Turns out that the name, at least according to this article, is not just popular, but the most popular boy's name of the year. Even his middle name is #33.
Amusingly, this seems to be a family curse. My parents named me Heather for a number of reasons, but again popularity was not one of them. They were even asked if I was named after the daughter of the mayor of Chicago, who was apparently the bellwether of that trend.
Anyway. *shudder* I'm going to have to apologize to him for the dozen others he knows with his name someday. Or come up with a good nickname and pretend that was the plan all along.
