Choosing a name for your child should not be taken lightly. There are a lot of things to keep in mind considering your kid will be stuck with this name for the rest of their life. So what were parents naming their kids this year? Here are the most popular choices.

Just remember that your child, not you, has to live with the name you give them forever. So be kind and be smart when choosing a name. Think about how it all flows together. Think about if it features alliteration. Think about if it rhymes, especially if it rhymes with anything naughty...don't make your kid a target. Those are just a few determining factors, but basically you just need to use some common sense.

I guess the names below aren't too bad, considering they were the most used names for the past year (according to babycenter.com). It's nice to see my son's name (Oliver) made the list. I guess we were ahead of the game when we named him.
