    I agree, I know quite a few Lindsays (various spellings), Kayla's, Cameron's and Jimmy's and I never thought their names were childish.

    I do think a lot of nicknames don't age well, but that's why I'm a huge fan of giving the child a longer name and using the nickname when they're young and then letting them change it when they see fit.

    It's not so much that I know children with the names, I know young adults. None of whom are older than 23, so with the ones you quoted back to me...I can only imagine them being fairly young. But I suppose it depends on where you live, as to the age range attached to specific names.

    I'm a Melissa, and I'm WAY older than 23! Along with Amy, Melissa was a hip name in the late 60's where I grew up in Texas. Come to think of it, I'm named after a great-grandmother whose father was a Confederate cavalryman, so it's a pretty old name. But anyway, this question of names that don't age well made me laugh because I was trying to imagine a little kid saying, "Grandma Brandi? Can I have a cookie?" LOL!
