    I definitely don't want a really popular name but it's hard to get the balance between a bit different and what the fuck? X

    Its interesting looking at things like this.
    Id feel physically sick if my babys unusual name became popular.
    You spend all this time picking out the perfect name.... i had a friend whos just had her baby who picked a ridiculously similar name to my daughters. I raised an eyebrow because i remembered how much she adored my babys name when i told her...and i mean it is very very close. But still, its not the same so i got over it. Hahaha!

    It's American too, so the UK ones would probably be slightly different.

    I have two friends with girls, eldest girl is 6, other friend's girl is 2.5 and they both called their babies Sophie!
    Also the one with the 6yr old has a 2yr old boy as well who she called Jacob, and when the friend with the younger Sophie was pregnant I asked her if she had names picked out and she said 'either Sophie or Jacob' lol. She didn't know at that point that my other friend had chosen those names for her kids too.

    I'm going completely 'out there' with my name choices :rolleyes::) I don't want to announce it til it's born though lol.

    There are several names that I've never heard one English person called!!

    When I saw an Australian list a while back that was quite different too, although not to this extent.

    My sons name is 3rd but I spell it differently, therefore it's not his name :lol: It's Jayden and I spell it like Jaiden.

    Hated all the girls names and practically all the boys names too. None of my names I've picked for bump are on there thankfully

    We have a list of a few names but are leaning towards Elsie at the minute, one reason being that it's not too popular- it's the only name we've chosen that's on that list haha! Ah well, it's American so not much use for popularity of names over here just yet. Xx

    I think the girls name we have chosen isn't as popular over here as it is in America, I don't Know anyone with the name. My friend said how popular it was and that she wouldn't call her baby a popular name and then chose Eva for her girl and I swear everyone I know has called there little girl Eva. But it is a pretty name. I don't think it really matters as long as you like the name to be honest. I love several of the boys names on that list but I wouldn't have referred to the list or any list to check what names were or were not on it to base my name choice on.
