Stanley Lieberson

The media and external events affect fashion - but not in the way we imagine. Instead, trends and tastes change gradually due to internal influences regardless of external influences. Therefore, to understand why a specific taste developed, we must always look for both sources of influence. Study up on the topic. Make sure you research the current name trends thoroughly if you're planning on giving your child an uncommon name - otherwise, you might feel surprised when the "uncommon" name you chose is no longer so uncommon.
