I was discussing with my anatomy & physiology teacher (for a massage course) his children who are 7yrs, 5yrs and 8 months and I of course asked their names which are, respectively, [name]Samuel[/name], [name]Bella[/name] and [name]Sienna[/name]. And they’re such lovely names, but I couldn’t help but cringe internally at the fact that he had three kids under ten with names that have all rated quite highly on the popularity list over the last ten years and are all within the top 50 in Australia right now. If you count [name]Bella[/name] as [name]Isabella[/name], then [name]Samuel[/name] is the least popular name at Number 12!
But they are popular for a reason. They’re good names. So on top of cringing internally, there was the guilt! The guilt for judging him for being so common!
Does anyone else find themselves automatically re-acting to popular names in the same way?
Are there any names that you just don’t understand the popularity of at all? (For me it’s [name]Madison[/name]. I have an unnatural despise for it!)
[name]Do[/name] you think people should try to be more original?
[name]Do[/name] you think us Berries think way too much about this stuff?
