you know how you read those lists of the top baby names of the year but they're for all of the US or all of Canada? (or is it just me reading lists of baby names? ha) well, a friend of mine recently told me that BC (and probably other provinces too) posts ALL the names of babies every year and the NUMBER of each name! how great is that? a much more accurate reading on whether your kid will have to go by their last initial in their kindergarten class or not. :) it looks like ben will - apparently, there were 195 Benjamins in BC in 2009 and 210 Benjamins in 2010! but it's a pretty interesting list to go through. click here to check it out.
