    I hate "That name just seems too trendy"

    1. Names that are considered "trendy" on Nameberry are most of the time names that I've never heard on a real life kid.

    2. "Trendy" names are "trendy" for a reason, don't you think? They are being used much more because there is something likeable about the name. Is it so bad that a lot of people find the name beautiful? Not necessarily. Although little Kinley may be Kinley H. in her kindergarten class, she'll never get any grief about her name, and that's a nice perk of a trendy name.

    Callen Archer is our boy name, Emmeline Sage is our girl name.

    Fingers crossed that one day he'll agree to Holden, Beckett, Violet, and Maven.

    Low class and stripper name excuses as someone with a "low class stripper name" being middle class and my mum works with children I don't think it's fair to say that all Ebony's are low class (normally it's also a black name which I find really bad) . Most low class people don't get low class names, I know two middle class Lakeisha's
    Also I can't imagine a grandma with that name well one day there will be granddad Kayden's and grandma Nevaeh's and I will be Nana Ebony in 60 years time.

    'can you picture a doctor with a name that cute?!"

    Well, considering all of my past doctors have been Dr. *insert first initial and surname here* , yes? I don't even know my past doctors given names, nor do I care to be honest. A doctor who's first name is Millie could easily be more qualified than a doctor named Amelia or Millicent. I can't even begin to fathom looking down at a doctor over their name.

    I've gotten a few comments about how Haley is a stripper's name, or it's a name that'll end up all over Jerry Springer one day (my sister Mikayla has gotten the same), it's gotten ridiculous. My name's trashy? Ok cool, but yanno what? Honey Boo Boo's family isn't exactly high society, but Alana, Anna, Lauren/Lauryn, June and Jessica all seem to be regarded much higher than Haley and Mikayla.

    That infuriates me too.

    My GP's first name is legitimately Daisy... I also know of a pharmacist named Zelie, and our Vet's name is Ike, not short for anything. Although I also see a double standard here between female/males, nobody would ever question whether a male Charlie could get a medical (or law or whatever) degree, but a female Charlie? No way. Call her Charlotte, at least. Hah.
    It's ridiculous.

    And do these people not even contemplate that statistically, a huge number of doctors in 25 years will have names like Kyson and Mckailee? They're used by middle/upper class Americans all the time - yet Poppy or Maisie are too informal for that sort of environment? Yeah, super logical.
