If you HAD to pick a name from the current Top 25, which would it be and why?
I noticed that the Top 1000 names of 2013 are up, so I have to ask: If you were obligated to choose one of these twenty-five names for a child's first name, which would it be and why? Usually expectant parents are so caught up with trying to find a unique name which is anything BUT popular that they overlook the positive points of some of these "common" names. After all, there is something to be said for a child fitting in and feeling a part of the community of his/her generation.
I'd choose Samuel or Grace. Samuel is my soon-to-be husband's middle name and also the name of one of his grandfathers. It's "traditional" but not stodgy, masculine but not "hard," and amiable without sounding soft or feminine. I also love the male nickname Sam. I'd choose Grace because I think it's extremely classy, easy to spell, and never confused in terms of gender or spelling. It would sound good on someone over five years old. I also like its nickname, Gracie, as an option.
