If you've spent any time in elementary schools lately, chances are you know of at least one kid named Olivia. Actually, you probably know at least three Olivias. It's been one of the most popular girl's names for a few years running. Back when you were in elementary school, you probably had a few Laurens, Ashleys, and Jessicas in your class. (Or maybe you were one of those Laurens, forever known solely by your first name and last initial. The struggle was real.)
