The Baby Name Awards

 

I saw this idea on Nameberry and thought it would be fun to do here!  For each category, you can nominate up to three names.  Once everyone has had the chance to nominate, I will create a separate thread for people to vote on the nominees, ultimately resulting in one winner per category.
