(Of course, as soon as it was the topic of this post, putting Voyager play time in the Dark for the first time ever, the monkey suddenly wanted to do other things and kept clicking away from the page.
And when you announce the name after the baby is born, everyone has to pretend they like it to your face no matter what they think, so you’ll end up feeling like everyone likes it.) You’d assume that thinking about baby names is a new thing in my life, but I’ve actually had a lifelong fascination with the topic.This time it didn't go away and so I saw my ob/gyn.She took a culture and found strep B, which has nothing to do with Strep A that creates strep throat.After many hours on The Baby Name Wizard (and the government’s official name database), here are my thoughts (focusing on the US unless otherwise stated)— Parents choosing a name have a few options: Examples: John, James, William, David, Mary, Sarah, Elizabeth Benefits: You won’t embarrass yourself; You won’t pigeonhole the kid in any way, including generationally; It’s classy; There’s something cool about a common bond with centuries of previous humans Drawbacks: It’s kind of boring. The Top 10 boys names in the 1880’s share six members with the Top 10 boys names in the 1950’s: John, William, James, Robert, Charles, and Thomas.These names are often biblical, or sometimes those of famous royalty, and they’re bigger than any one generation—William is not a typical old man’s name or young guy’s name—it’s just William. But the Top 10 in 2012 only includes one name from that list—William.The first time a friend of mine had a child, it was intensely jarring.
