Stupid baby names:
Look up the top 5 names for boys/girls, pick your year, all are dumb. No originality.
Only thing worse is naming them after objects like cars or other objects like 'apple'. Even less originality.
People should pick something special. It doesn't need to not be a popular name but god damn poeple can't think for themselves or distinguish the only reason they like something is the familiarality of the name...I have the #1 most popular name for a boy in the year I was born and I hate that. I think that no ones name should tell you when they were born. Names should not be a 'trend' thing.
My first name was also the most common name for baby boys that year, but to add insult to that, my last name is the 4th most common last name in the entire US...also every bit of my name was a re-name of some family member, first name-grand pa, middle name-uncle's name and of course the last name is the family name...but i do get what you're saying and agree 100%
