This month's set of birth announcements started out somewhat unusual as I began building the list, and as I continued, the names got a bit more traditional. However, they are all mixed together because of being placed alphabetically. Once again, the middle name choices seem to be very common or old-fashioned for most of the babies below. There are a few interesting exceptions like Yaamach and Kapri.
I wonder why so many parents choose "safe" middle name options. I feel like the middle name, since it is mostly tucked away, provides the perfect opportunity to use guilty pleasure names or the highly unusual. Instead, there are more unusual first names being used such as Alithia, Zyanya, and Kipper. What thoughts spring to your mind as you browse through the following list?:
Amy Rose Lei
Ariauna Danielle Linn
Athena Jene Leann Irene
McKynlee Jean Carolynn
Kobe Lee Lucas
Trevor Ellerson Daniel
Which of these names do you like most? least?
