Some Names We've Heard Lately, take 2!
When someone edited, it made the last one completely wonky! So here's the new, unwonky one. Please don't edit too much! haha.
I know there are a few of us who like to post names we've heard here and there... and I thought it would be nice if there was one place we could post names, to both see what's popular/used/etc., and also maybe to see what to steer clear of. :)
I've been meaning to start this thread for a while, but here it is! If you hear a name (or names!) you like, love, or hate, feel free to post them here, for everyone to see and comment on! Hopefully it can be a useful tool to all of us considering names and popularity, etc. If you feel comfortable, it would be nice to post your state/province/country, etc., so we know in which general area these names are coming from. :)
I'll start out, below. Feel free to post your own names, and comment below!
I can't believe I forgot! I met a Winter today, too. I was so beyond excited, haha, I love Winter. :)
@Inga - I'm with you on the editing bug! This is driving me bonkers. :/ I love Violet and Lucy together!
Today I heard Cameron (boy, I think--I just heard the name called, so I suppose it could have been a girl), Hannah, and Claire.
Ooh yes, it is wonky!Yesterday I encountered a boy named Montreal. That was one place name I hadn't heard as a FN before.
In the church nursery on Sunday we had:Layla
Mikayla (nn Kayla)
I really wish someone would fix the issue with editing on this site!
Some friends recently had a second daughter. I love their sibset: Violet and Lucy
I'm not sure this is really going to go through, since this thread got all wonky, but I'm hoping this will set it straight. :)
Anywho, I had an interview for a job today, and I thought the names of people I met were quite lovely!
Bonnie (meh, I don't love it, but I thought it was interesting for someone who's only a couple years ahead of me!)
First time poster, love this thread. I live in Ireland so stuck in some native names I have heard recently;

Today at work (yes, I worked on Easter! :/) I heard:
And I heard Ivy at church yesterday. Pleasantly surprised by all of them. :)
There is a new little boy named Sebastien in my daughter's class. I also found out that the Brodie in the morning class is a different child. I thought it was the same Brodie that is in her group. That means that in a kindergarten of about 40 children, there are 3 boys named Brodie. I had no idea that it was that common.
Got my students for swim lessons, one is named Alix (not sure if it's a boy or girl)
I came across Amelia and Georgia today. Common, traditional names, but still refreshing, imo. And more interesting than the millions of Nicoles and Stephanies I keep coming across. :)
Today I heard:
LOVED hearing Annie and Eleni! I love those. :)
One of the girls I teach swim lessons to is named Amberlee
One of my friends had a baby boy last night his name is
Riley Benjamin he joins big brother Caleb Brooks
