Having fun going through my class lists
I just realized that I have access to full class lists for my college classes - some of which have 200+ students - so I'm currently having fun going through the names. Thought I would post some of the standouts here. There are no genders listed, so your guess is as good as mine on some of the unisex names.
Kolawole - beautiful Nigerian last name as well
Charlotte - she has a beautiful French last name
Elliot and David - these guys sit next to me, they're twins and I really like the names together
Brighid - with very Irish last name
ETA: Oh! One of the TAs in my history class is named Jonas. He suits his name extremely well.
Anyone else have interesting names from their classes to share?

I'm not in school anymore either, and my daughter is too young to be in school, but I spent her entire naptime reading the names in the back of our new church directory that came in the mail today. It lists the names of entire families, not just the adults. Seeing the sibsets was fun.
There weren't that many stand-outs, to be honest. Lots of traditional names. Some "trendy" misspellings. Some really weird sibsets. Quite a few sibsets with matching first initials - I don't really understand why people do that. I discovered Claire is one of the most common names for little girls at our church, so I'm not sure if I'm going to add Clare to our list after all. There is actually another child named Maura whose family attends our church, which surprised me. And lots of other Kathryns, so I don't feel so weird about my Y. There were a number of names I couldn't even begin to pronounce, but our church is rather large and ethnically diverse, so I suppose that's to be expected. The only name that truly shocked me was...Madonna. I mean, I'm sure the parents chose it for the best possible reason, but I just think it's too much.
