The J names had their day: Jennifer, Jason, Jessica. Then K was up, and we had lots of Kevins and Kaylas, Kaitlyns and Kyles.

Linda wrote about the delicious La-La names, from Lola to Lila to Lily, that are newly popular. And certainly, the most visible of the L names right now are these Double L names.
(A side note here: DELILAH and TALLULAH may not have an L in first place but are part of this same Double L trend.)

THE LOU NAMES
A pan-European trend that seems finally to be reaching the U.S., the Lou names are hugely popular in Great Britain and the Continent for girls as well as boys. Examples:
LOU and LILOU – Both huge in France, Lou is one of the daughters of the iconic Jane Birkin and Lilou is the Occitan (a dialect of Provence) version of Lily.
