Top Baby Names Of 2011!

I love this list. No idea why. I think it's because I was a Sociology major in college and I wonder about how society influences us!! I must say I know a ton of Sophias, Isabellas, and Avas! I get a slight sense of satisfaction in seeing my kids are not in the top 20! What do you think of this list? Anything surprise you? I saw Kaylee on there and about fell over. See how the news creeps in? (Casey Anthony's poor daughter).

I'm an Emily who was supposed to have been named Emma but my dad thought it sounded too old....and now look at it at the top of the list! And Emily's been in the top 10 as long as I've been alive. I like you find all of this very interesting...

We were going to go with Jackson, so glad we didn't! I know like 4 baby Jacks. Way too popular now. I'm very glad we went with Landon :)

Our girl name was Lily, but we will more than likely not use it if I ever have a girl. It's too common and I don't love it as much as I used to. Our new girl name isn't in the top 20 :)

I may or may not have chosen my 3rd daughter's name from Town and Country magazine;) what does this say about me? Should I even push" publish comment"? Hugs!

Kind of funny that 3 names I was considering are on this list.... but I don't know anyone in real life named them. And I haven't looked at any lists or books this time around. The name I *think* we're going with isn't on here though. :)

I'm not a fan of the Brayden/Jayden names but I do love Jackson. Unfortunately everyone is naming their sons Jack or Jackson right now. But at the rate I'm going it will not be trendy when I have kids ;)

I really like your kids names :) I'm dying to know what my sister is naming my nephew. Won't find out until March though!
