In the last post I made, I discussed some websites T and I go to in order to wile away those baby pangs. One of them is called “Baby’s Named a Bad, Bad Thing” and is essentially someone who grabs these posts off of other sites and makes sarcastic comments about the names.
Here’s an example:
Her response: Nothing like being named after a cheap mass market spritzer to define your personality.
Anyway, here’s another fun website that shows you the popularity and history of any name. It’s fun to see when a name gains and loses popularity. My name, for example, peaked in the seventies when I was born but has gone down dramatically since then. For what it’s worth, the name in question is Jodi. You don’t meet a lot of kids today named Jodi, but there’s a lot of us in our thirties! Have fun with it, readers, and report back to me if you find any other good sites about naming babies, serious or otherwise. I won’t be one of those weirdos who pays a marketing firm to name my child, though!
