For First Time Mary Not Among Top 100 Names For Girls In USA

and with 60 million Catholics that is sort of sort of depressing!! Lot more here.

Catholics in the USA should adopt the Polish practice of 'name-day', the feast day of the Saint you are named after.

Bigger than a birthday, you have a party, presents, the lot.

In over five years' teaching in Poland, I have not met anyone with a non-Christian name.
