I love vintage names and how beautiful is Clara? I remember watching an episode of Gilmore Girls a while ago and one of the characters names was Clara, I fell in love with it right away :)

Great post and I love that name website.

Alice was out of style? Oh. Wait, does this mean there's going to be a bunch more of us around now?

I love the name Jasper and I know an adult named Amelia. One of my daughters has the middle name Alice. it is interesting that names run in cycles like this.

I like the name Hazel. I just found out that was my paternal grandmother's middle name. Wish I would have known that 9 months ago!! ;)
