Most Frequent Sightings
I thought it might be interesting if we shared our own most frequent name sightings--not based on any data, but purely on your perception and experience. I wonder how they compare to each other, given we all live in different areas and probably live in name pockets that we didn't even realize existed.
So I'll start. I'm in the Southern US, just outside of a major city.
Most frequent boy name: Jackson, hands down. I can count up several who were born this year, plus many others up through elementary age.
Most frequent girl name: Emery. This one has been really surprising to me because I never encountered it before the past year or so. Now suddenly there are several Emerys at every storytime and kid's event we attend. I looked up the stats and it ranks 84 spots higher in my state than it ranks nationally.
