What are the Odds?

Here I was reading a story on Yahoo News about Baby Names, and I see this table:
Most popular boy/girl baby names in 1950:

1. James / Linda
2. Robert / Mary
3. John / Patricia
4. Michael / Barbara
5. David / Susan
6. William / Nancy
7. Richard / Deborah
8. Thomas / Sandra
9. Charles / Carol
10. Gary / Kathleen

I know, you are saying, "So what?" But if you are my family, you are seeing what I'm seeing. My dad's name is #7. And my mom's name was a different spelling of... #7. Seems they were destined to be together!

You are so right! My Dad's name is Max and I'm not sure he's on any name list, but make no mistake, my #4 Momma loves him!

Cool. Looks like my dad was meant to be with someone named Nancy. Mom didn't make the list. Oh, well. Lol

Very interesting...my Dad didn't make the list and my Mom should have ended up with Dad's best friend! LOL..
