    Emily a popular baby name?

    I was taking about names with my husband and he didn't know that Emily is and has been a popular baby name. I was stunned.

    LOL a lot of times parents assume that the names that were popular when they were kids are still popular today- not so, obviously!

    I would have thought having 5 kids he would have been a bit more familiar with current name trends. Of course last summer my son made friends with a boy named Asher and my husband was totally confused.

    This reminds me of talking with my mom. She's always so surprised when I tell her about names of students that I have (especially vintage comebacks). Names that seem totally normal and on trend (like Clara, Emma, Evelyn, Lily, Violet to name a few), get "That's such an old lady name" from her.

    I think you have to know a lot of little children or be a primary school teacher to know what's currently popular! I know two baby girls called Emily born in the last two months.

    I thought there weren't many Harriets around and three pop out recently and it's climbing the charts here in the UK.
