    Most popular names for Nameberryite's kids

    Nobody (as far as I know) has done this on here, so I'm starting a thread where we can keep track on what our children's names are (right now I don't have any to contribute though). In the post below I will keep a running count of what names are used by our members and how many, as well as a list of the most popular ones for each gender. Middle name stats are mentioned in post #138 (the eighth post on page #14, if the standard 10 posts per page are displayed).

    Each member is welcome to post their kid's names (first name as well as middle name(s) if you want to, but not the last name for security purposes). If the gender is not immediately apparent please be sure and mention that as well. It would be helpful to also post the year that the child was born, so we can gauge how the name fits into the trends of the time (e.g. Ashley 20 years ago was in a different fashion state than it is now). If the birth is a twinset or higher-order multiples also indicate that. Unless you've been a location-hopper at the international level you might also mention the general geographic area that you live in (especially if you're outside of the U.S.), so we can also gauge how the name fits into regional trends.

    This list is intended to compile a list of those children that (at least theoretically) we had a role in naming, so stepchildren won't be included in the stats. Do include adopted children though.

    Re: Most popular names for Nameberryite's kids

    Here's my running list of stats (current as of post #363, which is by louisamae13). Names below are mentioned in order of number of uses by our members from most to least popular (with the number indicated if it's two or more); for names used the same number of times they're in alphabetical order. Like the SSA list each spelling will be counted separately; if you'd like to combine the spellings yourself you can do so.

    Re: Most popular names for Nameberryite's kids

    My kids:
    Sterling Dylan--11
    Josiah Christopher--7
    Delaney Faith--5
    Brielle Natalia--2
    Kingston Marcus--2

    My husband and I tried to choose names for our children that were definitely heard of, but not too popular where we live. I think we accomplished that with all our kids. Another thing that was important to us was to not to have any of our kids have a name that started with the same letter, and initials couldn't be the same in any way. We also did not want any of the names to end in the same sound. I really, really like the name Josiah, it's probably my favorite, because it's fresh, Biblical, and spunky. I only started liking it about two years before Sterling was born, and I swore if I had another son, Josiah would be his name. I have only met two Josiahs in my life, and they are both wonderful people. Josiah is such a great name and it suits my son perfectly!!! :)

    Re: Most popular names for Nameberryite's kids

    Still TTC, secretly hoping for 2 girls 1 boy and have their names already chosen. Probably not counted in the poll, but figured I'd share :D

    Daphne Amelia Grace
    Penelope Cambria Belle nn Poppy
    Alexander Gabriel Grey nn Lex, although DH wants Xander (preferred not to have 2 G's, but Gabriel is for my sister Gabrielle and DH and I both LOVE Grey)
