Chad sent me an email today with a link to a local article about last year’s most popular baby names. I know most of the names already, of course, since I’ve been spending lots of time with babies born last year. The whole article can be read here.

Chad was relieved that the name “Christian” wasn’t on the top ten list. But I did a little more investigating and it turns out that “Christian” was #22 in 2007, which is still pretty popular – right inbetween “Tyler” and “Jonathan,” or the male equivalent to “Brianna.” The name “Aiden” was #27. You can see the official social security list here.

Addendum:

Bella saw this post and commented that this year’s names were not all that populat as far as she could see. I told her to check the year of her birth (1993) and she was amazed. Basically a laundry list of all the girls she knows…
