I'm a little torn on this one.  I have learned to love the name Dorian.  It is who I am but I remember growing up spelling it every time I met someone and begin called...Dorothy, Gloria, Doreen, etc and I must say until you grow up it is annoying. That said I am feeling the future pain of all the little Azariahs out there and quite a few of the rest of the most popular baby names so far this year.  They include names inspired by a beloved literary character, a historic president and a new pope; the name of a cuddly animal and a term for a laid-back attitude.

The top 10 of 2013 (so far):

  1. Azariah
  2. Bear
  3. Declan
  4. Ellison
  5. Emrys
