emily is out, emma is in...

After 12 years standing at number 1, Emily finally drops the ranks to number 14.

It's so funny how the trends change, because neither Jessica or Jennifer make the list...and boy were those popular names when I was growing up.

Notice: Logan is 9th as a boys name, yet it doesn't even make the top 100 as a girls name. That's probably why I get mail addressed to Mr. Logan all the time. and why some people assume I'm the boy. It makes for some funny times.

Where does your name fall??

This is why I'm so glad we call our girl by her middle name. WHY does her first name have to be so popular? She was born before the whole Friends thing!

i'm pretending mine isn't on there either....because it's definitely spelled wrong at #9 =)

Celes said...

We all know my name isn't on there. Celestine was the most popular back in the early 1900s and even then it wasn't even all that popular. I say, let's bring it back! Or we could introduce Celes by itself so people will stop spelling my name wrong!
