    All of these names could have come straight from my high school rosters. Hubs and I have a bear of a time in any name discussion because it seems like everything he picks (Zach, Colton and Hannah were the most recent) give me immediate shivers of revulsion as I associate them with less-than-delightful students...

    I do like the sound Keira, but had know idea it was so popular. Glad I went with Audrey for my 18 month old. Sometimes I laugh when I look at my baby list (not sure how some names got on there other than pregnancy brain).
