Hi ladies! I used to teach pre-school, now I teach 2nd grade. Just a friendly word: if you want your child to belnd in completely with the crowd, go with these names:
Ava, Grace, Kailey, Kylie, Kaity, (any Kate form), Emma, Emily, Julia, Madelyn, Alexis, Riley, Olivia and drumroll..the most popular...SOPHIA or Sophie.
Aiden, Jack, Connor, Evan, Ethan, Matthew, Joshua, Luke, (or Lucas) Collin, and the most popular...JACOB. (Clearly, I teach more girls).
I know a lot of people look at Name Lists, but this is coming from the real world (I teach in New York.) These kids all BLEND TOGETHER in my head. I have to resort to Sophia P, Sophia F, and Jacob B, Jacob R, and Jacob J. .It's crazy.
Names that I NEVER hear anymore? (used to be old-fashioned but now would sound new and charming):
Boys: Michael, (it's still out there, but not common at my school; believe it or not, I don't have one in my class), John, Charles, Sam, Eric, Jason and Joseph.
Girls: Sarah, Amy, Angela, Joanna, Anna, Kristin, Lisa, and Rebecca.
