The report mentions many names are made-up now, which is fine, if it sounds out easy, but on the list in gurgle.com, they go all over the place. It appears parents are keeping up with the trends, and trying to be more different, seems more the case.

It must be trying for school teachers, unless they are one of the younger teachers, who have a made-up name too.
