I have a son/s named something else not in the top 10
Nope but jack is our top choice if we have a boy! (DH is convinced bub is so we haven't even chosen a girls name XD)
DS's first and middle names are in that list (middle name is his fathers and great grand fathers middle names). i was completely aware that his first name was very popular when i named him. but i'd adored that name for so long (well before it sky-rocketed in popularity) that i couldnt not call him that. it was just his name im so glad i didnt drop it because of its very high popularity like i almost did. i love his name so much. and hey, it must be an awesome name for it to be so popular
personally, i dont get the 'more unique the better' name thing. i love names for their own merit, not how many other people have used/heard of them.
Yes I have a Joshua born in 06
DS's name is a variation of one of them but I doubt his name itself will ever be top 10
One handed hubbing on the go
far out. sensitive much? what i ment was that those names are the top 10 so i assume babies with those names make up a large percentage of babies born for that year. 70% of people said they didnt use one of those popular names for their child born that year so that would mean they chose a 'less popular' name. im not saying that those names arnt nice or that people chose one of those names just because thay were popular but doing something that a lot of other people are doing, whatever your reasons for doing it, is still following a trend, hence the sheep reference.
