Avoid Common Baby Names

Would You Avoid Choosing a Common Name For Babe?

There were so many Michaels and Daniels in school when I was growing up that most of those boys were also known by the first letter of their last name. When there were duplicates, the children went by their full names. That, or they decided on a nickname — Mike, Mikey, Dan, Danny, initials, etc. If someone called out one of the common monikers, several kiddos turned around. Some people find comfort in everyone knowing their name. Others prefer a unique label. What's your opinion?
