There are so many ways to give your child’s name meaning.
Some of most interesting baby names in 2015 are rich with significance. They evoke peace or grandeur, music or the arts or faith.
The names are popular picks for parents in the 21st century, which is why you’re much more likely to encounter a toddler Owen than one who’s middle-aged.

The legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table represent the essence of chivalry and romantic love. And the names in those tales conjure up images of knights in shining armor, ethereal medieval ladies, the court of Camelot and the heroic quest for the Holy Grail.
These legends have existed for over a thousand years, interpreted by countless writers and poets, including Geoffrey of Monmouth, Crétien de Troyes, Sir Thomas Malory, and Alfred Lord Tennyson and have persisted through such modern interpretations as T. H. White’s The Once and Future King, the basis of the stage musical Camelot, countless films, including the spoof Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and numerous TV shows.
In retrospect, it was so cliché it hurts.
The first real-live hipster I spotted was back in 1997. He was entering a record store (I know, I know…), wearing a mustard colored cardigan, black-rimmed glasses, skinny denim and Chucks.
A lengthy 18 years later and hipster culture has finally spilled over into the mainstream. From Zooey Deschanel’s prime time show, to fast food commercials featuring 20-somethings donning plaid shirts, slouchy hats and handlebar moustaches, the modern hipster style is prominently featured and easily identifiable.
