Would you name your twins Mia and Mya?

You all know how much I love baby names. The social security administration released the top baby names of 2004 recently and I'd like to talk about a few things I find funny.
  • 2004 was the first year sets of twins were noted separately from the top baby names of the year. 103 sets of twins were names Jacob and Joshua - cheesy if you ask me. But not nearly as confusing as the 13 sets of twins named Mia and Mya. How f-ing confusing would that be? I bet those names are commonly mispronounced which makes the girls essentially have the same name. Weird. Also notable, Jada and Jaden (17 pairs). Funny.
  • Here's the list of top names. My only issue is with #5, Ethan. I think this is a crappy name and only know one person who has it - and someone born in '79 when it was not nearly as popular. Aside from Ethan Hawke, are there any other famous people that make people like this name?
  • Separate from the SSA stats, here's a list of top baby names for sports fans. Funny.
