Names heard about town in the last week or so

[name]Genevieve[/name]- a girl about 8 (first time I have actually heard name used)

Anyone want to add real names you have overheard children under about ten being called by in stores, playgrounds, etc.?

I teach a class once a week of kids 5-7 years old. Their names are:

Mirym (pronounced [name]Miriam[/name])
[name]Jacob[/name] (two of them)
[name]Sierrah[/name] ([name]Sierra[/name])
[name]Caden[/name] - boy

I’m doing tutoring, and the three seventh grade girls I work with are Attiya, [name]Alicia[/name], and [name]Alex[/name]…

[name]Jonah[/name] is a relatively new baby in my neighborhood, with older brothers [name]Caleb[/name] and [name]Eli[/name].


I’m a nanny for a few families and the kids are…

[name]Griffin[/name] (4)
[name]Jameson[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] “JT” (3)
[name]Marin[/name] (6 months)

[name]Ella[/name] “[name]Elly[/name]” (8)
[name]Avery[/name] (6)
[name]Josie[/name] (4)

[name]Jasper[/name] (4 months)

And I also volunteer in the NICU and holy moly there are some nutty names in there. Next time I’m there I’ll make a mental note of some of them. Off the top of my head though Myi-ariah (pn my-area), [name]Axel[/name] (triplet to [name]Jansen[/name] and a little girl whose name I’m blanking on), Mykael (me-kay-el), [name]Nancy[/name] (not weird, just so dated for a wee one today [name]IMO[/name]), Kainaan (as in [name]Canaan[/name]). Of course there’s been a decent amount of [name]Joshua[/name]'s, [name]Elijah[/name]'s, [name]Jackson[/name]'s, etc. Only one [name]Ava[/name] though, shocking. And a good amount of more traditional names like [name]Mary[/name], [name]Margaret[/name], [name]Henry[/name], [name]Matthew[/name], etc.

The children of my friends [all young kids]:




[name]Harley[/name] [girl]
[name]Ryan[/name] [girl]







(3 of those are related to me). all are under 3 yrs old.


Two friends of mine just had girls:
[name]Sierra[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Ashlyn[/name] [name]Jade[/name]

I volunteer as a tutor once a week…my students this week included [name]Sarah[/name] (11), [name]McKenna[/name] (5) and [name]Rachel[/name] (13).

My friend told me her NCT class’s baby names today (we are in the UK). If I can remember all of them, they were: [name]Arthur[/name], [name]Frederick[/name], [name]Robert[/name], [name]Tallulah[/name], [name]Olivia[/name], [name]Hannah[/name], [name]Ruby[/name]. Mostly quite predictable, although you don’t see many [name]Roberts[/name] these days. I’m glad to see [name]Arthur[/name] on the rise.

Some of kids names in our area:

(I wish I was joking)

[name]Morgan[/name] (girl)

[name]Ashlyn[/name] (twin)

[name]Caroline[/name] (twin)

[name]Riley[/name] (3 or 4 of them)

[name]Bailey[/name] (2)

[name]Allison[/name] (3)


I met my first [name]Finn[/name] today- he was three months old and a real cutie! I know this name is popular right now but he was the first I’ve actually met!

I also met a [name]Georgia[/name] (first I have ever met) who was about 21 mths. and shopping with her aunt and I recently met a boy at a playground named [name]Brooks[/name] and a girl at the same playground named [name]Jasmine[/name].

[name]Gunner[/name], [name]Hunter[/name] and [name]Cannon[/name]… Oh my!! I think most of us wish you were joking, too!

Heard a father calling his 2 year-old [name]Isaiah[/name] yesterday in a store.

I have a moms group, none of the children are over 4. And most of the names seem quite predictable really:

[name]Macy[/name], [name]Hannah[/name] (sisters)
[name]Bria[/name], [name]Cole[/name] (brother and sister)
[name]Caitlin[/name], [name]Emily[/name] (sisters)
[name]Grace[/name], [name]Katie[/name], [name]Ryan[/name] (siblings)
[name]Ava[/name], [name]James[/name] (brother and sister)
[name]Abigail[/name], [name]Isabella[/name] (sisters)
[name]Jenna[/name], [name]Ashlyn[/name] (sisters)
[name]Luke[/name], Leyna (brother and sister)
[name]Aubrey[/name], [name]Rylan[/name] (sisters)

and many more…

My closest friends with children have a:
[name]Cian[/name], [name]Cadel[/name] (brothers)

It’s interesting that children with classic names have siblings with classic names most of the time. For example…

And those with crazy/weird (ugly, I might add, sometimes) are also in sibling sets. Like the [name]Scout[/name], [name]Zander[/name], [name]Blake[/name] trio.

Also interesting is that a child with a popular name right now will also have a sibling with a really popular name too…

These are all cute names, but really common now.


twins girls names [name]Brooklyn[/name] and Brinkley and lil sis Bisbee.
