My name continues to be in the top ten for girls in 2006–from the Social Security Administration

It’s great that there is a resurgence–but I kind of miss having a somewhat unique name. Now I respond to it being shouted across stores but it’s being called to much younger people than I am.

On a side note, while I was working with preschoolers during graduate school I encountered a lot of pregnant moms. At least one mom heard me introduce myself and decided that she liked the sound of that name for her daughter. I’m not sure if that was final verdict but my name was definitely in the running.
