Jayden Isabella

If you had a baby
And you live in New York City,
Likely he’d be Jayden,
Which would really be a pity.

Eight hundred other newborns
All were given that same name.
Originality might not be
Jayden’s claim to fame.

For New York City baby girls,
The top choice on the list
Was Isabella, now that Ashley’s
Somehow been dismissed.

When parents agonize to pick
A name they find unique,
It really has to put a crimp
In part of that mystique

When, on the playground, they call
Isabella! or shout Jayden!
And fifty little toddlers
All come saucily paradin’.

I guess those parents might have gone
With Enoch, Oona, Veer;
Those monikers were at the bottom
Of the list last year.

To brand-new parents, though, whose babies’
Lives have just begun,
Their Jayden or their Isabella
Is the only one.

    Very cute, I so think that parents nowadays lack originality in choosing baby names, already giving up their chils right to an individuality.
