also all of the Hayden/Aiden/Brayden sort of names are super popular. My LO is 3 months and i’m part of a ton of baby groups, so I see a lot of babies.

Swizzle: my nephew’s name is Wyatt and he was born in 2013. I’ve never known a Wyatt before him, but my brother was always “into” cowboys and the old west, etc, so they came up with the name because of Wyatt Earp lol

New England, all the “-ayden”s and ones like Addison, or a lot ending in -elle. (And not like Michelle or Rachel which or more common with my generation but more like Jayelle, Gisele, etc.)

Going through student teaching I had no fewer than 6 Neveah’s in just my 2 first grade classes! Ridiculous.
Ayden is very popular here in Nebraska. Also seems like Aubrey/Audrey are very popular. And a bunch of babies are being named Devon in my circle of friends.
