I do not mean this in a bad way but anyone hear the same names over and over and over the last couple of years?

Mines are:

Jayden - had 8 clients so far this year with that name
Ellie
Eva
Imogen
George
Girl names ending in Lee, Lea, Leigh

Olivia and Harry. They are names, so I understand their popularity.

photographerlady I hear you on the name Jayden. I know of about 7! I also know of about 6 Kelly's. They all have the same second name of Ann too.

Finlay, Joseph, Sam, Elliott

Sophie, Hannah, Evie (etc)

All perfectly good names! Which is why they're popular, I suppose!

I know three Harrisons. And two of the mothers know each other.
I really like Finn sad cross that one off the list!

Definitely noticed a lot of Eve/Ava/Evies.

Can't say I have noticed any repetition with boys.
