Ring out the old, ring in the new—a toast to a fantastic 2013! An auspicious beginning for babies born at this time of year, with its sense of freshness and hope and a new dawn dawning. We’ve split our name suggestions for these new year babes into three parts: names that mean happy, names that mean new, and even a couple that mean year. So put them all together, and you have HAPPYNEW YEAR— our wish for all our Berries and their babyberries!
Beatrice is defined as “she who brings happiness,” a wonderful aura to project onto a little baby Bea. A literary inspiration for Dante and Shakespeare, the classic Beatrice is definitely moving back into popularity. Sister-name Beatrix, as in the name of the creator of Peter Rabbit, is a livelier possibility.
