Oliver has been a popular choice for boys in the U.S. lately—it's been in the top 100 names for the past 5 years, and is now 52nd in the U.S. (Across the pond in the U.K., it's the second most popular name!) It means olive tree, a traditional signifier of peace (think of extending the olive branch). It's a name that feels fresh and friendly—and hasn't been quite overdone here (at least, not yet!).
In all, Oliver Finlay Dallas is a pretty fabulous baby name!
Tell me: What do you think of Ginnifer and Josh's choice? Are either of those names on your short list?
