When it comes to naming your baby, you find all different forms of inspiration. For my daughter, I wanted her to have a strong, classic name that she could be inspired by. For my son, it was a play on another word that had a strong meaning. According to recent studies that have been done, I'm not alone in going with names that are older.

I find the number of biblical names in the top ten boy names to be interesting. I also wonder if Liam being a top pick has anything to do with a certain Hollywood action star that has a certain set of skills...if you know what I mean.

The top girl names are fascinating because they all end in -a. They're also fairly long, for the most part.
