The recession has been a tough time for many people. Many people are out of work and have had to make some difficult decisions in order to stay afloat. One of the things that often gets blamed on the recession is the naming habits of parents. The most popular names from 2008 were Jacob, Michael, Joshua, Matthew, Ethan and Tyler – all very traditional names with long histories. But after 2009 parents began choosing more unique or unusual names like Bailey, Noah or Liam which means those kids will be starting school in 2025 still struggling with letters and numbers while their peers who were given more traditional childhood monikers are just getting ready for college!

If you’re looking for relief from any financial issues this article might not help but at least it can show you that you’re not alone.
What are some reasons the recession might have something to do with naming trends? Well, when people feel less economically secure they often want to try and provide a sense of security for their children by giving them more traditional names instead of ones which sound like a cartoon character or trendy celebrity (for example: Landon). And because these parents who fear economic instability – likely don’t make as much money and can barely afford diapers let alone college tuition- it’s no surprise that many would choose such an option.
First off, here is the list of top 100 baby girl names in 2008: Abby, Emma, Sophia, Isabella, Ava , Hannah etc.. But then 2009 came around and the list was entirely different: Harper, Riley, Quinn , Logan.
So what are the reasons that naming trends might be to blame for our recession? Let’s take a look at nine of them and see if you can figure it out on your own!
– On January 20th 2008 Barack Obama became president of the United States – shortly after his inauguration came the devastating economic downturn in September 2008 with high unemployment rates and no sign of recovery. In other words, people felt less secure about their financial situation (and childrens) so they started picking more traditional names for their kids instead of trendy ones which have nothing to do with security. This is just one example where we may not know all the facts but there seems to be a correlation between security and popularity of certain names.
– Another example is the economic crisis in Europe. In 2015 it was found that Greece, Portugal, Italy, Ireland and Spain (all have high unemployment rates) were all countries with much more popular first names than average for those specific regions. Especially when you look at how different they are from other countries: people living in Norway or Iceland prefer traditional Nordic names like Maria whereas Italians usually pick fashionable international ones like Olivia . It’s interesting to see how sometimes we can find patterns even if we don’t know for sure what causes them!
– The third reason might be because now there’s less time spent on TV watching TV shows about puppies – this could lead to higher levels of stress
“Paw Patrol is the No. 17 most popular show on television, with an average viewership of 600,00 kids per episode.”
A recent report by Nickelodeon and Nielsen revealed that Paw Patrol was just behind Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in terms of popularity for preschoolers aged two to five years old. The show’s success has had a profound economic effect: $37 billion from licensed merchandise sales since the TV series began airing in 2013. In addition to toys and clothing, there are now more than 100 different versions of Paw Patrol vehicles available at Walmart alone — including one called “Hurricane Heatwave Fire Truck” which costs upwards of $150 dollars. And earlier this year, Spin Master Toys released a
– Children naturally want more and don’t know the value of money.
– The media influences children to think they need a lot.
– Parents buy their kids what they believe is necessary so that their child will be happy.
– They may not realize how much it costs until later on when the bills come in, but by then it’s too late because mom and dad are broke from trying to please them with anything possible as well as buying things for themselves just to make sure they have food on the table or gas in the car.
– There are commercial breaks every few minutes which tell you about all these “amazing” products (that most likely aren’t) at such a low price point – people still buy them, whether they have money or not.
– The culture of “keeping up with the Joneses” is still prevalent in society and can create a sense that all this stuff is worth it because everyone else has it just as bad – but what people don’t realize is how much debt their neighbors are in from trying to keep up too.
– Income inequality creates stress for many Americans who live paycheck to paycheck. When there’s an economic downturn, those on lower salaries are more likely to feel the effects first; meanwhile those at higher levels may be able afford things like vacations which others can’t even think about taking time off work for without getting fired.”..our economy isn’t built so that most families make it through hard times without hardship or suffering.”
– As people continue to feel the effects of a recession, it’s very easy for them to get discouraged and give up hope. One way that banks try to keep customers coming back is by giving credit cards with cash rewards programs where you earn points on every purchase – which could still lead people into deep debt if they’re not careful how much they spend each month.
– This was the first time in decades that many Americans were faced with uncertainty about their future because of an economic downturn; this mindset can be dangerous when it turns negative as we tend to blame others for our own difficulties rather than take responsibility ourselves.. “We’re increasingly insecure financially, but also socially and politically,” says Dr. Martin Seligman, a professor of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania and author of Authentic Happiness (2002). After decades in which most Americans took it for granted that they would have more than their parents had when they were growing up, “the generational hand-me-down has been interrupted,” he said. “We’re not handing on anything.” – It’s also hard to get ahead because wages are stagnant while prices go up: The median wage was lower last year than 40 years ago after you adjust for inflation..
