    Edward --> Ed --> Ted (the same way you also get Ned) --> Teddy. It's a little bit of a stretch but I've definitely seen worse!

    I don't like -leigh names either. At least Kayleigh is the legitimate spelling of the name here in the UK though.

    Really Nevaah not Nevaeh? It's not even Heaven spelt backwards anymore!

    Ned, Nan, and the like came from "mine Ed" and "mine Anne," which turned into Ned, Nan, etc.

    Gosh, I'm gonna have to dig up my kindergarten class picture now.

    I can't see much difference either, but then I'm not American so perhaps that's why!

    Times have definitely changed!
    Other than Kevin and Christopher, I don't think I would be that surprised to see this lot in a preschool today! I love Sarah and Katie and Laura. Reminds me of little 90s girls in tartan dresses

    I live in a very rural area when there was/is very little 'migration', so most of the kids I went to preschool with (late 90s) ended up with me in sixth form, 15 years later!

    I remember: Daniel (Dan), Lily, Christopher (Chris), Perry, Luke, Jacob (Jake), Jessica, Michael (Mike) Jimmy, Amy, Aqua, Jodie (x2), Jack (x2), Jennifer (Jenny), Lauren, Danielle, Holly, Lucy, Megan, Francesca (Frankie), Shannon, Joshua, Leah, Sasha and Bryony.

    Several 90s names there
    William ♠ Thomas ♠ Peter ♠ Henry ~ Rose ♠ Alice ♠ Ivy ♠ Lowenna
    Mowesi ~ Henwyn Kernewek ~ Mebyon
