Parents

Trendy? Classic? Made up? How did you choose your children's names?

Baby-name trends come in and out like fashion styles. Forty years ago, Sophia, Emma, Henry and Liam were considered grandparent names, not to be used for newborns. Now they're among the most popular parental choices. Cooper, Mason and Logan used to be thought of as last names only, but they're among the top first-name choices. And it'd be fun to go back in time and ask older generations what they think of "Game of Thrones" queenly title "Khaleesi" as a first name. (Thanks for that, George R.R. Martin.)
