I was watching a popular television show and someone made an offensive comment about the name [name]Britney[/name] - Is this fair to the unsuspecting, well-intentioned parents out there who fell in love with this name 15+ years ago?
I had this thought… what will our current faves feel like in 10+ years?
It’s true that [name]Sophia[/name] is a beautiful name but didn’t [name]Christina[/name] have the same glamorous/ethnic sound to us many years back? I named my daughter [name]Violet[/name]… Is there a name from the past that we think [name]Violet[/name]'s popularity/associations etc. can be compared to?
I think the only way to get an idea of how our favorite names will feel to us in 10+ years is to compare it to a name that has become overly familiar to us.
We won’t know for sure, but can anyone make a prediction and explain why?
Ex) Is [name]Addison[/name] the new [name]Allison[/name]: Endearing nicknames [name]Addie[/name] and [name]Allie[/name], similar sounds and mass appeal. Okay, this one is a bit obvious but you get the idea
