I like unique names but not yooneek or whatever :P Meaning plays a small part, I obviously don't want to give my kiddo a name that means something I'm against or just flat out hate :]
I definitely don't want top 100.
I've been trying to stay out of top 500 at least. I check the social security website to see if my choices are on there too.
With our first, if I found the name on a keychain, cup or anything along those lines, it was off the list.
I guess if it came down to it and I found one I absolutely LOVED and then later found out it was in a top ranking, I might use it. I doubt it will, but stranger things have happened
