    @SarahJane, I actually love Bear and Fisher! If Fox and Foster are gaining popularity (love them, too, btw), why not Bear and Fisher? Then again, one of my favorite bands has a lead singer named Bear, and I just think Bear is cool all around. I like Foster and Bear much more than Fisher, personally, but I do like Fisher too.

    Today at work I heard:

    Schuyler
    Mara
    Tess
    Helene (heh-LEEN)

    I especially like Schuyler and Tess, and I would have loved Helene if it was the proper French Helene “ay-LEN”. :)

    Bear and Fox are a little silly to me for FNs but I can kind of see the appeal. I wouldn’t do Foster b/c of the strong “foster child” association. Fisher is eh. I don’t usually like occupation names though I do like Archer.

    Helene is pretty, as is Tess. I like Mara fairly well.

    Ash, how did that person pronounce Schuyler? Like Skyler? Or shu-ler?

    lol, I don’t really know. I was at work. I just saw it and instinctively said SKY-ler, because I know that’s how it’s traditionally said. And he answered straightaway, so SKY-ler, I guess? Or maybe he was just used to people saying his name wrong. Helene, though, was quite impressed I said her name right. It was spelled Helleen on the monitor, but I assumed it was probably Helene. Much prettier than Helleen, imo. :)

    Schuyler(That’s my youngest sons name) is said like Skyler.

    OK, that was my guess. I just know people with that last name and they pronounced it Shoo-ler so it made me wonder.

    I met a little girl named Polly. I like that name and am surprised it’s not more popular.

    I recently heard that Imogen is the number one name for baby girls this year. Has anyone ever heard it?! Any ideas why it is so popular?

    Friends recently named their baby boys Declan and Blaise.

    Imogen is definitely not the top name. Where did you hear that? It hasn’t been on the SSA list for years, if ever. It would take something incredible to get that high. Isla, Harper, and Eloise, all of which have made incredible jumps in the past years, didn’t get anywhere that popular that fast. There’s a website (babynames.com, maybe?) that publishes a list near the end of the year (I think) of the most popular names on their website, same with Nameberry.com, but they’re not the actual SSA list. Imogen is quite popular in other English-speaking countries (the UK, Australia, New Zealand), but never caught on here. Some people still use Imogen, but not enough for it to be that popular. I doubt it’ll really ever catch on here, actually…

    NMteacher, maybe that was the name that had the sharpest rise this year or something? Do you remember where you saw that? I wonder if there’s an Imogen on a popular TV show or book right now that may have spiked a little rise in popularity.

    Lilybell, I really like Irina! I have a friend named Iryna (from Ukraine) and I always though it was very pretty. I’ve toyed with using it as either a FN or MN.

    Ah, Imogen was the most-viewed girls’ name on Nameberry. Interesting!! I know that doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll end up being the most popular but I do wonder what spiked such interest in it over the past year.

    Ah, right. That’s Nameberry. They put out a list once a year, I think it is, that shows the names that have been most searched on their site so far for the year. It’s supposed to give a general idea of where naming style will go in the future, because the names people on their site like are generally a couple years ahead of the general populous (for example, they all LOVED Henry and Harper until they got super popular, and they’re really into Mabel, Clementine, and Susannah for girls right now, which aren’t totally loved by the general public, but are gaining popularity and interest. They’re starting to get into really, really old-lady names like Agnes and such, which most people still see as old-hag names. (personally, I adore Agnes, haha!)).

    Anyway, today my church did a can collection for the hungry for around Thanksgiving and such. So the youth group was there, and it’s sort of a mix of kids from several churches and schools in the area, since other churches don’t have them, so I didn’t recognize some of the kids. Some of the names I came across:

    Rachel
    Daniel
    Oscar
    Elvis (yes, seriously! I kid you not. His name was Elv!s Rodr!guez. I thought it was Elias, Ellis, or Elian at first, and was quite excited, because I think those are all quite cool. But yes, Elvis. Le sigh. I never thought Elvis was that impressive, tbh, so I don’t really get the idea behind naming a child after him. It wasn’t that exciting of a name to begin with, just really weird. Ah, well…)

    There were many more, but those were the only ones I caught.
