Before Twin and I started our blog, we would visit others and leave comments along with our names. When we decided to start our own blog, one of the posters said that they had thought previously that we were two little old ladies! Could it be because of our names? We were given our names because of our grandmothers. We had a Grandma Fern and a Grandma Fran. Fern and Fran go together pretty well. No, we're not quite little old ladies, we're in our 40's.
Now you have your names that are passed down from generation to generation, especially male names such as~
It's hard to judge age with those names. For females it may be~
Katherine (Kate Katie)
What age do you think of when you hear names such as Bertha~Helen~Irene? Maybe grandmother age?
What about Barbara~Susan~Debbie? Born in the 40's-60's maybe?
Then you have Shannon~Tiffany~Carrie. Do you think more 70's and 80's?
How about Payton, Preston, Harper, Braydon, Greyson, etc. Is that the new wave of favorites?
While you can't always judge a persons age by their name, they do have a pattern to them. Some old names are coming back such as Jack and Henry. I think just like styles changing in fashion and home decor so do names. You have your staples and your fads.
What do you think your name says about you?
