Meaning “counsel”, of Irish origin.
A popular unisex name, it’s still predominately used among male babies, though its usage in Glee and other big, mainstream television shows is quickly changing that.

Harper, River, Rowan didn't even make the list of Top 100 (IN CANADA) yet you say these are popular? This article looks like something someone didn't research and did 5 minutes before deadline (notice the lack of name meaning). Open a web browser and do some research.MSN is really dropping the ball lately.
a boy named Sue
Lets face it, this first child could be named anything and it wouldn't matter as she is STUNNING!
However she seems to totally suit the name chosen and hopefully she will love it as an adult.
Kind of makes me wish I had had a child now...sigh
Well as a person who was blessed with a wacky name from day one and changed it a couple of times since to even wackier ... it is nice to see a creative edge in naming children, my kids have both "tradional" (boring) names and creative weird spelled names ... all given the option to change it if they like and I'll pay for the name change once!
Its an opportunity to be unique, to give your child that "stand out in a crowd" kinda feeling. Most celebrities change their names to something unique and marketable, so parents get the first chance at that. Like raising your child with pink or blue, old tradions belong only to Christmas, move up with the times, be creative and stand out!!!!
In the '70's I named my girls Julie and Sheri.
If I were having my babies now; I would call them Paige and Brooke.
I did luck out with the "Brooke" (grandaughter's name)
But, my love for boys names have NEVER changed; It is still Kenny and Troy. Wonder why that is? Just a thought.
I dont agree how they used "Sasha" name as a separate name. Sasha is a short form or non-official form of the name Aleksandre or Aleksandra. None of the birth forms will have Sasha as a baby's name. The official do****ents will say Aleksandre or Aleksandra and it is widely known thats it is the same as Sasha. Please dont name one kid Alex and another Sasha, it is the same name! Just like Nataliya and Natasha, Maria and Masha, Mikhail and Misha, Daria and Dasha, Aleksej (diff spelling Alexi) and Aleosha....same name! In Russia and most of former USSR, most of the names have a non-official name/ nick name that goes with it.
P.S. Agree with BeenThere12
I agree with you Janice.
Just the part about the name on the resume; not knowing if the person applying, is a male or a female. I would ditch it too.
Names I truly detest is one that can be used for a BOY or a GIRL.
AND, the name, Colin sends chills down my spine. It sounds like colon to me, everytime I hear it.
