Many of these little ones are getting ready to celebrate their first birthday.

Have you ever met someone who didn't want to tell you what they were planning on naming their baby due to fear that you would steal it? It happens more often that you think. The reality is, everyone seems to share a name with someone or, in some cases, some thing.
