My new (half-)nephew was born today: Landon Thomas, to Gracia and my brother Chris.

A friend from high school had twins: Benjamin Eli and Gabriel Ian. Parents are Alexa and Scott.

K-1 Students at Dillo's school (from artwork on the wall; we don't have a directory yet): Elijah, Danny, Marcus, Symone, Nicholas, Michelle, Allyson, Sofia, Baylee, Alice, Blake (f), Burke, Claire, Mekhi, AJ, Dougie, Julian, Andrew, Aubrey, Leo, Rowen (m), Jake, Sydney, Melanie, Liam, Mia, Roman, Audrianah, Jack, Roniya, Kailey.

I am mostly struck by the presence of 3 names that I think of as dating pretty firmly from the 1970s - Michelle, Allyson, and Melanie are all much more common among my peers than Dillo's.

We met the new people in the house around the corner yesterday, and their oldest son, who is the boy's age, has the same name he does -- first peer we've met with the name, though God knows it was common in our parents' generation.

Fortunately, Around The Corner Boy uses the full name, while Son is very firm about being known by the short form.
