Pocket Ninja: That's a fascinating article, and I'm glad they didn't succumb to the temptation of simply posting the names in question on the first page. It was important that they establish the basic situation, set the scene, so to speak. See, so many journalists and writers these days just have this desperate urgency about their writing. They just want to get to the point and provide information andstuff like that. But, see, Parenting knows you don't want that. Sadly, I could tell upon beginning the third paragraph that this article was of too lofty a prose for my feeble mind, that I was not worthy of the secret gems, the knowledge, that would be revealed to me within. I can only hope, though, that as one progressed further into the rich delta of its later sentences, one discovered that, happily, each name was given its very own page. I will trust that such was so.
erveek: I saw the name Silas on the list and was surprised because I always considered Silas to be an awful name. On the other hand, I'd name a kid Silas before Aiden or anything that rhymes with Aiden."Aiden - Meaning: Diagnosis of fashionable mental disorder inevitable, whether present in patient or not."
Warthog: I clicked through that whole stupid slide show just to make sure my two snowflakes' names were NOT there. If I came to find out that I gave them trendy names, I'd have to shoot myself. Fortunately the names Reinhold and Helga seem not to be taking off.
A couple months ago, I was at a birthday party held in a "Tumble and Cheer" school.These were some of the names on the wall:
Prank Monkey: For some reason Parenting is blocked at work. WTF? But I will guess the most popular names.
whizbangthedirtfarmer: We briefly considered Havelock for my son's name. I thought it sounded pretty cool.
Sybarite: OliverThe problem with that name is that I can only hear it in Eva Gabor's accent.
busy chillin': whizbangthedirtfarmer: We briefly considered Havelock for my son's name. I thought it sounded pretty cool.His middle name could be "Willtravel"
CygnusDarius: Where's Nicky and Vinnie and Tommy?.
Onkel Buck: Still no Lunesta, Boniva or Valtrexia I see. Im going to name my son Completrius and he will be and NFL reciever

wambu: So are stripper and slut names becoming less popular? Where will these girls come from in the future? "Clara" will never be thought of as a naughty, naughty girl.
