Little bundles of joy are JUST the best! They are so sweet and cuddly, choosing a name that fits them and where you are in life is a big challenge. Such an exciting part of creating a family and also showing love to family and friends both alive and who have passed within them!

Sometimes being unique with your baby name is, "cool" and, "hip" but remember the more unique the name is the more you should go out of your way to make them custom mugs and keychains because they will NEVER find trinkets with it listed.

Fun Fact

Nine of Washington’s top 10 boy’s names are also on the national top 10 list, the one name unique to Washington is Theodore.

For girls, Olivia, Charlotte, and Amelia top the list.  Luna and Harper are new names on the list this year.

I didn't think the boy names would be so formal, I haven't really ran into any of these names lately but having a name that you can shorten and create nicknames for is always cool. Try to rhyme something with Sarah, ewww to those without an H is all that comes to mind and that certainly is not a rhyme!

I do LOVE the girl names, the middle name for my tuxedo cat is Luna and Harper and Ava are such strong ones. Not shocking Olivia is at the top, top of the airwaves and top of the list!
