I don’t know how I feel about this….

The baby name site Nameberry came out with its list of top baby names for 2015 today.

Lachlan is No. 3 for boys. Austin is No. 2. You know where this is going, right? 

Kai came in on top.

Two things, though.

First of all, baby name sites? I don’t know.

Second of all, from the Marketplace Desk of Get Over Yourself: the Social Security Administration is pretty much the baby name database of record in this country.

It has me listed in 177th place as of 2014.
