Elliot vs. Nick

I came across this clip from "The Sure Thing" and was startled by the baby-name discussion.

When this movie came out (1985), Elliot was considerably less popular than it is today. After climbing the charts over the years, it's probably lost some of its perceived dweebiness.

Nick, on the other hand, has moved in the opposite direction. As I've discussed before, it's gone from being a tough-guy name to something more neutral (and at worse, slightly dorky).

So perhaps it's too soon to judge George. Who knows what people will think of it in a generation?
