    Your favorite baby name that is too popular to use?

    What is your favorite baby name that is too popular to actually use? This is the name you would use in a heartbeat if it were ranked outside of the top 500 names.

    Mine:
    Jackson for boy
    Emily for girl

    I don't know about the top 500, I'm not that picky, but I really like the name Aiden. I would probably use it if every kid I met wasn't named Aiden or -aiden.

    I am actually okay with using names I love, even if they are in the top 100. My favorite name is Zoe, as it is a family name, and it is at rank 30. The names that I would use if they weren't so popular (or if I didn't hear them so much) are: Sophia (rank 1, such a shame), Noah (rank 4), Ethan (rank 3), & Benjamin (rank 16).
    I actually have a few names that are above the top 20 on my list that I would use because I love them so much, including: Chloe (rank 11, though if I met a ton I could be swayed), James (rank 14, my dad's name), Joshua (rank 17, has been one of my favorites for years), Andrew (rank 17, one of my favorites for years) & I just love Amelia (rank 23. I only know one, who spells it Emelia).
    I would use my favorite names unless they become so popular that they become boring, that's what happened with Sophia, Noah, Ethan, & Benjamin. It is what happens with most top 10 names.

    Ava !! My favourite name, but I hate how many I keep meeting.
    I Also started to love Isla, but now it seems like every other baby girl is an Isla !

    Isabelle. *Hands up* I'd love to stay away from popular names, but I really love this one. I'm far away from having kids though, so I'll just see latter.
