  1. I have 2 boys: Andrew Nicklaus & William Davis. I think boys should have masculine names! I like the following:
    Alissa Brookelyn
    Baylor Grace
    Anna Morgan
    Carley Ann
    Mari Caylan
    Grant Matthew
    Blakely Grahm
    Jackson Claye

  2. WHAT????? AVA is MY name, now people are abusing it! It is not even supposed to be in the top 1000! I am going to cry. This is wrong. PLEASE DONT NAME YOUR KID AVA

  3. My name isn’t anywhere up there at all… but I like that about it. It’s unique. I look at these lists because I want to make sure that my kids’ names are as unique as mine. Sure there are other’s in the world with my name.. I’ve met a couple.. but the point is, it’s rare to find them. Those names on the list are great but, personally, I would like to have the beauty, complication and unique-ness :-) of the names of my children to directly reflect that of themselves

  4. Wow everyone…You all need to chill out…
    It’s just names…Calm down already, jeeze. It’s not that hard…
    Anyways, the names Savannah and Noah are adorable! :)

  5. Well…the names Sarah and Joshua are also adorable…It’s such a hard pick…:/
    I shouldn’t be worrying about this already, but I’m really looking forward to have kids! :D
    My boyfriend doesn’t want any kids though…:( I’m going to try to convince him somehow…

  6. I hate how many Heathers there are in the world…used to be in the top names in the 70s and 80s. But my middle name (Christine) ROCKS. I like the spelling Crystene.

    Names I like that I want to pick from for my future kids:
    Anastasia Sylvia Grace (Stacia)
    Alexandra Honor Faith (Honor)
    Adelaide Sonnet Crystene (Laidey)
    Ariel Cadence Merit (Ariel)
    Aledra Lorelai Marie (Aledra)

    Micah Tyler (Micah)
    Christopher Aidan Lee (Cal –acronyms are awesome!)
    Chandler Titus (Chandler)
    Timothy Logan (Logan)
    Declan Joseph (Declan)

    Tell me what you think!

    (Annnnnd #41, Aurora Rain rocks…maybe try Rhaine or Rayne though?)

  7. I don’t get it really. It doesn’t matter how you spell it or say it. It is up to the parents choice on there kids name. If they like they like it. Like one of my cousins name is Porter. I like it it stands out of the crowd and it is unique. SO STOP BEING MEAN IT IS THE PARENTS CHOICE AND NOT YOURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. I would like to say to everyone that reads this that just cause these names are popular to some people doesnt mean it has to appeal to you. I have son that is 3 1/2 and his name wasnt mentioned once on there. Well im totally happy with that for the fact that he’ll not be sharing the same name as everyone else….

  9. um i think its kind of silly that u guys are obsessing over this i think it is very interestin if your namee isnt on the list becasue it makes u uniqe

  10. errr your name is princess yours definatly wont ever be on the list its not even a name get a life and a better name

  11. brooklynn quinn
    jocelynn hope
    Meghan lynn
    autumn lee

    jace or jase anthony
    blake nicholos
    knox alexander
    colby ryan

  12. My absolute favorite all time name is margaues
    (prounounced MAR-GO) i love it i think it will be popular soon!!!

  13. My husband and I are having our first child soon. We really like Jackson because it’s my husband’s family name but what in the world do you put with it. Jackon ____ or ____Jackson??

  14. Let your kid be unique. Don’t pick a name on the top 100 list. Take it from someone who knows…my name is number 1, and has been number 1 for years. Don’t do that to your kid. It gets annoying knowing hundreds of people with your name.

  15. hey Carly this is for you i dont really like the name joel either i like the name aiden by the way my name not really aiden and for all u parents crying on the enternet about how yo childes name not on there toffen up u babies it gets anoing

  16. omg why use all arguing over names iot dont matter whos 1st or lst its ure name thts all tht matters at least u have a name gd sake use r actin like blimin 2 year old mann shut the heck up

    some girl names *


    boys *


  17. i think that the name Niamh is beautiful and the way it is spelt is different, it’s very popular nowdays and i am very pleased to have called my baby daughter such a beautiful name.
    i am also pregnant with twins at the moment and i am going to call them Bradley and Cassidy Eva

  18. My husband and I were thinking of what we could name our baby boy but I cannot think of what sounds good with Micah as the middle name? Trying to fit a cute first name it there that works? Any ideas?

  19. My name is Emmalie. It is pronounced like ‘Emily’ so I’m pretty sure it still count as number 1. That’s sucky, I know a TON of Emilys and Emmas

  20. My name is ellie but is spelt like elly i am unique (well maybe not) actually my full name is elly rose

    woooop!1 whooop!!

    i dont care where my name is on this stupid list anyway its a LISY hellloooo to care if your name is on there is soooo sad!!!

  21. My name is definitely not going to be up there. it’s definitely a name people have to take a double look. it’s unique suckaaaaz.

  22. Every state has a Department of Vital Records where all births are reported. That’s how they get the names. I work for one and see these same names day after day. The parents that come up with strange spellings for the kid are only causing problems for them down the road. They’ll have to spell out their name for everyone the rest of their lives, how annoying.
