I'm from Texas (but did my undergrad at a small, conservative Christian university in Tennessee). Because a lot of the people I know that are having babies are conservative evangelicals, I come across lots of "unusual" biblical names that aren't actually so unusual, because they've suddenly become trendy among our friend group. So names like Asher, Noah, Elijah, Gideon, etc. For girls it's all the top ten names - every other baby is Olivia, Sophia, or Emma.
Laura & Derek
Adele/a - Camille/a - Eleanor - Evangeline - Margaret - Selene
Arthur - Clark - Gabriel - Graham - Locke/Lachlan - Shepherd
Andromeda - Lúthien - Vesper - Zephyr

Old Testament names! I mean, I get that they are great people to have for namesakes, but I can't understand why people still continue to name their daughters Sarah here when there are like 200 in a small town. Not to mention Leah, Rachel, and Rebekah/Rebecca. As for boys, Jackson, Caleb, Elijah, and Ethan are really getting to be too much.

There are lots of yooneek namers around here. As I was waiting at the hospital for my niece to be born (for 13 hours!) I amused myself by reading all the names on the wall by the nursery.
Chloe/Khloee ect. dominated the board. The one that gave me the biggest sigh was Blahkleighe.
Then we had the odd word names like Riot and Ryot (huge eye roll). There was also Rowdy and Rune and even Romper. R's are trendy I guess.
Then there were the 35 Cooper's and then the new Cooper that was born that day. Why?
And how could I forget Egypxt. Not Egypt. Egypxt. What is that?
