Elliot becomes Olivia.

Isabella becomes Matthew

Sophia becomes Connor

and for some reason Michael becomes...uh...Michael  (gotta be a typo...in an article about typos)

It's a bad chart. It's not showing that 'Elliot' changes to 'Olivia' it's that 'Olivia' is one of the most commonly adopted names overall.

Never met a Chole.
It sounds derogatory, as in, "what a frickin' Chole".

"Chole" sounds like something delicious one would order in a Mexican or Indian restaurant.

Let's just say that his mother has none of that information but rather chose to be Kre8iv. The conversation was literally that she didn't want to use the same old Michael that everyone else has. She's about as white bread, C-scholar as they come.

Karen now from 40,000 girls born in both 1956 and 1957 to under 900 last year.  Now that's a powerful meme slaughter of a name, although Linda is about as big a drop.

I have to enter names into a database all day long.

The number of times I have to stop and wonder if the parents were trying to be "unique," or if they were just box of rocks dumb and really thought you spell it "Coadie" is astonishing.

csb: I know a woman who's name used to be Tiffany. I want to ask her if she changed it because "Tiffany" is the name of the mean girl we're supposed to hate in every teen movie ever made or if she changed it to make a clean break from her former life. Pretty sure she's not hiding from anyone because she's open enough about her past to make it easy to find her former name.

csb2: My wife also changed her name. She's always gone by here middle name, which sounds like a boy's name, rather than her actual first name, which also sounds like a boy's name. It makes for much less confusion to officially change it so she only has one boy's name to explain away.

That name will definitely be one of the most-changed ones coming up in a few years, when those unfortunate young women are old enough. Probably a lot of Kymryns and McKeighlees, too. It's like some parents think the name will only apply to a baby and not to a grown adult.

I have a family member that changed her name to Anastasia.

Nobody in the family quite understands why, and I dont think any of us call her by that.
Her reasoning was that her given name - Stacy - is a diminutive of Anastasia, so she changed it to the proper name.

Issac? But I'm a big fan of his work.
