What names of children do you like? Here are some of the most popular ones right now…

Nameberry has just released their popular list of names for boys and girls. It is interesting to note, though one major warning is that the lists come from how often each name is checked on their page, and Nameberry reading does not match exactly with the US population, so please take this with a grain of salt!

My current favorite of boys are Nicholas (after my brother) and Jeremy (after my dad), and the girls are Claire, Louise and Paige. I also love Olive because of my favorite book.

Your favorite names these days? Can you name your child by name, relative, fiction or location?

PS From one to two children, it is a blind date to test children’s names. And, of course, The Ache.
