Motherhood Mondays: What are your favorite baby names?

Want to hear the top 100 baby names of 2011?

The list includes some of my favorites (Miles, Oliver, Paige, Lucy). I was also amazed by how unusual some of the names are: Brooklyn and Summer, for example. What are your favorite baby names?
Also, do you think Aiden is at the top because of this handsome fellow?

P.S. The Blind Date test for baby names, and more Motherhood Mondays posts.

I've got a Samuel (46) and an Evelyn (50). If we have a third I think my top picks would be Ruby for a girl and Nolan for a boy.

Rebecca, my name is Eleanore Elisabeth (I have always been called Nora, though). I quite like my name--- the "olde english" spelling has been a logistical headache, though.

i have scarcely met any Eleanores, and only a few Noras.

i like the names Nan, Anton (Tosca for short), Cyril, Flynn, and Mu-- all have very specific meaning and qualities to me. //<>~^

I'm obsessed with names, so naming my children was really difficult...My son is Caspian Purcell and my daughter is Lucinda Galilee. My children have friends with great names, too- there's a Poppy, a Mirabel, a Cosmo and an Ofelia.

Kylie said...

Wow how cool seeing my name (Kylie) on the list. I'm a New Zealander and it's long been a popular name here and in Australia but very unknown in the States. I remember visiting as a kid and no-one understanding my name. Of course that was probably also due to the fact our accent was a little unusual.

our daughter (due in 2 mos) will be called Harlow Paige. we just thought it was a beautiful name : )

if she were a boy it would have been easton bradley

I was really surprised to see the name Hadley on there - I've fallen more in love with it after reading about Hadley Richardson, the love of Ernest Hemingway's life. Such a romantic name, and apparently very popular in the early 20th century.

Although my husband and I wanted to choose unique names, we didn't want to make up words. I'm actually glad to see our daughter's first and middle names already mentioned. Bc we received a lot of flack from family. Our son's name still hasn't been mentioned. Unless I missed it!

daughter:: Zola Imogen (meaning peaceful, innocent girl)

son:: Jens Christian (meaning God is gracious- it's a Scandinavian form of John) and (Follower of Christ)

Future baby names may include:
girl:: Vera Ingrid, or Fern, or Gemma
boy:: Knol or Soren

My Fiance and I have been talking about baby names lately. It might be a while before we actually have to make a decision, but it's just so much we can't seem to resist. He's Chinese, and I'm American, so we have a lot more naming to do. But our top English names at the moment are Keegan and Gwenivere (we can call her Gwen or Gweny), we also like Finnigan (call him fin) and Jemimah (we can call her Jem) as a Side note Chinese names we like, 广[guang] for a boy and 梅[mei} for a girl。
