Boys: Aiden (and any forms of that), Ashton, Austin, Collin, Hunter, Jonah, Josiah, (names that are similar to that), Logan, Breydon, Jackson, Jacob, Noah, Liam, Kayson, Caden, Carson, Jayden, Ephraim

Girls: Chloe, (Isa)Bella, Kaylee, Ashley, Aubrey/Audrey, Elizabeth, Abigail, Ella, Addison/Adelaide, Amelia/Mia (thank princess diaries), Genevieve, Grace, Lily, Avery, Lucy, Natalie, Peyton

I keep thinking of them, I’ll add them.

Also, I don’t like it when people make funky spellings of names to make it look cool, i.e. “Jaxson” or “Ashtyn” or “Austyn”

Sophia, like you said 🙂

As a teacher it gets REALLY confusing.  It’s funny though when there are multiple kids with the same name because then the kids just saying things like, “want to play with me Emma N?” That’s what teachers do to tell them apart when calling on them and the kids pick up on it and it’s SO funny to hear them say that!

Madison, McKenzie, Kayla, or anything in that camp. But I always thought they were stupid names so I guess I’m not over them.

I am over Emma and Ava though.

@piglet_625:  Yeah, Olivia and Emma are SOOO popular right now.  As is Hannah or forms of it.

I love the name Madison, but it’s overused and I’d prefer it if my children didn’t have kids in their class with the same names.

I’ve noticed Bridget and Riley making a comeback and getting more popular too.  And I’ve had boys and girls named Riley in class.

Girl: Olivia, Sophia, Emma/Emily, Isabella, Madison, Madeline, Abigail…. I’m actually really sad that Audrey is getting so popular. That was my mother’s name and I would have liked to use it if I ever have a daughter.

Boy: Aiden for sure.. and Jayden and Brayden… and Kaden. and Hayden. OMG! Also I feel like Noah, Elijah and Gabriel and all the other names like that are overused right now.

I really love the name Emma and have always wanted to name my kid that, so I’m hoping people get “over it” very soon so I can use it without worrying that 12 other kids in her class will have her name!

I was upset when I saw the middle name we like was on the top 10 most popular list.  But then I thought “Screw it.”  I like that name darnit!  LOL

When I’m getting ready to name my kids I am definitely NOT going to use any name that has appeared on the top 100 names list for the last 5 years. Preferably not the top 200, but we’ll see.

@CorgiTales:  Same here, I’m going to try at least but I may end up like MightySapphire and use it as a middle name.

Ella.  Cute name, really getting worn out. 

Emmy/ Emily/ Emma.

Sophie/ Sophia- wonderful name, too popular right now. 

Kaitlin/ Kayla/ Kailyn/ Caitlin (etc.).  Here in the midwest, I know at least 50 people with some variation of this name, and -I never know (or can tell) what exact version it is when they introduce themselves.

McKenzie.  I just think pizza from Montana. 

Sara.  Beautiful name, but growing up in MW, there were about 30 people named Sara in every graduating class. 

On a side note, I know about 500 dogs named “Bella.”  (I worked at a dog daycare.)

Boys: Ayden, Zachary, Gavin, Bryson, Mason, Logan, Tristan, and Peyton

Girls: Reagan, Peyton, Hannah, Bella, Faith, Hope, Kaylan,  and Chloe.


I don’t have anything against these names they are just over used. 

Even though Olivia is over used I LOVE that name and plan on naming my little girl Olivia Estelle (Estelle after my great grandmother) and we are going to call her Stella (if we ever have a little girl 🙂 )
