Top Baby Names For 2015
It's that time of year again when Nameberry releases the top baby names in the USA.
Americans take naming their child so seriously so it's no wonder that thousands of new parents are scanning this list today. Names come and go in popularity rankings over the years but in the United States, naming a child is much more than just a cute name. It's a social statement.
It not only has to have a certain vibe, but also a certain sound. Many parents pick names just based off the first letter so that their initials all match. Some kids have to have names that have letters to create an acronym : (CAT : Cathryn Alice Turner). Some must sound more sophisticated or appropriate for their state and economic/social background. Also, many new parents imagine what kind of careers would match certain names so that their kid will have an immediate sense of professionalism.
Some parents like to mimic favorite tv or movie characters or name their kids after famous celebrities, athletes, or public figures. You can never name your kid something that is too hard to say but you don't want your kid to be the 7th Katie or Alex. Names today are picked based off of coolness factor and trying to prevent the possibility of your child being bullied. And OF COURSE everyone seems to be shocked when celebrities name their children intimate objects, directions, or colors such as Gwyneth Paltrow's Apple, Kim Kardashian's North, and Beyoncé's Blue Ivy.

Name are EVERYTHING.

There is way too many Mary's on both sides of the families to even try and name a girl Mary. I agree it is a beautiful soft graceful name
