Name Wizard

Here is a really fun website where you can type in your name and it will show you a graph of how popular it has been over the last century:


Unfortunately, there is no social rule that filters people's opinions on names we like. So we've decided to surprise everyone. When someone asks us what names we like we say "We just don't know yet" or throw out some decoys. We don't like trendy or really popular names. In fact, I'd say that we like old fashioned, distinguished names. Yes, "Old people" names, if you will. So you're all in for a treat.

"Ethan" is a old name, not popular at all right now.

We did the exact same thing. I didn't want to tell anyone the names we were thinking. And, we actually didn't completely decide until he was born.

Sorry, I said 'a' instead of 'an'. My apologies.

Thats kind of funny, because I seem to remember Ethan was going to be Ethan before he was born. Maybe it is that psychic ablility I'm remembering. Anyway, I'm fine with being surprised about the name, you kind of did that with Grant, I was thinking Sam or Luke but Grant popped in there out of nowhere. My friend recently confided in me that Earl is a favorite, you should go with Earl.
