15 Baby Names on the Verge of Extinction

Baby Names on the Verge of Extinction

Gary was widely trumpeted this week as being a name on the brink of extinction, but with 442 baby boys named Gary in the US in the most recent year counted, the reality is: Far from it.

But there are other names, once popular, with centuries-deep roots, that truly are about to become extinct.  These 15 names were given to only five babies each in 2013, the lowest number counted by the Social Security Administration.  Once usage dips below that, they become the dodo birds of baby names.

How to Handle All That Unsolicted Parenting Advice You’re Getting


If you’ve ever let an insensitive comment about your pregnancy or your parenting style instantly throw you into a bad mood, you’re definitely not alone. During both of my pregnancies, I’d say that was probably a daily event. Yep; it seems that just about anyone who’s either visibly pregnant or toting a baby around is fair game for loads of unsolicited advice – from friends, relatives, and even total strangers. But no matter who’s doling it out or why, it’s always tough to acknowledge someone’s good intentions while mentally rejecting his or her suggestion in the back of your mind.

So how do you deal? For me, I always try to remember that however frustrating, most of this advice is well-intentioned. Caring people generally want to “regift” their own parenting stories into a nugget of advice as a solution to your current situation (fussy infant, pregnancy heartburn, dream feed… you name it.).
