More on the "meshugaas in our community"

While we'd like to claim that the following article in the AJN this week was inspired by our 'classic' post 2 years ago, we can't. After all, the AJN has been listing names by popularity for years. However, while we see that the craze of lumbering kids with outlandish and strange (and often embarrassing tags hasn't diminished, it was nice to see a few good old traditional Jewish names (mainly for boys, mind you) on the list.


  1. Interesting. The top five boys' names in Melbourne are either Biblical or variations of Biblical names, but none of the girls' names. Even in Sydney four of the five top boys' names are Biblical. The only vaguely-Biblical girls' name on either list is Gabriella.
