We didn't choose our names, our parents did. So therefore we can't gloat with it but we sure can complain about it. At least for those who aren't really satisfied with their first name and are having severe doubt about their parents mental abilities at that time.
The list with most popular boy's and girls names changes every year. Sometimes I understand why a certain name is ranked that high and sometimes I'm clueless. Parents name their children ( especially the last decade ) more often after celebrities and that's why they are high ranked in the most popular list.
Not everybody though,. Some like to keep it real traditional, real American, fancy, simple and I could go on.
Are you satisfied with your first name? What's your story?
