Most of the time, their name fits them perfectly. Behind every millennial is a mom with one of these common names.

2. Barbara, AKA Barb

Barb can get a little sassy, especially if she's had a few glasses of wine. Barb loves to laugh and have a good time. Beware: she might steal your clothes from your closet.

3. Jennifer


Jennifer is the hot mom who doesn't look a day over 30. She was popular in high school, and she's still popular now. She's not a regular mom: she's a cool mom.

4. Pam

Pam has the best chocolate chip cookie recipe in town. She loves going to bake sales and antique stores, and she gives great hugs. Pam makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. There's not a mean bone in her body.

5. Michelle

6. Carla

Carla love boat rides and beer. She has at least one shirt with an American flag on it.

11. Kathy/Katherine

Kathy/Katherine is the laid-back mom who would secretly fight anyone that hurt their baby. Don't cross a Kathy/Katherine.

12. Nancy

Nancy sometimes loses her temper and then immediately second-guesses her parenting. It's probably because she's working too hard and not drinking enough wine. Give your mom a break.

13. Mary


Mary is an angel that fell to Earth. There's no way anyone could have beef with Mary. Give Mary a hug; she deserves it.

17. Amy/Aimee

Amy/Aimee never ages. She's fun to be around and has friends of all ages. Amy/Aimee works hard and is successful because of it. If anyone deserves happiness, it's Amy/Aimee.

21. Cindy


Cindy's got an attitude. She might look sweet, but don't let her fool you. Don't bring your boyfriends or girlfriends to meet Cindy unless you're really serious about them, because she might scare them away.

22. Tiffany

23. Carol

Carol is the strict mom who likes to give lectures at every opportunity. Don't be so hard on her though: she means well. Cut your mom some slack, kids.

Dear Mom,

I hope you know that I appreciate you.

You are the hardest working woman I know, continuously putting your family before yourself. Thank you for doing all of the tedious jobs that no one wants to do like keeping the house in order, cooking the food, and doing the laundry. Thank you for constantly putting up with my siblings and I. Thank you for always supporting us in our interests and hobbies. Thank you for investing in our daily lives and listening to our minor problems. Thank you for always loving us unconditionally.

I hope you know I'm sorry.

I know I can be a big pain in the butt sometimes, and for that I'm sorry. I'm sorry for yelling at you, arguing with you, not listening to you, and making dumb decisions at times, but thank you for loving me anyways. Thank you for helping me stand back up, teaching me right from wrong, and pushing me to be the very best version of me.

I hope you know your love inspires me.

You live your life with a love that is contagious. Whether its nurturing love, tough love, friendly love, or romantic love, you have it all and you show it daily. The love you and Dad share is something I hope to find one day and the love you have for your family is evident in the way you constantly put us first.

I hope you know that you are my biggest role model and hero.

Ever since I was a little girl, you have been the person I have looked to in my life. You are strong, independent, confident, loving, supportive, and nurturing-- everything I strive to be as a woman and as a future mother. You give the best advice, even when I don't always take it. Though, I should know better by now because mothers always know best. Without you in my life, I honestly don't know where I'd be.

I hope you know that you are my best friend.

Not only are you my biggest cheerleader supporting me in everything I do, you are the person I talk to about everything, whether it's good or bad. I'm honestly so thankful for the relationship we share because I've had countless screwups and you literally give the best advice. Seriously, thank you for being the person I can count on at all times, at any time of the day or even night to just talk with. I mean we really do have some of the best conversations, best laughs, best cries (when needed), and the most fun watching cheesy chick flicks together or going on crazy shopping adventures.

I hope you know that I am here for you--until the very end.

I don't mean to make you cry or anything -- even though you probably already are, but I want you to know that when the time comes, I'm going to be there for you just like all of these years you've been here for me. I will be there to support you, talk with you, laugh with you, cry with you, and love you for all of my life.

Honestly, I can't really imagine my life without you -- but it doesn't matter because I wouldn't be here without you, so here's to you.

Thank you for being you.

Love you lots!

Your daughter.

To The Step Parents Who Stepped Up

Thank you for loving me like your own.

We have passed Thanksgiving, a time of being thankful for everyone around you, but it is still the holiday season so writing something to thank two very special people in my life seemed necessary.

Growing up you always expect this life with two parents, one home and a golden retriever or something…that is the "perfect life"…right? After thinking that and then realizing that was not true through my parent's divorce I did not know what to expect. When I turned fourteen both my parents got remarried, did I expect that? Absolutely not. Was it one of the best things to ever happen? Absolutely.

Step parents always get this bad reputation, they are controlling or do not like you, they are want to be parents or want you out of the picture. When both my step parents came into my life I realized very quickly that neither or they wanted anything like that, in fact, all they wanted was to make my parents happy. After seeing the happiness they brought my parents how could I resent these people? They never did anything to me, if anything they just made my life easier.

I will start with thank you's to both of them.

To my stepdad, thank you for loving my mom the way you do. Thank you for listening to me and helping me through school and growing up. Thank you for helping me when I backed into the garage door, and when mom was getting on my nerves. Thank you for singing and dancing with me and making me laugh whenever you could. Thank you for attending all my school events. Thank you for acknowledging that my dad is a huge part of my life and not trying to take his place. Thank you for making fun of me, buying me great Christmas gifts and being someone who loves me. But most importantly thank you for taking me in and treating me like your own, when in reality you really never had to.

To my stepmom, thank you for loving my dad the way you do. Thank you for listening to my rants and talking makeup and clothes with me. Thank you for helping me buy gifts for dad, or choosing what eyeshadow to buy. Thank you for going on any adventure Dad and I dragged you on and taking all those pictures (you take a lot). Thank you for acknowledging my mom is a big part of my life and not attempting to take her place. Thank you for cooking my favorite meals when I came over, checking in daily no matter what was going on, and making sure everything was okay. And of course, as I stated above, thank you for taking me in when you never had to and treating me like your own.

Moving forward I do not tell you two enough but you mean the world to me.

You guys have made me realize that stepparents are not always bad people, you have made me realize that the more people who love you the better and you guys have shown me that just because I am not your blood never made me less important. You guys have been such vital parts of my upbringing and have become such vital parts of my life. I want you both to know you are appreciated more than you know, loved more than you know, and bigger parts of my life than you will ever know.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for being the step parents who stepped up.

Love,

The kid you made feel like your own
