I remember when I was a kid and finished the summer reading program at the local library and went to shake the mayor's hand, there was a Kristy Thomas in line ahead of me. I've also known several other Kristys (though with varied spellings of the name) and I've known a few Jessicas and Dawns, too.
My mother's poodle was named Stacey; so was my sister's long-time best friend. My other sister's best friend is named Shannon. A friend of my fiancee's has a son named Logan...
I may have encountered a Claudia, Mary Anne, and/or Mallory in my lifetime, but if so, I can't think of them.
Were they kidding around when they named that girl, Logan? Or is that a legitimate girl's name? Sorry if this is offensive.
Not offensive to me since the girl is kind of a brat ;D I always thought it was one of those either-gender names because I've heard boys and girls named that. Of course, I've also known some boys named Stacey.

I can't picture Logan on a girl. Actually, I can't picture Logan on ANYONE besides Logan Bruno. I seriously thought that name was made up for the BSC, I had no idea it was a real name until a few years ago when it suddenly became popular. Was it on a TV show or something? Cause now I hear of little kid Logans all the time. I think it's weird. All I think of when I hear that name is BSC. Same with Mallory and Dawn and Claudia. Never have known anyone with those names. Kristy, Jessi, Stacey, Abby and Shannon are so common that even if I don't know anyone with those names (never known an Abby), they don't scream BSC to me. But those other ones def do!
I forgot, I do know a Mallory. Kind of. I talked to her today. I also knew one growing up too. Thanks to "Family Ties" it was kinda popular in the 80's. The odds of a girl being named Mallory when Mallory was born (going by when she was supossedly first introduced, which was 86 right? 87?) where very slim

Is Dawn considered an unusual name? I mentioned I've known a few (I can think of at least three) but it doesn't seem like that's one of the more common names people come across. All of the Dawns that I've known are my age or older, so maybe it's just fallen in popularity over the years?
^ My mom's college roommate was named Dawn and I think I've known one or two others. I've known someone with almost every name in the BSC books, I think. I wish they would have more rare and unique names in the books.
