The top 5 female baby names of last year:
Is this odd to anyone else? Where do all these antique names come from? Are they family names? Are we aiming for some sort of connection to the past, to times we consider (however naively) to be simpler?
Also, if what's old is new again, what about naming your daughter some of the forgotten names of yore:
Bessie, Hattie, Pearl, Cora, Blanche, and perhaps my favorite unfortunate old-time name, Dorcas.
What names do you predict will rule the 2010s?
