Seattle baby names?

I'm interested in finding out what baby names are currently fashionable in the Seattle area -- does anyone here live in/near there? I'm not looking for the most popular names -- I found the top ten for boys and girls for Washington state in 2011 here ( -- but rather the ones that are up and coming, or particular to that area of the country, especially among the young professional "hipster" set. Thanks!

That's my area of the world. Are you looking at particular names?

Just looking for ideas of what two highly educated, highly paid professionals in their late 20's/30-ish living in the city of Seattle itself might consider for a baby of either gender. Thanks!

Pretty much anything and everything. You will hear anything from Elizabeth/Katherine to Margaret/Evelyn to Penelope/Serenity to Piper/Harper to Lola/Nora to Sage/Hyacinth for girls and William/Alexander to Logan/Aidan to Mason/Ethan to Kellen/Kiernan to Carter/Colton to Isaiah/Jonah (I know multiples of each of these in the under 3 crowd). 

There are pockets of Asian communities, Hispanic communities, Indian communities, Native communities, etc. so there are a lot of ethnic names also. We do get some "hippie" names, "earthy" names, and absolutely we have geek names (I know two Halcyons, a Tesla, a Perl, a Siri, a Tiberius, a Linus, and 2 Leias [along with their brothers who are both Luke]).
