AIBU to think the government should cap the number of children called a particular name each year?

ok I know I am and this is supposed to be a bit of a light hearted thread but....

I am a brownie leader

25% of my pack are called Chloe!
3 of them have a surname starting with the same letter

out of the rest of them Molly,Holly & Emily I have multiples

I've taken to calling the entire pack by their full names so no one feels left out hmm but that's 48 names to rememeber!!!

how do teachers do it?

My boys have the top 2 boys names.
My daughters name rarely makes it I to the top 100.
I don't know any other Oliver's and there are none in his nursery either.
It could be an area thing.
Ds1 was named after his grandad.
Ds2 was named while we were waiting to go down to my section as we decided we didn't want baby hotcoffeeisamemory on his wristband!

Whoah - my name has really gone out of favour. It's a completely normal name that doesn't sound old fashioned at all but there were less than 30 babies born in 2010 with any spelling variant. It's a lot more popular in the states so people think it's more common than it actually is.

The Scottish stats office publish every national forename and top 10s for each council area. Helpful smile
