Category: Cool Baby Names
And no wonder.Â When perusing his shows, the character names range from the classics to the bold.
Hereâ€™s a list of some of the most interesting character names and which show they were featured on.
Angel:Â A vampire with a soul; at least on most episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and her spinoff show, Angel.Â Angelâ€™s real name (pre-vampirism) was Liam. His vampire without a soul name is Angelus.
Have you heard of Warby Parker? Â They’re the cool vintage=inspired online eyeglass company that launched a huge trend. Â And now they’re joined by a host of other geek chic eyewear purveyors, including one for kids called Very French Gangsters, where we found our adorable glasses-wearing model.
But the real point here, as it always is on Nameberry, is names.
I was perusing the wares on Warby Parker the other day when I was distracted by the names of the frames. Â Some embody a lot of geek but not much chic: Fillmore, Digby, and Duckworth. And then there are those like Sloan and Sawyer, Reynold and Larkin, which are chic without the geek.
When I was a child, I had seven childrenâ€¦or so I believed. They may not have actually walked or talked,Â but I loved them unconditionally in spite of these limitations. Some of you international Berries may not know what Iâ€™m talking about, but you American Berries who were children of the â€˜80s and â€˜90s understand what I mean when I say that my Cabbage Patch Kids were my babies. This American line of dolls has been going strong since the late 1970s, each one coming with a unique set of features, clothing, and best of all, birth certificates, complete with first names, middle names, and birth dates. They were, as the legend goes, born in a magical cabbage patch presumably located in some supernatural corner of America that is birthing plastic-headed, soft-bodied babies to this very day.
Sometimes the changes are subtle.Â In the late 1800s, Sallie was more popular than Sally.Â In the 1950s, Kerry, Jimmie, and Lester were ordinary names for little boys, and their sisters were called Toni, Yolanda, and Marlene.
â€¦ it makes sense that we constantly adapt and expand our vocabulary to account for new concepts, events, inventions, etc. For example, we may invent new words, give existing words new meanings, or borrow words from other languages.
