My mom gave me two middle names. One is Eric, and the other is the rarely heard name of Rolf. In 54 years I had never met a person named Rolf until I met our General Manager here at Townsquare Media, Rolf Pepple.

I think my first name is fairly rare as well. I can count on one hand the number of Craig's I've met in my life. recently published a list of baby names that are falling out of popularity. So far this year, none of the 200,000 babies born in America have been given these names, rendering them 'endangered':
