Whatever happened to Bob, Dick, Jim, George and Joe? Whatever happened to Mary, Rebecca, Elizabeth, Susan and Margaret? I am not thinking of different people, I am just wondering about the different names that people choose for their kids.

Each year it seems as if couples are coming up with unusual names and I think, “Where did they come up with that name?”

Now I don’t have room to say anything because my first two daughters got more non-traditional names, but my last two children got more common monikers.
