boys by any other name

Laurel and I have been volunteering at our church nursery for around seven years now and yesterday I worked both morning and evening. I must say that if you want to find a group of Jacobs, Michaels, Joshuas, Matthews, or other names that show up on the list of popular baby names, then our church is not the place to visit.

Instead, among the boys yesterday, we had Hezekiah, Joost, Micah, Judson, Gresham, Zane, Bradley, and Israel. I think those are really cool names and these guys, growing up, are not likely to get lost in a crowd.
