Name Eavesdropper

I find myself always having these conversations when I am out with my family or friends…

Me: “He has such a cute name!”
Person: “Who?”
Me: “That little boy over there, his name is ____”
Person: “[name_m]How[/name_m] do you know?”
Me: “I heard his mom say it!”
Person: “Uh, I guess it’s okay? I don’t care what his name is.”

I guess I am a name eavesdropper. My ears just always perk up with I hear a name. I used to work in a day care so I heard kid names constantly (so many Bellas and Liams…) Now, I go out with my nephews so I still hear kids names all the time. Most aren’t noteworthy but some are!

Here is what I’ve heard recently:
[name_f]Emma[/name_f] and [name_u]Quinn[/name_u] (both girls)
[name_f]Aria[/name_f] and [name_f]Kaylee[/name_f]

[name_m]How[/name_m] about you? Are you a name eavesdropper? What have you heard lately?

Haha, I’ve definitely done this before! I work in a store, so I get to hear names shouted fairly often. I always find my ears perking up to hear the names. I’m usually disappointed, though…so many Bentleys, Brantleys, Braylynns, and Avas. Other than what I’ve listed already, lately I’ve heard:


Im totally a name eavesdropper.

Some interesting ones I’ve heard recently are
[name_m]Harry[/name_m] x 3
[name_u]Riley[/name_u] (boy)
[name_u]Taylor[/name_u] (boy)


One day I heard a “[name_f]Bennington[/name_f]”!
