I believe parents should recall their own childhoods before they name their babies. The formative years are challenging enough without having to wear a name their peers are going to trash.

Most school age children want to blend in or "fit in" and oftentimes as adults we simply forget about that when we fall in love with the latest unusual name going around.

Another headache for a child to deal with is always having to correct people regarding the spelling of their name when parents opt to go with a non-traditional spelling "just to be different".

Kevyn instead of Kevin or Thom instead of Tom to go along with other names that will never appear on coffee mugs or key chains.

If the average person can't pronounce or spell the name it's probably not going to be a name {your child} would want.

Last but not least make sure the first and last name sound good together. I knew a guy who's last name was Fisher. When he and his wife had their first son they named him; Hunter Fisher.

However that's not the worst one I've ever heard there is a guy in Southern California with the name Harry Weiner! (Why???)

Many years ago Johnny Cash had a song called "A Boy Named Sue". If parents put themselves in their child's shoes and remembered what it was like growing up they'd be more mindful.

I am long past the time where I had to pick out names, but I did find your article interesting. I have a new nephew named Owen, which was in the more popular name list.
