How Popular Is Too Popular?

How Popular Is Too Popular?

We spied this question in the forums and thought it was so good we’d ask the Nameberry community at large:

How popular is a name before it gets too popular for you?

Would you avoid the Top 10? The Top 100? The Top 1000?

Or maybe you’d happily choose the Number 1 name if you loved it enough. Or only want names that nobody else, literally, is using.

When it comes to baby names, how popular is too popular for you?
