My kids names are "popular" names and we've yet to come across anyone with the same name I don't think it's like 20 years ago where every classroom had multiple Sarah's, Hannah's, Jake's, Scott's etc

How popular is too popular?

I don't think I could ever pick a top 10 name. There are some I've really liked but just the fact they are top 10 puts me off. DS has got a normal but probably not in the top 100 name and there is another boy with the same name at osh club (out of only 20 kids!)

We didn't think about popularity at all when choosing a name. We just went through a list we liked and picked some names. We ended up with a top 5 name for DS and haven't noticed any others. Except a. Cousin of DH has a child with the same name but we rarely see them.

Some popular names are classic and stay in the top 50. others are fads and fade away into oblivion after a decade.

I like names that aren't in the top 100, but are still classic/known/traditionally spelt.
My DS's name fits the above criteria, hasn't been in the top 100 and we've yet to meet another child in the same age group with his name.
I'm not having more babies, but if I was I think I'd try and name outside of the top 100 again. The girl's name we had picked if DS was a girl isn't top 100 either.

We used a name for DS1 that was in the top 30. I swear every third boy in the playgrounds we visit has the same name! At daycare there is another boy in the same class with the same first name, and whose surname is almost the same - just has two additional letters at the start. It drives me mad!
We gave DS2 a far more unusual (Irish) name that many people haven't heard of - and yet there is still another boy at daycare (albeit in another class) with the same name.
Unless you randomly pull scrabble letters out of a bag, chances are you'll run into other kids with the same name.
