Sometimes I wonder why we even bother to give children names at all. I have a daughter, her given name is Anna, we call her Moo. My name is Bruce, my family calls me Duck. I think it's a law in Breaux Bridge that everyone has a nickname! Still we've got to call these babies something so here are some of the more popular names that new Moms and Dads are choosing.

I wonder how much longer until we start hearing of little girls named Pippa and will William and Harry make a strong resurgence? So where did you get your name? Is it a family name? Are you named for a celebrity? Or were your parents drunk when you were born? Don't laugh, we know of at least a couple of people who swear that's how they got their names.
