It's American but still relevant.

Thoughts please

I like the more exotic flower names trend like Lilac, plus O names

So these are "predictions". Has she been reading MN? grin

Hmmm. It seems to cover just about every style of name there is though. There can't me many names left after that very broad sweep of what might be popular!
But gutted that my 4 year olds name is on there and Marigold (which I love!).

Yeah, they seem to be covering their bets by predicting lots of names becoming popular. Marigold reminds me of plastic gloves for some reason hmm

Am horrified to see Felix is a Twilight name... I didn't mind the catfood connotations, but would hate for people to think those godawful books influenced my choice :-(

Poor Edward, such a classic name now lumped in with all the 'twilight' fad.

Names I like there that I've suggested on mn, like Roscoe and Marcus!

Bummed to see something I was considering for DC2 if she's a girl...

achhh, I don't think people would thnk that. Felix has been around now for about 13 years and I did not even know there was a Felix in Twilight til I read it on baby names.
