I need a vs. popular name vs. for a baby
Hi, guys, I’m expecting a baby but I’m SO afraid to name him/her! People these days give their kids such "unique" names that are constantly ridiculed by others. I just want my kids to assimilate in society and be just like everyone else! The most common names right now are Liam and Emma. Do you think they will stay popular throughout the years? Thanks! -Marianne
The Top Baby Name is...
No gurl you need to dare to be difffernt! If you like liam&emma spell it "leeyum" or "Ehmuh"
NO! Unique names are special names, and your kids will be special kids!
Wait, do you want your kids names to stay popular through the years or not?
Just because someone uses a name that happens to be popular won’t make their kid any less special. Not everyone has to like unique names; and unique names aren’t the only "special" names; that is very ignorant of you to say previous commenter.
Marianne; some names that are "normal" or more common that I’ve seen, but still think are lovely; are:
Emma (as you have said)
In my opinion, Emma and Liam are trendy. They will date your child... For instance, if I said I have a friend Barbara you would assume she’s at least 50 years old lol If I said my friend’s name was Jessica, then you’d assume she was in her 20s.
Stick with the classics if you don’t care about popularity:
I think Emma will be popular for quite a while. And even if its popularity fades, it’s a classic so you can’t go wrong wrong either way. Liam is a bit more on the trendy side, so not as timeless. You could always use William with the nn Liam.
Also, any name has teasing potential. Anna becomes "Anna Banana", an Elizabeth that goes by Lizzy can become "Lizzy the Lezzy", Thomas can become "Uncle Tom", Kate becomes "I Hate Kate", Luke is "Luke Puke", etc etc
The only name that I can’t find teasing potential: James
Most kids I knew growing up hated having names that were the same as someone else in the class, and that would actually start a lot of fights in elementary school over who was the \’better\’ Paige or Jake. Kids are going to get on other kids for ANYTHING, and sometimes it\’s their name, and it\’s not always because it\’s a unique name, sometimes because it\’s too popular.
If you really want popular names, why not go with names in the top 25-100 instead of top 10?
Go with David and Ann.
Thanks lovelies, I love so many suggestions!

Why don’t you just relax a little and pick a name you love rahter than picking what’s most common/popular at the moment? It’s not like your kid is going to stand out in a negative way because she isn’t named Emma or Liam...
Anyway, these are some names I think are classic that you might consider.
Or maybe any of these could be something you’d like?
Pick a name you love, that’s my advice for you. You’ll regret it if you don’t. If you love Emma and Liam go with that, they are beautiful names. GL
