Names annoy me when you can tell there is obviously no thought that went into it.

For example, it seemed like every girl born in 2008 was named "Bella". Suddenly it was no shock the mother was a "Twilight" fan. Or there was every Hispanic girl born in 1995 named "Selena".

Also when you havent given ANY thought to the fact that your child has to grow up with the name you "so cleverly" gave them.

I named my Maltese, Prudence. I'd never name a child Prudence, but she was my little Pru-pup.

I was thinking the same thing! Also there's Anita, Theresa, Ellen, Ann/Anne/Anna, Kathy/Cathy (Katherine/Catherine), Evelyn, Irene, Elaine, and Alice; off the top of my head of girls I went to school with...a very long time ago!

I don't really like made up names. Once I knew a girl named Conundra...I mean really. Did her parents like the word conundrum?

Anna and Katherine have never died off in the way that Linda, Sharon, and Deborah did.

Neither has Margaret really, though it definitely isn't as popular as it used to be. Margarets tend to go by "Maggie" these days.
