Do you wish your own name…..?

Do you wish your own name was more unusual…or more popular?

The general trend of taste in baby names these days is toward the unusual — many of us are looking for names that will help our children stand out in the crowd.

This is borne out by statistics, in the ever-growing number of sheer names in common use and the shrinking number of babies given the top names.

But how does this relate to your feelings about your own name? ย Do you wish you had a more unusual name yourself, and if so, why?

And if you have an unusual name, how do you feel about that — now, and when you were younger? ย Are you happy you have an unusual name or do you wish you had one that was more standard-issue?
