I recently met a 2-year old boy named Baker, which I was rather quite charmed by.
A bunch of people I know just had babies.. which is strange since I'm only 18 but anyway there's been:
Lucille nn Lucy
Oh and I nanny so I hear a lot of kids names that I watch and at the playground/pool:
Jasmine... this poor little girl's last name is Pink. It's one thing to give your daughter a disney princess name but Pink turns it into a stripper name instantly.
Milena nn Mimi
Went to a dance recital recently and to my horror they didn't print the names of the dancers on the program. It was honestly the thing i was most looking forward to, and was such a disappointment!
Instead, they had all the dancers' names printed on gold stars that were taped to the walls near the stage. I sat near the front, and the only ones i managed to see were: Sahtara (this was a girl about 17 who was later called up to introduce herself because it was like her 15th year dancing or something), Jaden, Joye (i saw her holding her star later and they called her Joy, though, so who knows why the e on the end), and then a bunch of Kylie/Miley/Kenzie/Kinley/Mc-whatsit/Brynley/etc in varying spellings.
Its been nearly a week and i still am disappointed that they didn't have the names printed on the program! I know i heard families cheering for other, weirder names, but i can't remember what the names were
I was clothes shopping yesterday and someone called the helpful saleslady Rafi. My curiosity was peaked so I asked her what her name was and she said Raffaella. I liked the name before but now I like it even more because she helped me pick out a lovely outfit for a family wedding I'm attending next month (yes, there are still helpful people working in stores :)).
