I thought it was more common than that!
Is Carrie on the list? That's how I would spell it.

Speaking of which! They managed to butcher MY name once. I was like...how do you mess up, "Elizabeth"? I must have a lisp or something.

Was Ian ever more popular? I think that would be an interesting thing to look at. I would bet that one day Jessica will probably drop down to the 70's on the SSA's list, but no one's going to find it uncommon for a very long time, since so many people from previous generations are named that. It's like, I don't know anyone named Linda under 40 years old, but I'd never call that name unique, even though naming a baby today Linda would definitely make her the only one in school.

I worked with two Parkers, both girls. It's funny how those androgynous names tend to be very strongly associated boy/girl in my head! I can't picture Parker as a boy's name, even though I know logically it can be. I had both a girl and a boy Jordan in the same period last year--that was a trip.
Haha, I can't picture Parker as a girl!

Jessica is ranked 120 in 2011. It hasn't been in the top 10 since 2000.

Ian's name was at 81 when he was born. The lowest it's hit was 65 in 2003.

It's not pronounced like Carrie, though. It's pronounced like "County Kerry" in Ireland. She's not named after that, though- my parents just liked the name! But Carrie is pronounced like "carry," and my sister's is pronounced like "berry" with a k.

I don't understand. You mean making assumptions about personality based on names? It's scientifically proven that names shape personality and success to some extent. It's to be expected that everyone has assumptions or ideas about certain names based on their experiences. Jack, to me, is a very traditional name.

I still have no idea how you pronounce that! I had a soccer coach (a guy) named Kerry once, and it was pronounced "Carrie". How do you say it the irish way?

Okay, now I'm SUPER confused! I pronounce "carry" and "berry" exactly the same way!!!

She said she'd never lump names together, and that Hannah would never be "just another Hannah".

I said that it happens, it certainly wasn't my parents or I saying I was "just another Jessica", but the lumping of the same names happens, it's inevitable.

Then you just happened to lump Jacks together
