    I had a friend from a large 1950's family. Names?
    Martha, Jane, Sarah, Peter and Charles. There must have been a run on Martha's back then, because I know several who were all in the same class in school.

    The ones I can remember recently that stick out in my mind is I met a man who is about 20 who's first name is Atreyu (and yes, he is named after The Neverending Story).

    Same place, a young lady about the same age named Arian (Pronounced Ari-Anne) apperently this is derived from astrological terminology and has something to do with the sign of Aries - however I can't get it out of my mind "arian" as in the tern the Nazi's used to designated the blonde-blue eyed ideal they were after....

    Just noticed one of my daughter's friend's name is Feryn which I thought was pretty.

    Haha. It's all cool...

    So can we also start naming kids Nixon yet? You know, Jaxon but with a twist.

    Well, I just lost an hour of my life on the Social Security site thanks to this thread
    http://www.ssa.gov/OACT/babynames/index.html
    Unfortunately, it's not possible to search for "rhymes with Aiden" or "contains misplaced Y's," but still very interesting.

    Names around me this year and last: Jonah, Max, Jax, Clover, Sky, Shane, Matteo.

    I had a dream last night that we named our future child Paisley. IDK kinda cute, but I cant really decide.

    Many moons ago, if it was a girl Grace was already chosen.

    Boy names seem to not come as easily, Liam and Lincoln are in the mix but since we are talking future child, its just for the sake of conversation.

    I knew many Asian girls named Grace when I was a kid in school.

    I think Grace is very nice, too.

    But the grade-school-feminist in me still wonders if that name was chosen by parents who valued understatedness for their girls above all else.

    And by the way, the Asian woman named Grace I knew in college could drink, study, laugh and sleep with various men with the best of 'em.

    My all time favorite name... Bumpy. Yes, Bumpy. His sister is Beauty. Guess Beauty & Beast might have been too cruel.

    I love old fashioned names. Hate the K and Y trends...ugh. DH and I are currently TTC, and we've tentatively decided on Caroline for a girl and Bennett for a boy. Not complicated or unknown, but not hugely popular either.

    I know a kid named Bremmer after the creek that his parents lived on when he was born. It's a good name.

    I like my name: Allison. I dont hear that many around. My mother's maiden name is Halsey, and she decided she would name her second child this, whether is was a boy or a girl. And I got a brother. I'm pretty sure he is one of very few guys who can successfully pull this off, which he does quiet well.

    I really like the name Thalia, even though it could be hard for people to say/spell correctly. I also like Coryna.

    Oh and my SO went to school with a girl named Lasagna. Pronounced just like it should be. I wish I was joking.
