- 5 Minutes for Books reviewer Lisa
- Church Lisa
- Church Aggie Lisa (an Aggie who has moved here who I met recently at church)
- Bible Study Fellowship Lisa (apparently many Lisas are holier-than-average)
- Neighbor Lisa
- Kyle's preschool-friend's-mom Lisa, who until this year would have been up on that top list.
Throughout my growing-up-years, there were always lots of Jennifers (and I don't recall so many Lisas). The personalized craze was big in the early 80's, and could I ever get a pair of shoelaces or a mirror with my name on it? No sirree. They were always sold out. In fifth grade, there were three of four of us, in the same class. Right before we moved here, there were four or five of us in the same adult Sunday School class.
But then we moved to Connecticut. And I was the only one. Oh, I heard of Jennifer's out there, and they still abounded in the blogosphere, but I had no competition in my immediate circles.
But this year, that all changed. Of the 17 children in Kyle's class, four of them have moms named Jennifer. That's almost 25%.
So although there may be loads of Lisas, there are apparently jillions of Jennifers.
What about you? How common or uncommon is your name? How do you feel about that? Let's see what this unofficial blog-comment survey reveals.
