Peter’s Future Classmates

Just for a laugh I looked at the SSA names website for 2009. Here are the results. Peter’s classmates will have these names.
 
POPULAR BABY NAMES 2009
 
Peter comes in at #191, which is weird to think that there are other kids (1,981 to be exact) his age named the same thing. Pretty cool though, I guess.
 
Boys #436 is pretty devastating. It is hard to make “large claw of a bird of prey” someone’s name 633 times over. My guess is that the parents (yes, all the 633 Talon’s parents) didn’t know the meaning (or look it up). So, they’re off to a good start.
 
Really all the names down in the 400’s are starting to get weird. By this measure, celebrities kids’ names are in the 1000’s at least, hahahaha. It becomes obvious that people start getting ‘creative’ and straight up make their children go through life
suffering from a portmanteau of a name. I won’t call any ONE name out (but there are some doozies).
 
I am excited at the thought of him meeting little friends. Maybe he’ll befriend a cute girl named: Ruby, Sophie, Audrey, Brooke, Abigail, Samantha, Elizabeth, or or or… I like the girl’s names on the list.
 
Oh for fun I looked up Sally’s year and name… Now, SHE is an ORIGINAL! Not even in the top 1,000 names. But I think we already knew she’s a one of a kind girl! <3
Then, my year and name… Rebekah is #179. —- I could probably go through every member of the family all day long. I will restrain myself. But it is just so fun.
 
Go ahead, look your name up! Tell me what it is in the comments! 🙂
