The New Babies I Know

Over the past two years there has been a baby boom amongst my family, friends and coworkers. And every time I find out a new name that was chosen or being considered, I feel like a kid on [name]Christmas[/name] :slight_smile: I just found out today that my sister in law is having a girl and will be naming her [name]Anabelle[/name]. Which led me to reflect on all of the names that people I know have named/are about to name their children. Some are crazy (which is what I love about them), some are traditional (which I also love) and yes, to some of the cynical berries out there, they are all REAL.
