So a friend and I were talking names recently and it turns out he had never heard the name [name]Leah[/name] : D. Like, I mentioned the name and he was like “that is a name? I have never heard that before”. And I thought he was egging me on in a really weird way (but why would he?) and I talked about how it’s in the Bible and I’ve known tons of Leahs and he is a smart guy who is aware of lots of names, especially Biblical and Shakespearean ones like [name]Keturah[/name] and [name]Cordelia[/name], and how has he not heard [name]Leah[/name]? But somehow, somehow, no, this was the truth – no girl or woman named [name]Leah[/name] has ever crossed this man’s path to his memory. [name]Lee[/name]? Yes. [name]Hannah[/name]? Yes. [name]Rachel[/name]? Yes. [name]Leah[/name]? No.
So the next time you are worried that a top 30 name may be “too popular”, bear in mind that things like this happen : D.
