I want to name my kid Nameberry.  Ironically, of course.

They managed to beat all of these?

The article only says that Katniss and Finn (which, in full disclosure, is the name of 2 of my nephews) were
the most searched for names on the Nameberry website, which I'm sure did not pay for any product
placement on the Boise Weekly website.

So there is some hope that this will not come to pass.

Two of your nephews are named "Katniss and Finn"?

Katniss is a good cat name, and will be the name of my next one. But naming your girl child something that will be perverted into Katpiss at some point is just plain cruel.

I do like Finn, though. Used sparingly.

I just rename other people's kids. If you call a kid by any name long enough, it sticks.

FTA: "The authors said 2012 parents-to-be sought out quirky, traditional names for girls, while choices for boys' names leaned more toward Old Testament, Scandanavian or ancient Roman references."

If this describes you, please kill yourself.

Well after seeing Toddler's & Tiaras for the first time while at my ex-girlfriend's place for xmas, I predict that every female in the state of Texas will be named 'Hailey' by 2050.

Stealing names from NES games and Dragonball, huh?

DNRTA...

But I still have stuff to say... I think the single dumbest trend in baby names is using nouns like, Apple, or tree, or rainbowm or Prince. It's almost as bad as naming kids after places like, Paris, or Manhatten, or Florida, or Moon.

Hey, now; Ephraim Zebulun is a perfectly acceptable name.

This is just a search result report from a baby name website, not the statistics from birth certificate registrations or whatever. It's just what people look up when they are curious or bored. Mostly whistful single women probably.

You've completely and utterly failed at life if you give your child some obscure Celtic name because of your "Celtic" heritage (in other words, because your great-grandmother [whom you never met] was born in Ireland, but you've never actually been there or know anything about the culture except for what you've seen on TV). You're not fooling anyone, and just embarrassing yourself.

We went with Rebecca. Without doubt some 'tard named Shelby-Dakota will make fun of her for it.

At least they have their stripper names already in place!

Why? Old names are old because they're always popular. Or have deep meaning culturally.

Also those with 1/128th native American calling their kids anything other than Indian Joe or Indian Steve.

They don't have the same first names as my generation. Therefore, they will grow up to be strippers. All of them.

It's not that weird of a name -- you've never known a Rudy? I wouldn't use the name because eff Notre Dame, but it's not like Jayden or some other terrible made-up garbage.

My great grandfather was Ephraim Mannassah O***** and was of Norwegian parentage. *shrug* Least it was a different name.

My mom, being Norwegian and all, could have named me some pretty horrific stuff that would have singled me out forever for teasing, even here in California. I can't imagine going through life as a "Reginleif" or a "Nidbjorg". Thankfully, she gave me a very traditional European name that is also quite common in the US as well (mostly among old ladies, but that's cool). I'll have to buy her just a tiny little something nice as a "thank you for not being a douchebag parent when naming me" when I'm out shopping with my sis later today.

Annnnd there it is.

"did you know this child is a female and thus there is a sex joke to make? oh she is an infant? that's fine, her parents gave her a name i dislike! "

Because most people searching names on the site will just be wanting the name history, origin, and meaning. They won't actually be naming kids that shiat.
