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?
