ok so I don't usually post on this thread, but I read the last comment by alzora and decided to answer. I don't know exactly how old you are, but a lot of people in their early to mid to even late 20's don't necessarily know a lot of little kids. (especially in America I think. Like you, I live in Northeastern USA. ) We tend to herd people off by age. so maybe you have a friend who works in a daycare or has a few nephews and nieces, but most of my 20 something friends don't know too many little kids. That's a question better asked on Nameberry. You'll really get a response if you start a new thread. If it helps I know a few people who had babies, no Gabriel among them. I also think Gabriel was not common in our generation, so I don't know any older Gabriels.
Just trying to be helpful.

@alzora - I know two boys named Gabriel. One is about 9 and one is 13. And since I don't have kids yet, obviously I don't really interact with that many parents, but from all my family friends/cousins/church friends etc, none of them have babies named Gabriel.
So just a quick update from me...I've been pretty stressed out the past month and sort of stayed away from this thread. I'm just starting my fertile time for the month and doing my best to enjoy it. I hope for lots of BFPs for everyone! I'm just getting sick of all the waiting, wondering, planning...and how every month it just starts all over again. Anyway, good luck to all!Sylvie & Hazel & Nora & Alice & SophieHenry & Rowan & Milo & Oliver & Ezra

Thanks for all the Gabriel info! @Emily, I appreciate the tip about starting a Gabriel thread in the name section. Believe it or not, that never crossed my mind. I may do that, but I am beginning to get the vibes that, as @Rowangreeneyes said, Gabriel may be popular among very specific demographics. The hippie/alternative crowd might use it a lot, but also, I'm from a very religious area--my hometown is entirely Protestant, and the surrounding valley is nearly entirely Catholic--so maybe the name is popular around here because there are so many church-going Christians of different stripes.
@Rachel, I'm sorry to hear that you've had a rough month. I can relate to that, and I'll be honest--pulling away from this thread for a bit really did give me a much-needed reprieve. I ADORE every single person in this thread and the undying support, but I think we all understand that need for the occasional break from all things TTC-related. That's part of why I started our Facebook group--so that I could stay in touch with my friends from here in an environment that isn't always focused on TTC. I hope this cycle is your long-awaited positive cycle!
