Picking a name for your new born baby can be a difficult decision. For some, the decision is about honoring family, while for others it's about uniqueness.

24/7 Tempo just released its list of the 2020 most popular baby names from around the country, and the one thing I'm seeing is that we are all thinking alike.

Gone are the days when the boys were named Tom, Dick or Harry. (That was my dad's favorite list of names to use when he was talking about random people) You'd even be hard pressed to find girls named "Karen" these days, as somehow that name has become a definition or a punchline more than a name.
