Top Baby Names of 2006

Saw this today and am both glad and sad that so many girls are named Emma. Glad because she’ll never have a name that people can’t pronounce or spell; sad because she, like me, will one day go to school with about twenty other girls who have her name.

Or Joseph. (I have to keep reminding myself that this could be a boy!)

Anna made the list but not Ana. People are determined to call her Anna, even though her name is Ana, so I guess her name is on the list, huh? (For the record, I don’t think so, since they’re neither spelled nor pronounced the same way. )
