Default What happened to traditional names?

My buddy is having a boy and was asking friends what to name him. Names were being dropped like Micah, Boulder, Omega, Orion.....
Not that those names aren't cool but what happened to traditional names? Are we affected so much by pop culture that we name our kids weird names just to be different?

My son has 60+ kids in his class does not have 1 David, Christopher, or Michael. Not even a firend with those names. Imagine that.

Maybe people are bored with Christian names?

Also, isn't Micah a Jewish name? So that's a traditional name, just not Christian.

People are using names as a way to express their personal creativity, it seems like, which is great for the parent, and not so great for the kid who's gonna be saddled with that name for life.
