'Reagan' - A fine name, but as a christian name?

Ronald the Great's surname was the 80th most popular name for girls born in the US last year, apparently (regn. required).

Four of the leading five - Sophia, Isabella, Emma, Madison (another highly rated President, but also the name of a number of towns) and Ava are more conventionally feminine sounding.

As to chaps, all the rage are Aiden, Ethan, Jacob, Jayden and Caden. Each to their own I suppose. Only the top ten names have been available, but in 2006 William (a fine name...) made #25.

Much as there is a total absence of Wongs called Suzie these days, Britney did not feature in 2006, and presumably not in 2007.

At least none of the girlies have been called Ronald(a).

Regan, Goneril & Cordelia - the last J Selwyn Gumma's liw girl.

if you ever pass by Beijing, World of Suzie Wong's is a fine bar/nightclub, inhabited by the wealthier local folk and banking expats.

CU - I'll bear it in mind. Cheers. I also hear tales of the Chinese being very good at standing drinks to friendly / respectful gwailos.

Why Aiden, Jayden and Caden? Are they trying to pick names that are easy to rhyme or something?
