My personal advice to parents is don't get caught up in trendy names. Stick to old family surnames, or Grandpa's or Grandma's name and of course biblical names. And you always give a son a very distinguished set of names, (at least 2 middle names), then just call him "Opie" or "------" for short. Don't know why, it's one of those southern things.

In the early 80's I liked the name Galadriel.... fortunately my wife had more sense.

Surprised by this current list of names, though. Posie, Milo... really?

Actually I kinda like some of these old fashioned names rather than ones from recent years.

I've gone many years on this site without revealing my first name. Fist reason-- who really gives a ----? Second of all, I used to go by my middle name, which is more American sounding.

I am named after my mother's father, who in turn was named after his mother's father, who was named after HIS father, who was a famous Swiss mathematician. So the name goes back to the mid-1800s.

Anyway, my first name is Salomon. But I am usually called Sal.

And my middle name?

I imagine that is less "pressure" than having the name "Donald" these days.

Jasper seems more like a girl name than a boy name.

I'll never think of Astrid again without thinking of the Office.
