I love Emily but it's been popular for ages and ages. It's pretty much always around. I guess maybe I could see not feeling that it's trendy so much as omnipresent, like Elizabeth or Katherine. It doesn't feel tied to a particular decade all that much to me because I know ones my age (30) my mom thinks its old-fashioned, and there are new ones born every day of the year.
But I do know someone who has two daughters under five named Isabella and Sophia who swears up and down she didn't want popular names, in fact picked Sophia for something obscure. I don't think there's anything wrong with loving popular names, I just wouldn't tell myself they were rare.

Some family friends just had a wee Emily. They said they wanted something not too common but well-known. Well, they got the well-known bit right.maxima gwen | marian louisa | maude amaryllis
