Thanks! Its a custom in Greece to give your kids the name of your parents or in-laws. As a result, names such as Maria and George self-replicate, and account for the lion's share. Fortunately, a lot of younger couples are rediscovering older names. I personally used the loophole of giving both my kids two names, one from my parents / in-laws and one my Mrs and I really liked. So we didn't break the hearts of our folks and also gave our kids names we liked too :-)
