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...
Even though I love Oliver, I'd go with Jacob. Oliver Roman unfortunately sounds like Oliver Omen to me.
For some reason I immediately thought of Samuel Roman, but perhaps...
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,...
I'm in the UK and I know one- he's 18. His name was fairly odd until a few years ago. I'd say Arthur is quite trendy (see the popularity curve here) but in a good way. I much prefer the vintage...
Yep, what sorceress said basically. Whenever a name page is viewed, whether via this site itself or when the names come up in search engines and link back here, they tally up. For example, if I...
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.
