Hi all, expecting our second bub, a boy, in the new year and we both really like the name Oliver. There are others we each like a lot and the other thinks are ok, but we only agree on Oliver. The only issue is it has been the #1 name for 3 years running, and top 10 for more. I looked at the stats and out of all baby boys born in our state, 1 in 66 are named Oliver in 2015.
Our first boy's name was 48th or something when we named him, but he still has another with his name in his preschool. Which doesn't bother me, but I think it would be annoying if there were 4-5 in his year or soccer team.
Do you think it matters? Should we try to agree on another name? What is your experience growing up with a common name?
On the flip side I figure he's not going to be going through his whole working life with his age group, he'll work with and know people of all ages.
I'm not sure what to do or if I'm worrying too much about it.
