Funny text about moving to New York City

Got this text from a friend of mine recently. She included a picture that shows the names of people that get the most dates in NYC. Because her name is on the list of girls, she joked that she’s moving to New York. (Names on the list are… guys: Michael, Matt, Ben, Jason, and Simon. Girls: Amanda, Nicole, Jessica, Alexandra, and Katie.)Screenshot_2015-10-02-12-06-09
And here is the list of names…image

Most Popular Names in the U.S.

I came across the Social Security Administration’s list of most popular names of 2014, and I wasn’t very curious if Prettyness made the top anything. I’d guess there are less than 5 people with the name. And if you’re curious, the most popular name for boys and girls that year was Noah and Emma, respectively. Side note: Liam is reigning as #1 for boys in 2015 so far. But certain names instantly make it onto my “Names I’d Name My Kid” list. The most recent being Prettyness. Is it weird? Yes, but I can’t seem to shake it from recurring in my mind, and the more I think about it the more I like it.

I was also curious about the most popular names the year I was born. It was Michael for boys and Jennifer for girls. My mom told me if I were a girl, my name would’ve been Megan, which isn’t one of the top 10 from 1978. Neither is my actual name (it’s #12).

What are some of your favorite names? Feel free to share in the comments below!
