Utah’s Most Popular BABY NAMES in 2023 are…
Back in the 1930's parents used to look at their baby and go "Conrad!"
Then the wife would say: "I wanted to go with Albert, but you know Horace!" And everybody would laugh because they in fact did know Horace, and he was a complete B-hole.
Nowadays the women choose the names and it's funny because they are reverting back to older sounding names.

Utah gets a bad rap for naming their kids because all of these names seem pretty normal. Sure we all know some "Kestybules" or some "Lynnoliums" but for the most part, I think even the crazies are opting for names like Hudson these days and we're all better off because of it.
