A word to the wise. A little advice, if you want it - which you should. When you ask someone what they are naming their child, no matter how popular that name is at the moment or even how pretty you think it is inspite of that, never, ever reply with, "that is such a popular name right now, too!"
Its annoying and it doesn't help. I don't care if the name I have chosen is number 50 or number 3 on the current year's most popular list of names. I want to feel original. At the moment the baby in my belly is the only one whose name I care about and if I have gone ahead and chosen a name in spite of its current popularity than I have a good reason. I do not want to think about how many kids of the same name will be starting kindergarten with her in 5 years, okay?
So, think before you speak, people!!!!
Thank you for your consideration. :-)
