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

Elizabeth in Montana
We like Verity for our daughter's first name, for both the meaning and uniqueness, but we are struggling with a middle name. I love cacti/succulents and thought it would be neat to pick the name of a unique plant. Hoping for something different but still pronounceable and feminine. Any ideas?
Baby Name Genie:
Not to be prickly, but this cacti question is a thorny one. Let me sharpen my quill and take a stab at it. Name your daughter Verity Jade, if you don't want a few barbs thrown your way.
