While we are on the subject of names, what names were popular when you were growing up? My DH was christened John Paul with a really common surname. He had 6 John Paul’s in his class and 3 of them had the same surname as DH, confusing for the teacher I’d say! Needless to say he was born around the time of the Popes visit to Ireland!
I think these names were very popular in our area when I was growing up
Edited to add Lisa
When I was growing up these names were very common in the classroom.
for me this probably shows my age!!:
i grew up in scotland so im sure they may be different...
girls - Kirsten, Jennifer, Nicole, Elaine and Emma.
boys - David, Craig, John, Euan and Gary.
Looking at that now, I don't know many people here with any of those names. That may just be me though! xx
we had 3 jennifers and 4 jonathans in our year at school.........
There were six Sarah's and four Emma's in my class
Coming from another country the names are different, but here we go:
Goran (pronounced Gho-ran)
we had 3 Sarah's and 3 Yvonnes in my class in primary.
as for boys think Paul was the most popular
