  7. i think amy should be on there i no millions of amy’s but they are all spelt diffenly … like that matters

  8. im suprusised my name is 2nd i only no a few emma’s.. also no affence but all my 35 years ive lived on this earthe ive neva herd of these names mia, ava, brianna, alyssa, there in the top 20!!!! (well ive herd of brianna but it was on the cinderella story….)

  9. I don’t know if this name is popular but it is another way of spelling Zachary. I made it up!
    I think it’s cute the way it’s spelled!
    DO YOU LIKE IT?????

  10. So I am wondering what part of this do 95% of you not understand??? The list has nothing to do with the general cuteness or how much an individual likes a name. The lists are a factual representation of the most commonly used names for babies born within the specified years. And as for Brittney… were all 100 of the Brittney’s that live in your neighborhood born around the years 2005-2006? Because those are the years these lists are representing. Are you older than 3 yourself? I am assuming that you are because you are posting on here. So think about it… maybe the name Brittney would have been on a list about 12 years ago when a lot of the girls that are named Brittney were actually being born.

  11. My name isn’t up there :(

    I kinda figured it wouldn’t because it isnt that common but still……….whatev

  12. you guys think your name is unpopular? my sister’s name is Carlyn (pronounced car-lin, for you dummies out there)after a little german (i think) girl my mom babysat when she was twelve. whenever we went on vacation and they had the name keychains we’d see Carly, Caroline, Carol, etc. we’d see everything but her name. at least some of you have names that are printed on keychains, so STOP WHINING!!

  13. If you give your child a Unisex name, you set them up for a lifetime of issues. Whenever they send an email or a letter, people are going to question who they are – what they look like – what gender they should be looking for at the interview etc.

    Do yourself and your child a favor and give your boys MASCULINE names. Jayden, Adrian, Hayden are metrosexual names that sound like women. Do your sons a favor.

    Also, enough with the stupid spellings – trying to be cute. Brian is not spelled Bryan. Jamie is not spelled Jaime. James is not spelled Jaymes. Give your kids a break…man.

  14. I’m a teacher, and basically any names which are not spelt correctly or in the traditional way are percieved as “common” ie. for Chavs in school.
    If you want your child to be taken seriously by his / her teachers in school, don’t call him “Zacuri” or her “Tiffeny”.
    Spelling is important and it says a lot about you.

  15. first i am #82. woot.
    Second I think different spellings are cute. I mean i would never name any child Tiffany in the first place (no offense, but it isnt that cute, and it was my dogs name). But I have a daughter already, named Rhianna (Ree-ana), or Anna. And if we have a boy I am naming him Jakob, and calling him Jak. I think that is so much cuter. Its a little bit of a twist on a normal name, without naming my kid apple or peanut or something.
    And I also think that unisex names can be cute, but more for girls. Like Logan is such a cute girls name, so is Ryan.

  16. i am goin in to be induced at midnight and im having a girl and this is what her name is goin to be.

  17. Im having a girl in two monthsand Im naming her Nevaeh Daniella.
    Mine name has never been too popular and I kinda like it that way =)

  18. I’m glad my name isn’t on this list that means im too exclusive and unique to be on that list, an by the way just in case you can’t say my name it’s [tah-lay-yah]

  19. if i have a girl its going to be either : Hannah , Lilly , Norah or Leighla..

    if i have a boy : Calum or Nathan

    :) x

  20. Why is everyone bragging that their names are on the list? I am disapointed mine is personally I like to be unique.

  21. i am pregnant with twin girls and i am due in february i still cant decide on names out of these 5 which two are best?:
    Caitlin Faith
    Brielle Grace
    Alyson Hope
    Savonnah Jade
    Liliana Raine

  22. Why isn’t Anne there? It’s popular and nice…. if i have a girl I’ll name mine Ava, Emma, Alyssa, or Ella and if i have a boy I’ll name mines Ryan, Aaron, or Christian..
