Interesting. Is it the same for Morgan? I've known both female Morgans and male Morgans.

I knew a girl named June whose birthday was May 30th. I was in elementary school, and for some reason that bugged me.

I've noticed parents are going back to the older names now. My daughter's friend named her son George.
Yes, naming your baby after the most crime-ridden, impoverished city in the US is a good idea...

Same with Taylor and Jordan. Used for both girls and boys.

[quote=PatanjaliTwist;32272059]My brother, London disagrees with this. But, my sister, Kalamazoo agrees.

I make no judgments & I'm not sure why, but the vast majority of names don't sound pleasant to me, newer names or more traditional. I guess we all hear sounds which are pleasing or not. We also may like or dislike names for more associative reasons... if one wasn't treated well by a Sue, Freddy or Montrose in the 3rd grade... well, it might not bring about good memories.

I do find some circumstances strange, however. Like George Foreman naming all 5 sons, George. Why? I'm guessing he must have had nicknames (or numbers) for them all. 'George III, do your homework!'

He said himself one time on TV that he named all his sons George so they all would know who their daddy is...........

Maybe they were named after the trendy London neighbourhood?

It is a beautiful name that goes with a beautiful, loving, giving woman whom we all adore.

The name is not as important as the person though and it also makes me wonder what others think of YOUR name.
Maybe they see you sitting in the cave completely excited that fire has been discovered and the wheel invented.
I had an Aunt Dolly although I never knew her. Her real name was Frankie. Upon hearing that name, the mystery was cleared up for me about the song "Frankie and Johnny"
