That which we call a rose...

We keep track of all embroidery orders in an Excel spreadsheet. We've done hundreds. I copy and pasted the names into a new .xls the other day and sorted ascending. Every name that appears >5x is hereby stricken from the "Potential Names For the Daughter I Never Intend To Have" list. (God, I don't know what the heck to do with a baby. Don't care much to know, thank you very much.)

These names include (in no particular order): Ava, Emma, Ella, Sophia, Sophie (among others). Holy crap, these are popular names. When I was an infant, the list would've read "Jennifer, Christina, Jessica." A few years ago it would've had Madison's aplenty. What is popular changes constantly, it's just kinda interesting. My name, I'm pleased to say, hasn't been in the high ranking numbers for quite a while.
