Well, since this is a name board I thought it would be fun to start a topic on how our lists have changed over the years. If you're anything like me you started making lists of favorite names in elementary school. I mean, Barbie and Ken are so boring... they needed new names.

So what were your 5 favorite names for each gender when you were in -
Elementary school?
Middle school?
High school?
Early 20's?
Late 20's?

Those are just examples - divide it up in whatever way works for you. ;)
