I think Jesse is for boys, not girls. I think Shannon is a girl's name. I think Taylor for girls and Tyler for boys.
2. What is a recent naming trend that you absolutely hate?
I hate last names as first names. McKenzie, Spencer, Raegan, etc. I also hate "Hey, Alison is such a common name, I'm naming my kid Allycin!" as if spelling it different means only she will turn around when you yell it. I also really do not like place names (Savannah, Sydney, Brooklyn), but that's not really a recent trend.
