I think names are so interesting. In college I used to go get the baby name book and sit in Barnes and Noble and read the meaning of names. I wasn't even thinking of baby names, I would just sit there and look up peoples names I knew just to see what they meant. This website has a list of the most popular baby names every year from 1879 until today. You can also put your own name in to see what years it was popular. Pretty cool huh?

Names and their meanings are so funny. We named our girls and didn't find out the meanings until long after they were born. Dianna's name means divine, graceful, and pure and purity. Maddy's name means high tower and victory. It is so funny how they reflect their personalities and temperments...and we didn't even realize it!
