    tori you crack me up there is soooo many out there……more tori’s e zac’s any way I disagree I think simple names are good. not like really common but not really weird names that people would have to as you what it is to common names: Anna , Mary, tiffany jessica tom, Billy harry mak weird names are just big names that people may mash a few names into one the perfect name would a common name from back then like leah or luke

  • BS

    This list is made up non sense. The official social security list of names is different!

    One of my favorite older names, was my GGGrandma’s name, was Cora. I always loved that name and said if I ever had a girl I would name her that but I was in an accident in 1988 at 22 I was pregnant and lost the baby and was told I could have no more. I do not have any kids but I guess I could name my next kitty Cora. 🙂 Blessed be.

    I would kill for 13%, around here in the Baltimore/DC metro area it is much more like 60-70%. I long for the days when I could look out my window and not see a “sea” of them. When the school buses drop-off here in my hood it is GD ridiculous…..out of 30-35 kids only 3-4 are white, a dozen of Asians & Indians then the rest are black! Nothing like paying $400,000 on a home and have to keep your doors bolted shut, hear gun-shots ocassionally, home invasions & break-ins are a daily occurrence here in the new hood. The other home owners are fleeing this ghetto daily, most taking a loss on their properties just to get the hell out.

    Shame on you!

    Considering the site is geared towards mothers of color…

  • umama

    Of course they are gonna show a black baby in the lead. 13% of the population are once again being shoved down our throats.

  • HaHaHa

    I know about 50 toris,you aren’t special.

  • Ha

    I’m glad to see old traditional names making a comeback,sasquanisha and ieasha aren’t names,ni66ers have a serious problem coming up with names.

  • I’ve always loved this name 😉

  • That’s my Name

  • Crumpet

    I don’t understand blogs that list a “ten things” and then make me turn 10 screens on my smartphone. Makes content lag and seems boring. Fix? An option to ‘show as single page’. Thanks mommy blowers.

  • sball124

    Love Ethan and Haley mckenzie.

  • Christina

    I’m surprised by some of these. I didn’t know Haddie was popular. I was surprised by William and Catherine (my dads first name and my middle name) until I remembered the Prince and Princess. Shocked but glad to not see Jayden. I know at least 8 Jaydens age 1-3.

  • Tori Eads

    AgREED! My name is Tori, and I’ve always appreciated my parents for that. My brother’s name is Zac, on the other hand… poor bro.

  • Daniel

    haha”no one”….are your kids names that different…..let me guess one’s name is ketchup and the other salt?

  • d_et_p

    I don’t understand why people want to name their child a popular or trendy name….So they can be “Emma P.” and “Emma G.” in class at school? There were multiple “Ryan’s” and “Jennifer’s” in my generation—why would someone want their kid to share their name? No one ever shared my name or (hopefully will share) my kids’ names—something I thought carefully about and planned that way.
