There was a whole generation of Kylies, and Jasons,
who went through Australian high schools in the late
'80s early '90s, so born in the second half of the
'70s, well before "Neighbours" made those names
popular. Minogue and Donovan were at the start of a
trend but not the cause of it. My elder daughter's
boyfriend is a Jason born in 1969, another early
example of the species.
