As a creator of imaginary characters, I think a lot about names, and what is popular and why. And it seems to me that the "new" names I am hearing for 2010 babies tend to be old-fashioned ones. Which I think is terrific, because as the old song goes, "Everything old is new again..."
So I thought I'd throw this out to our YA Fresh friends. Do you know any babies who have been born (or are about to be born) this year? Are you aware of any name trends in your area? And want to share some of their first and middle names? Fun to think and talk about...and you never know, some may show up in my future books!
