I’d be remiss if I didn’t at least mention that the Social Security Administration released it’s name data for 2011 on Monday. When I have my act together I like to do a whole post about the year’s name haps. This year, not so much.

You might have been guessing that Pippa made her first ever US chart debut thanks to Ms. Middleton, but you’d be wrong.
In fact, Juniper is the sneaky popular name out of our girls, finally breaking into the charts at 970 this year. I saw it coming a couple years ago when we (gasp!) met another Juniper at a Chick-Fil-A play area. It’s been all over the name blogs and message boards lately, and, well, it is a pretty spectacular name if I do say so myself. I can hardly blame those 262 moms for wanting to give it to their baby girls, can I?
