Have you ever felt like you were stuck with a bum name?
I’ve never felt wronged with my first name. Paul is now officially out of favor with most people, but I like it. It’s one syllable, easy to remember, pretty easy to spell, and certainly fits my “wacky zany goofball” personality.
But Ryan’s name is still popular – he’s at #19!
A few surprises from the list: Caleb is the 43rd most popular boy’s name; Tristan ranks as a popular boy’s name; and, about a third of the girls’ names are either clever misspellings (“Jordyn”, “Kaylee”) or seemingly out there (“Makayla”). One thing is clear: kids being born in the 00s are primed to be the next Rainbows and Sunshines.
