Name Madness – Round One

The Popular Baby Names list for 2007 should be coming out soon!  So, I’m sure I will have a post about that as soon as I get my thoughts together on it.  Until then, I thought it would be fun to do this little exercise.  I got this idea from The Baby Name Wizard Blog.  I’m opening myself up here, but here is a list of the top 36 girl names and 36 boy names that I like.  Just like in the basketball tournament, for Round One I would like for you all to pick the name that you prefer from each pairing.  I will tally up the results and then post Round Two with the winners of Round One, at which point you will choose the name that you prefer in the new pairings, and so on until we have a winner for girls and a winner for boys.  I will leave each round open for a week, so make sure you put your mark on things and vote as soon as you can!  This will in no way influence how Brent and I choose the name of our little one, but I thought it would be fun to see what you all pick!  🙂
 
So, in your comment, put the number of each pairing and the name you choose.  For example: #1 Anna, #2 Anya, #3 Brooke, etc.

    Hey, JR is disappointed that you didn’t include more names from his list. Judah is a TIGHT name, yo.

  12. Daisha, that’s actually why I voted against Jameson, too. And I promise that I am not familiar with her “work”in the least. You just learn these kinds of things being around college students (who don’t go to Harding)…
