I wish I had an uncommon name. Not something like Apple or Pilot Inspector, but something just a little different.
Yep. I hate that my name is so common.

I feel bad when I know a baby named Jessica, cause I know how much I hated it as a kid. Just lumped in with all the other Jessicas.

I like uncommon names, but spelled in the common way (if that makes sense). So, our kiddo is Clive, rather than Clyv, lol. There's no need for a million extra Ys or vowels in a kid's name...

Ian is uncommon? I've always had one or two Ian's in my class. I taught 1 this past year too (which is crazy, since only about 5% of my kids had traditional "American" names).

My name is Karen, which I thought was perfect (not the name, necessarily, but the commonality of it). There was never more than 1 other Karen in my grade, but EVERYONE knows the name and knows how to spell it. My sister Diane is the same way. Both names were popular about 30 years before we were born, so they are familiar but not common.

Maybe that's what I like--familiar names. I don't like names that I don't recognize immediately as being names!

DH also ended up with an uncommon name. Jerrod. Everyone pronounces it Jared, which is incorrect. So he goes by Jin. Everyone calls him Jen. He's given up. Lol.
