Pick a good one, Mom and Dad.Here is the list we've all been waiting for -- 2012's most popular baby names list gathered from CafeMom's community. Some will cheer that our little bundle made it to #9 (my son) because that means it's such an awesome moniker many had to choose it; while others will re-think their choice and head to the Social Security office for a name change.
One of the most controversial names -- Nevaeh (heaven spelled backwards) -- increased a notch in popularity this year from 2011's list, but the number one most popular name for boys and girls remained the same. It's clear we've been inspired by the Royal Family (wonder if Kate and William will have a little Junior if it's a boy), America's 'royal' somethings the Kardashians (Mason! Khloe! Kendall!), the ever-inspirational Twilight and Teen Mom, and even Fifty Shades of Grey, though shockingly Anastasia didn't make the list. Figures only the dominant one did.
Check out the list!

No they didn't, thank goodness, I prefer to name my kids non common names, so there isn't 6 of the same kids names in one class room.
My girls are April Nicole (whom is now 24) and has 2 girls of her own, Faith Nicole & Kensley Paige. (Faith made the list, but it is a family name)
My other daughter is Mae Elizabeth,(whom is 20) and tho Elizabeth made the list, that is also a family name, and the name my older daughter picked for her younger sibling not knowing at almost 4 yrs old, that it is my middle name that I got from both my grandmothers. :)
