It's hip to be square...or Felix

I just saw a list of popular baby names for 2010. Do you see #12? (Why couldn't it be lucky #11? And it beat out Miles?) I was shocked. We never thought we would ever meet another Felix under the age of 88. It's not that we liked a celebri-tot named Felix...or even wanted to pay homage to a long distance runner or cyclist. We opened a book of names, found the German section and agreed that Felix was an awesome name. That was almost 1 year ago. We are total trend setters. Know what this means? Big things for our Felix...starting with his cheeks.

PS--What is strange is that many of these names were on our list of real possibilities for both Miles and Felix: RHYS, Sebastian, Oscar, Atticus, Levi, Oliver, Charles, Sawyer ...crazy!

  1. Apparently, I am cool too! At least we still have linus to make us different. ;)

  2. Oh my goodness! I am so surprised that Felix beats out Miles. I've heard several Miles but not Felix yet. At school we have the Owens and Elis and Evans, although not many of the others surprisingly. It's always neat to be on the cutting edge of things....

  3. Phew, I am relieved to see that our choice for the new little one is not high on the list. Ella keeps moving up since we picked it, though. I, too, am surprised about Felix being so high... I figured Miles would be more popular. You are indeed a trendsetting family.
