They say you might have a few things in common with your neighbor. And if you're a parent, one of those commonalities might be your child's name -- no matter how unique you think it is. That's not to say everyone on your block will have a kid running around with your son or daughter's same exact name, but there might be some little person not too far away who does!

Interestingly, names that are rare in the USA overall pop up in certain states in surprising numbers. So Nameberry researchers looked at the baby names given to at least 100 babies in 2015, and the states where those names were most popular.
