Don't be to creative with your child's name
Being unique is sometime confusing. If you are thinking of an alternative spelling for a name make sure that name exists. Your child will always have people spelling her or his name wrong if their name is not in the normal realm of thinking. It will also be impossible to buy any name-associated product for your child including toys, ornaments and jewelry. You would have to have it personalized, which may mean more money and time. Example: Variations of Gary can be spelled Garry, not Gari.
Boy Baby Names have a Biblical History
It seems that boys have been historically given Biblical baby names and there's no exception to this years top ten. Eight of the first top 10 are biblical baby names, including the #1 baby name "Jacob". The top baby name in the 40's and 50's was James. After that for the next 34 years Michael was the top boy baby name, but in 1999 it was finally topped by Jacob. How long will Jacob last? Data was found on the Social Security Administration website.
