What's in a name?

I stumbles across this article today which talks about the most common names for babies in Queensland this year. I always find these lists interesting. As a high school teacher I often seen waves of popular names come through on the class rolls 12 years after they were popular. It's also interesting which names stick around, and which ones vanish for years or decades on end.

I also saw this New Zealand article which talks about which names were rejected (although none in Queensland last year). Some of those just boggle my mind...

What do you think about common or more rare names?
