Is Your Name One of the 10 Most Common in Your Country?

Mine, definitely is.

Yesterday, I found a very interesting list of the most popular given names.

Those are very popular names. Mine isn't on there, but it was the most popular name the year I was born and through my whole childhood.

My name's not there (Theresa) but there were 3 of us in my high school class and a handful of Michelle's. Lately I see a lot of babies being named those names you listed ;)

Interesting! I had no idea my name was so darn popular in the US and other countries (Emily). It was fairly unique when I was little.
