Our newest crop of baby names 2013 are a modern mix of ancient and contemporary. They include the name of the year’s coolest car made famous by an early electrical inventor, a name shared by this season’s hottest baseball player and a soldier in David‘s Biblical army, and a zippy new nickname for a classic Top 10 girls’ name.
The baby names 2013 newest on Nameberry are:
Yasiel or Jasiel
Yasiel is gaining a following thanks to superstar baseball player Yasiel Puig, a Cuban native who plays for the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Biblical Yasiel, which can also be spelled Jasiel, was a warrior in David's army. About 100 baby boys were given the name in both spellings in the US last year, a number that is expected to rise.
