I hope I wasn't the person that made you start this thread
I just noticed that in another post I referred to you as MrBlanche, but now I will remember to capitalize the R or use all lowercase like your forum name actually looks lol.
Since you guys are talking about popular names...I want to say that I think everyone for some reason named their child, if it was a girl, (I'm exaggerating a bit) Amanda back in the 80's. In every single one of my classes in high school and middle school there were at least three of us per classroom. That got a bit annoying. Wish I would've kept going by Mandy all along. My dad says he named me after the waylon jennings song rather than the Boston song (I think thats the other band that had an "Amanda" song) so maybe I'm special from the other ones that were in my class in that regard lol
