You don't have to defend yourself! Using a popular name is not the heinous crime some make it out to be :) Personally, I don't think any name is "too" popular so I say go for it. Emily's a wonderful...

Never knew it had that association! I wouldn't consider it dated at all. Perhaps it is in its native Scotland but I had a quick peek at E&W birth records and looks as though its use was consistently...
I didn't even know it's considered a girl name. This spelling is 100% male to me and I'd always expect a 'Sidney' said aloud to be a boy. I don't know that it's a place name variant either- I believe...
Loving the Brownlee boys' one-two :) I hope the home nations carry on hauling the medals in- I love our Aussie cousins but I think it'd be great for someone else to top the medal table this year,...

I did something similar about a year ago so it'll be interesting to see if they end up looking similar! :)

Because some people are under the mistaken (and rather insulting) impression that everyone who uses such a name is only using it to fill the gap. And they can't have put any serious consideration...
I agree with Ren, Isabella really is lovely :) Perhaps Isabel/Isobel is a little less 'flowery' for your DH? Francesca, Anna, Julia, Zara, Eloise, Iris, Libby, Esther, Georgina, Lydia, Elise,...
Wow, this is old :) Ehhh it's 'dear' too. Seems 'darling' is what others are most familiar here with but most sites I've been on state either both or just 'dear'- BtN for example. It really doesn't...
I think Evelyn's totally fine in the middle spot. I still think of it as a unisex name myself, so I wouldn't bat an eyelid at it paired up with a boy's name first. Richard Evelyn is my favourite as...

Some interesting names in there. I like Zeb and Sol as nicknames and I like the clunk of Norbert and Columbus.
Most gender benders and misspellings can be chalked up as mistakes in a time when the...
Bryony makes me think of: Philippa, Gemma, Harriet, Georgina, Eleanor, Molly, Florence, Charlotte, Laura, Verity, Helena, Isabelle.
Other 'knee' enders: Hermione, Destiny, Penny, Jenny, Tiffany,...
Meh. Whilst I don't love having people say bad things about names I like, it doesn't bother me very much. I know they're not targeting me, my possible future kids or anyone's actual children – they...

There's a 50/50 split of likes/dislikes for me...
Edmund - lovely vintage choice
Ezra - I like how upbeat and fun it sounds
Elias - sweet
Emeric - Like. Reminds me of Harry Potter.
Darren is dated to me- likely someone born between 60s-80s. His siblings are probably Kevin, Jason, Tracey, Kirsty... names of that ilk. Can't say I've ever heard a Darren go by a nickname though....

I've had a bit of a crush on Otto recently. Maximilian used to be #3 on my boy list and though it barely features now, I still find it handsome.
I also quite like Bruno, Wilhelm, Benno, Torben,...

I do prefer having a comments section compared with what we had before. However, I agree that there are a select few who seem excessively negative and they need to cut back. I've no issue with...

Lots of zeros on your lists- goes to show that popular names aren't completely horrific. I volunteer with young kids and have yet to come across most of the top names. I don't know of any who've...
I really like George Edward :) Very handsome. I'm not so keen on Basil myself. What about a few more vintage/classics...
Yes, in the US. I was responding to the PP talking about 'British people', so I was looking at the England & Wales statistics.
Tbh, if I didn't know the middle names I would assume they were all boys, except maybe Skyler and Laine. The middles are much nicer imo.
I find it hard to see 'sad die' myself (this is the first I've even heard that mentioned), possibly because it's fairly common -as are loads of other -ie names nowadays- and the sounds are off. But...
I find it very hard to see Ellis on a girl tbh. It's #100 for boys where I live :)

Well it's a great start. There are some brilliant names in this thread :)
