The average woman in the US has 2.1 kids, and the number of posters here claiming to have 5-6 kids has always astonished me. That said, a person actually naming a 4th, 5th, or 6th kid would probably be a bit more desperate for suggestions, and therefore more likely to consult Nameberry. It might be more difficult to get consistent base data, since not all birth announcements contain siblings' names.
    I actually do have 5 kiddos and really wasn't interested in "names" as a hobby until after my 4th was born. I felt more angst choosing over her name and after she was born I still wasn't sure if we had picked the right one and so I think it set me to agonizing over future names. Of course we didn't have high speed internet till then either so perhaps that started the fascination with naming boards.

    As for the disproportionate number of girls, I will say that I barely post in the boys forum. I simply don't find any of my favorites discussed. Most threads have leading contenders that I really don't care for so I don't tend to post. The girls forums on the other hand tend to have many more names that I like discussed. Perhaps this is only my personal experience but if we have another little girl to name I'll probably need about 1000 posts while if it's a boy I doubt I'll have many at all.

    The fakes are pretty easy to spot, but it is nice to see the actually math/stats laid out. Thanks blade!

    As for me? I admit that I am a young college student who is childless/not pregnant, but I DO love names, love discussing them, and I admit that I fantasize about my future children (I plan on having four). If that makes me "weird", then so be it, but at least I'm not faking a pregnancy, miscarriage, etc.

    If I ever do wish to fake a birth announcement, now I know I have to have normal pregnancy, give birth to a single boy, with a name that's trending on Nameberry. Thanks for the advice!

    I think my Ivan may have been listed in both Babyberry reports and I'm not sure how to have him removed from the second. I can't find a birth announcement for an Ivan Eli besides mine. Does anyone know how to have the duplicate removed, or does it just not matter that much at this point?
