  6. Cooly 11

    Actually, I can’t, except for Lily. I think that it’s C… Probably not. I was named after a flower so my mind jumps to that…

  7. meggie520

    Hey! I’m meggie520 and all the time ppl I know have names like Megan or Makenzie. I wonder why there not on the TOP 10 . Half of the people on the boys and girls list , I don’t know ppl with those names.MY fave names are Cealey(girls) and Charlie (boys)

  8. paco.haley

    Throughout my 11 years of living I’ve loved a bunch of names. I like the name Selena, but it isn’t listed there. I don’t just like it for Selena Gomez, but I always thought the name was pretty. I also like Nina and Teddy, and Sunshine (Sunny) for a girl’s name. And Charlie. I’m really surprised Nicholas and Zachary aren’t on the boy’s list. I see those names a lot.

  12. stonefairy

    I like Liam or Lucas the best of the boy names, and Chloe the best of the girl names. I like the name Sophia better than just Sophie, though. My fave boy name is Henry, and that wasn’t listed here… oh well, maybe someday the name Henry will make a comeback. Chloe is my favorite girl name; hooray that one is number 5!
