Opinions on top ten names, also Jack and Luke
We are down to two names for our son, Jack and Luke. Although Jack is not top ten in the U.S., it is in the part of the world where we live. It was number 1 for about 4 years and is now about number 2. We have an unusual surname so do want a fairly common first name. I'm not looking for alternatives as we are definitely going to use one of these two names. I'm interested in comments from people who have names that were top ten when they were born. Do you mind having such a popular name? Did it bother you to be called your first name and first surname initial when you were at school? Is Jack with a surname beginning with S a bad combo given he may be known as Jack S at some point? Also, does Luke strike you as overly biblical? To me Noah is very biblical while Luke is just a name that happens to appear in the bible.
