Geek Chic: Names that wear glasses

girlglasses

By Pamela Redmond Satran

Have you heard of Warby Parker?  They’re the cool vintage=inspired online eyeglass company that launched a huge trend.  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.  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.

So what are the Geek Chic names that suggest a kid wearing glasses, in the cutest, coolest possible way?  Warby Parker includes some boys’ names that qualify: Boyd, Clyde, Ellsworth, Marshall, Percy, Wilkie, along with one girls’ name that does by a stretch, Mabel.

We have a lot more nominations for Geek Chic names though.  Warby Parker, are you listening?
