I certainly don't want to offend anyone, as names are very personal and meaningful to those who choose them. I've kinda been out of the loop for awhile, as I've been living among French speakers for the last seven years (the big trend here these days is to give English names like Joey, Jessica, Mike, etc...instead of tradition French names). I am a bit shocked and disappointed to see that it is becoming rare among my fellow Americans of my generation to give Christian or saints names. It seems that in the effort to be different, everyone is really just the same making up names or using last names as first, etc.. Anyone still interested in honoring those great heros of the past? What are some of the more traditional names you are using?
