What is the most popular name of your generation?

In my class at school, it would definitely be Lauren/Laura for girls. In my English class alone, there are four Laurens!

For boys, I would have to say Michael(Mike) or Nicholas(Nick)....

Just curious to see how trends vary over the years and throughout the world...

Well, Jennifer is the number one name for my generation, as it hits its peak in the 80's.
I was born in 1988!
I went to school with at least 20-30 Jennifer's!
