    It doesn’t matter as long as you both love it and are happy with it. Both names we have for Wombat are different with a more common middle name in case Wombat would prefer his/her middle name to the unique first.

    I don’t understand the name popularity issue at all – maybe because I don’t have kids yet ๐Ÿ™‚ But I say, name your child what you like, whichever name that would be. If they wouldn’t be embarrassed to write it on a resume or tell it to their friends, and you love it, then it’s a good name!

    I didn’t even know if the name we have picked out is on the top 100 list. I just looked, it’s not. Either way, I don’t think I’d care b/c I like the name.

    We’re Jewish, so we’re naming her after a deceased relative. It was pretty easy to pick b/c we just wrote down the names of our grandparents and greatparents and picked what we like best.

    We went for “uncommon, but not weird” with our son. We’ve received a lot of compliments on it.

    Our daughter’s name is old-fashioned and uncommon; we got a few comments on it before she was born, but after she was born, we’ve only heard compliments.

    Also, my name is pretty uncommon; some might think it’s weird, but I love it.  It really fits my personality.  Name your kid what you want, even if it is unusual/unique.  Your baby might very well grow up to love that old-fashioned name!  ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am a fan of uncommon but not weird.  I don’t want my children to have 4 other classmates with their same name but on the flip side, I want people to be able to spell and pronounce their name correctly and not think we are crazy people for the name we chose.

    We plan to chose already existing names that aren’t super popular (likely out of top 100, definitely out of the top 25 or so).

    I loved Matilda and Clementine, which are very old fashioned but FH and everyone in my family vetoed me. He suggested CLAUDIA which UGH I hated, and Priscilla. Priscilla?? Then he suggested Courtney and I told him it was not 1992. We finally settled on Channing which is not weird, but not common either. Her middle name is a family name.

    My Fiance and I don’t have names picked out but we already know whichever name we choose will be a ethnic name that would could only POTENTIALLY be in the top 100 in West Africa.

    We desided on classic names Elizabeth (she goes by Ellie) and Emma They both are top 10 Elizabeth is 7th for the year she was born and Emma is 2nd for the year she was born (if i remember right) But i had no idea that the names would be as popular as they are though…
