    Where does the name Laura stand these days? Where do you think it is headed?

    It's #280, but I think it is--or if not, should be--going up, with the revival of the classic names. And why not? It's positively lovely. Although, it's conceivable that I might just be biased, since my best friend's name is pretty darn close to that... Still, I love it!
    If I had a baby today, I'd name him or her…
    Benjamin Lucas "Benji" or Susanna Risa "Sunny"

    Laura is a classic name that is pretty yet sturdy to me. I've heard the name in my age group, which makes me think it had a peak in popularity in the mid to late 1980s. I have a feeling it was also quite popular in the late 1800s. I haven't heard it nearly as much on youngsters these days. So with that in mind I'd say it's an established but not overly common name, and I think it's lovely.

    It'll probably slowly creep upwards, but then fall again.

    Laura is and always will be a classic name.

    She's not going anywhere .

    My understanding is that she's always been, and always will be, at the top of the top 1,000 most popular names in the United States.

    A classic pairing I especially like for you:

    Lucy {and} Alice

    I think Laura’s headed lower but that’s not a bad thing. It’ll come back. It’s classic and pretty. It was overused in my generation and yet I still like it so that’s saying something.
