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.

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

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

My name is Jack!

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

I remember there were 12 Emily's when I was in elementary school.

5 Sarah

It's really common because there are 7 people in my grade with this name.

9 Jackson

Andrew Jackson was one of our worst US presidents. Don't see why people are naming their children after him.

P.S Jackson is a last name not a first name

Annoying little baby name.
