    Re: Top Baby Names of 2004

    I've always thought it funny that old people have old sounding names. You know, like Thelma, or Betty. How is it gonna be in 60 years when all the current generation of kids are all old and there's gonna be little old ladies running around going, "hey, Shenequah, come here."

    People need to remember that. You really aren't naming a kid. They will only be a kid for 18 years. They are going to have to be an adult with that name for 70 years.

    I knew a woman who named her kid Rocky. Not a nickname, that's his real name. Rocky?

    One of my nephews nickname is Rocky (thus named because he was over 9lbs at birth) - his real name is Walter. Everyone except for family calls him Walter.

    Nicknames are fine. Especially family nicknames. But some people need to think before they put names on legal documents.

    BTW, the nickname my family calls me is a doozie.

    Yeah, a girl in my kids' class is named "Precious".. Note, that's her real name, not a nickname. It might be cute now, but what about when the kid grows up?

    Our litmus test was how the name sounded being announced at a graduation commencement.

    If its greeted with snickers and giggles, then you probably want to rethink it.

    One of my litmus tests was how it would sound at Riverfront.

    Aiden was the name of one of Sarah Jessica Parker's boyfriends on Sex in the City (played by John Corbett). I also heard it somewhere else within the past week (on tv or in a book) but can't remember where.

    we chose zachary paul because it is strong and it grows up well. he got his middle name from my grandfather whose name was gene paul, and my mom who is paula gene.

    i loved the name braden, but that got shot down very quickly. i always swore i would never name my child after someone, but then it became important once i had him.

    it's very hard to choose a name. i never imagined!

    I just ran across this cool interactive Java tool that graphs the US popularity of hundreds of baby names from 1900-present. Takes a few seconds to load, but it's worth the wait.

    Re: Top Baby Names of 2004

    My brother had a son in 2004, (well, his wife did technically, but you know what I mean,) and they named it Finnegan Patrick. We have an Irish last name, so it's not too bad, but that's probably not a name I would have chosen. Anyway, my wife and I are expecting in August and we have not decided on a name yet. For each of my children there has been a lot of discussion and thought and eventually one name just seems to be the 'right' one. Weird, huh? My first two are daughters and we had chosen male names for them (which we didn't use) in addition to female names, but I never feel that I'd like to use those names again either. Any opinions on this? Has anyone used a previously chosen name that wasn't used on a subsequent child?
