    So, what have been the most common names in your classroom over the years? I have had the names Tyler, Jonathan, Samantha, and Brittany the most... Tyler 4x and the other names 3x.

    Alex was a big one last year - boys and girls. I think I had 8 of them among my 3 classes.

    Always have a few Matt's and David's.

    Brittany and Ciara for girls are most popular now.

    I always think this is an interesting question because there are really regional differences. I have always had at least one Daniel, Jasmine, and Gabriella. This year I have 2 Arianna's and 2 Angely's, spelled differently. We have a high Hispanic population - believe it or not I've never had a Tyler.

    We have one Breanna, and one Brianna. To make it worse, one has the last initial of B, and the other has the last initial of V! I'm starting to see some of the older names come back. This year we have a Kate, Seth, Cassidy, Trevor, Jennifer, and Jarvis. Our more "creative" and geographical names include Dakota, Reno, Jamarea, and Erykah.

    In my class of 30, I have 4 Olivia's, 3 Angus's and a Gus and 3 Georgia's. I wondered aloud to my class whether the plural of Angus was Angi, but they didn't get it. A teachable moment to be sure!

    I haven't had many name duplicates, actually. Last year I had two girls named Sabrina, which I thought was very odd since that strikes me as a rather not common name--go figure! There are several Michaels and Christophers at my school, but I only have one Michael in my class. There are several Sydneys, too, but in different grades. I have two variations on Katelyn but the spelling is different. I guess that's a benefit to being at a small school--fewer students means the odds are lower of repeating names?

    Last year I had
    2 Tyler(s) (1 boy/1 girl)
    3 Payton/Petyon(s) (2 boys/1girl)

    This year no repeats in my class: but throughout our 1st grades (7) we have 4 Brooklyns A lot of Matthews and Tyler/Taylor is still very popular
