Facebook stalking names
I decided to road-test my favorite names by simply typing them into facebook's search function and seeing what kind of people bear them. Seems better than asking for selective impressions of the names in general. Obviously there is a small snag in this plan, in that most people on facebook are 15-35 and therefore a generation removed from a potential baby, but it was absolutely fascinating. Some stereotypes/ pre-conceived notions were positively confirmed, some negatively dispelled. I highly recommend it!Blade, MD

LOL! I've totally done this for ages! But for me, I'm usually not checking for stereotypes so much as I am checking just to see if my favorite names are actually used by people out there anywhere. I'm always delighted when I find that no Facebook user has the name. But I totally have done the stereotype-check too, on some more recognized names. I've also searched my favorite names on Google Images, which has given me a totally different sampling than the Facebook search.

I do this, too. Usually, I'm pleasantly surprised by the people that show up in the searches. A few times though, a few people have put me off of a name.The Future Littles:
