Simon too up and coming?
I realize that Simon is now at only 256 (down a few spots from 2010), but it just seems to me to have all the aspects of a popular name. The -on ending is very in, and four of the top ten names in 2011 are from the Hebrew Bible, so people seem to like that theme.
We love Simon and plan to use it but want to be prepared for a surge in popularity. What do you think? For what it's worth, our daughter's name falls around 100, so we're not adverse to popular names, but we'd rather have a name that's consistent, rather than one with extreme peaks. Daniel, for example, has been in the top 20 for over 50 years, but it doesn't sound popular or dated because people of all different ages have the name. Simon has been on the rise since the 50's, which is worrisome, but probably not enough to keep us from it.
While I'm here, suggestions for a middle name to go with Simon? Thanks for your input!
