Common vs. Uncommon

Did you have a popular name growing up? Were you the 3rd Emily or Ashley in your class? If so, how did you feel? Conversely, did you have a very uncommon name growing up? How did you feel? Also a question to both: what did you think of kids with common/uncommon (the opposite of yours) names? Did you wish you had their name? Or were you happy you didn’t? My name was neither common or uncommon so I’d really like comments from people who either loved/hated their type of name. You don’t have to mention the name, just what you thought of it. Thanks!

Genie's Mailbag

Carina in Canada
Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
