The Top Ten
1 John

There are a lot of people named John. I know a lot of people whose name is John. But overused or not, it is a nice name.

I'm glad this is number 1. I hear that name EVERYWHERE I go! It's everywhere. And it just won't go away.

John is a very popular name. I know a lot of people named John.

I know 3 guys in real life and they're all named John.

2 Jack

A Jack is something I use to lift up my car when changing the tire. It is also a nickname for John.

It's overused because people (like me) like this name.

My name is Jack!

Same here. Love it. Jack Frost, Jumpin Jack Flash, Jack be Nimble, Jack and the Beanstalk,

3 Emily

34. Are you joking? How is this no higher? This is the most common girl's name (possibly NAME) at my school!

There are at least six Emilys in my grade! We have to call them by their initials!

10 Sophia

Oh my gosh yes! I can name 5 Sophias/Sophies Off the top or my tongue. And trust me, if I took the time to rly think about it I could probably come up with at least 12.
But I get why it's overused. I love the name Sophia. If it wasn't so overused I'd probably decide right now to name my future daughter Sophia

My name is Sophia and I can't go anywhere without someone else called Sophia walking near me.

Hell, I know exactly 26 Sophia's! 2 in my family. I've been to 3 states in the U.S.
