    At my schools (80s baby, 90s primary school) there were heaps of Amy, Stephanie, Emma, Sarah, Jessica, Kylie, Rebecca. I came across a Melinda in high school but prior to that, the only Mels I knew were Melissas.

    I think Melinda's and Belinda's are more classic 70's than 80's.
    I know a few young Jessica's, a couple of Katie's and I also know two teens called Rachel. I probably would have considered Kate as a name for one of my own kids if I didn't know so many adults my age with the name. I see Jessica and Katie coming back in to use more than the Kylie/Sharon/Peta kind of names.

    I went to school with a Melinda (born in '77). Not a name I would personally use, but don't hate it.

    The Melinda i know was born in 1980 so Class of 1998. Going by my sister's friends, there seem to have been quite a few Melindas/Belindas in that "born 1979-81" cusp

    My husband loved the name Katelyn/Caitlin but I really didn't want a "Katie" daughter so it's her middle name instead and the more I hear it, the more I love it. Though she definitely suits her first name better

    Kate is definitely a common name in my age range, my DSD (5yo) is called Kate and I find it a bit of an 'awkward' era of name, not old enough to be back in fashion and too many people I know my age with it I also have one of these 'popular' 80s names maybe that's why, I can't imagine calling my baby my name now
