wilco BS: Names we used to hear (57* d) RE: BS: Names we used to hear 15 May 03

The demise of big families, with lots of kids, is the reason you don't hear very many names anymore. Everyone has one or two names for their children, usually a combination of what is currently popular, and the newborn's grandparents' names. You don't really have to start getting inventive until you have more than two or three kids. I have eight, and the last one was named after a freight company that I saw on the way to the hospital when he was born!
    I've coached kids sports for thirty years, and I have a family full of teachers. The names are very faddish. I once had a little girls soccer team of about 13 girls, and I had seven or eight Laurens.
    I still get real tickled when I see some adult professional woman's name is Muffin, or Heather.
