Choosing baby names - Trendy or traditional

February 16, 2006 EST | Family Matters

Lists of baby names are always fun to look at, whether you're seeking a name for your soon-to-be-born baby boy or baby girl, wondering about the popularity of your own first name, or just curious about what baby names are currently hot.

What I find particularly interesting is tracking the popularity of baby names over the decades. In looking through U.S. government baby name lists from 1880 to the present, some amusing patterns emerge, particularly in regards to baby names for girls.

For example, in Victorian times Biblical names, such as Mary, Sarah and Ruth were very popular for baby girls. There were also many baby names that sounded very old-fashioned to me, as a kid growing up in the 1960s, including names like Martha, Alice, Bertha and Minnie. [More...]

Some children are more precocious than others, and even with their crib mattress in the lowest position, they can be scaling the heights and heading over the rails before you know it. Most toddler beds are not designed to use rails with. Generally, they are low enough that falling out of bed is not a serious issue. And at this age, a toddler who wants out of the bed, is going to get out, regardless of what measures you take. [More...]
