So many short names for girls this year! I like a nice short and sweet name for a girl (hi, Lena, nice to meet ya).

But, having grown up with a short name, I always yearned for a looooong four syllable name, perfect for lots of nicknames.

I do love the unique spelling of a lot of those girl names, though.

And for the boys...

1. Liam

2. Jackson

3. Noah

4. Lucas

5. Logan

6. Oliver

Zayn apparently moved up 33 places from last year — hence my One Direction comment, seeing as Liam is also at the top. While Harry didn't make the list there are a lot of classic old-timey boys names like Theodore and Henry.

Is your name on the list? Any names you love or hate?! Let us know your thoughts.


Here's What's Open & What's Closed On Labour Day In Montreal

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

Yes, it's a long weekend! Three uninterrupted days to relax, have fun, and not think for two seconds about things like school or work, or other responsibilities until Tuesday morning. Not to be too depressing but it will be six weeks before we get another official long weekend. 

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.

We see them every day doing their very best to make us late to work and to destroy our wheels so it's about time we give them some love!
