Isabella has taken out the number one spot for the most popular girl’s name, up from 4 last year. Many think this rise in name fame is due to the Twilight Phenomenon – what do you think?

This news got me thinking, how do our Springfree Parents choose their kids names? What inspiration or selection criteria did you use? Did you randomly see a name you liked, or did you name them after a family member?

When I asked my mum how she chose my name, she said she liked short and sharp names that can’t be abbreviated hence Erin, Leigh and Adam.
