What up, '90s kids? Or, more specifically, what up, kids born in 1990 who are now 25-year-olds?

If you were born in 1990 and if your parents are trendy, chances are you have one of these names. That, or your best friend has one of these names. (In case you were wondering, the name of yours truly is NOT on this list. I'm all about that individuality, baby.)
