Is My vs. Choice Too vs. Popular?
I have chosen a name for my daughter-to-be, but several people have commented on how popular the name is, and say it is being overused. So, without telling you the name, I would like to see if it is really that popular. Please tell me the names of the last 5 little girls you met who were under the age of 6yrs old. And, if you would like to include where you are from, that would help. I will wait until I have a good number of replies before I tell you her name and we see how many times it shows up. Thanks!
The Top Baby Name is...
I live in the Southeast and the last 5 girls I met under the age of 5 were:
Florida - Ava, Hannah, Chloe, Brynlee and Lila
I live in TN.
I know of at least 3 Ava’s under 2.
Lily (yes another one)
I live in the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic.
If i had to choose the top 5 over used names in our area ( UK) it would be;
Eleanor/ Ella/ Ellie
Closely followed by....
I would steer clear of all of the above. My son has 3 Isabelle’s in his class! And there are at least 4 Olivia’s in his year at school!
Mine are from- MT, ID and AZ^
Oh, I forgot, the names above are from AZ and TX (Isabella, Anabella, etc)
I live in Phoenix, AZ
I live in Georgia, but it seems like most people in my area are transplants from either the northeast or California...
^^ Apparently, Canadians have relatively normal names! Not like us...haha!
The last 5 girls I saw are in my son’s daycare:
Piper, Emersyn, Rosabelle, Trystan and Olivia
My daughter has 3 Sophia’s in her pre-school class.
My 1st grade son has 2 Isabelle’s in his class
I know 2 Leah’s under the age of 5
What is the name?
Yes please tell us the name you picked.
Daughters of my friends and family under 6 are:
oh and I live in colorado.
Please tell us the name!!
Sorry, I went to fix dinner and just now came back! I have only seen the name in three posts, which is not bad, considering the number of names posted. Her name is going to be Eleanor Hope, nn Ella/Ellie.
I did want to point out, though, that we had been planning to use Ava Grace until a friend had her baby and named her that. (They didn’t announce the name before she was born.) Now that I see it on so many of these lists, I am glad I decided not to use it! Thanks for all of the comments!
IMO Eleanor is definately not popular in my area. I love it! Great choice :)
Eleanor is a wonderful choice!! And I don’t think it’s overly popular by any stretch. Just a great, classic name :)
and 2 Isla’s
I know 6 Eleanor’s ranging from 3 months go 5 years.
It is very popular in the UK at the minute. With Ella, Ellie or Elle as nicknames.
It’s a nice name hence the popularity bit maybe consider something alittle more unusual like Eliana instead?
or Nora/h as a nickname?
Eleanor is not that popular however Ella is. But if you want to use it go ahead there is nothing wrong with using a popular name. I have a name that is not popular and it’s annoying because nobody says it correctly or knows how to spell it even though it isn’t unheard of. I don’t see why it’s so important to have a name that is unique/uncommon. I felt left out when I was younger because I could never find anything that had my name on it when all my friends have had stuff with their names on it.
Audrey / Aubrey
I am from Canada
I knew the popularity was increasing, but we haven’t heard it that much where we live, so we still plan to use it. I was just curious to see how popular it actually was and where. Thanks for all the comments!
