Top 20 Baby Names: Most Popular vs. Most Rare

109592651_47.jpgWhat's in a name? For expectant parents, there's often a lot of joy -- and a lot of stress. If you're making the decision to name your baby together with your partner, you'll likely encounter some strong opinions for and against certain names. Ultimately you have to come to a resolution that works for both of you. (Though I'll tell you, with my eyes of hindsight, it won't matter quite so much 2, 4, 7, or 10 years down the road from now -- so keep that in mind.)

I'm not here to give you tips on how to decide on a baby's name, however -- that was said and done in this post! Today, we're focusing on lists of the most popular vs. most rare baby names divided by girls, boys, and agender/gender neutral/unisex. Maybe, just maybe, you'll find that perfect name that you can agree on with one of the lists below!
