Savannah Leigh and the other named her daughter Belle Marie, and I just had to roll my eyes. Sometimes you just want to say, "Really? That was the most creative you could be?" but of course you smile and nod and declare what a lovely name it is.
I totally surprised my sister earlier this week when she was mentioning names for her next child, and at one name I said something like "Oh I like that because then all their names would have the same meaning"...and then I had to try to explain why I randomly knew the meanings of all of those names.
Also, I'd add: You know you're a name-nerd when you cross something off your list before it becomes popular because you know it will soon skyrocket....For me, Hazel and August/Augustus are semi-crossed off of my list because The Fault in Our Stars (which features both names) is going to be made into a movie. I anticipate the movie doing well, so I think we'll start to see more Hazels, Augusts, Augustuses, and possibly even Gus.

I totally get the above posters on the name meaning thing! Or knowing the origins of a bunch of random names. Or, also, wanting to know everyone's middle names...Olivia, 15. Hobby writer, music geek and daydreamer extraordinaire.

LOL, the only reason I read my hometown newspaper is to search the obituaries for old names and look through the birth announcements see what local people are naming their babies.

I once explained the history of surnames in western Europe to my biology class. It amazed me how many people didn't know what it meant to have an occupational or patronymic surname...

Another one from me:
I spend a lot of my time on name blogs even during class I was discussing it with my friend in homeroom and I have brought it up with another friend. Thankfully they didn't think I was crazy.
