To commemorate the beginning of a new year, we offer our annual New Year’s blog, together with our thanks for making nameberry such a thriving community in 2009, and our resolution to make it even better in 2010!
The ringing in of a new year brings with it a sense of fresh beginnings, a new dawn dawning, and bright hopes for the future. And so with that in mind, and with our warmest wishes to all of you for a great year, we offer some names drawn from a variety of cultures that suggest those very things–and all of them appropriate for a New Year’s baby.
NAMES THAT MEAN HOPE
NAMES THAT MEAN DAWN
Another approach, if you’re naming a baby born in the first month of the year, would be to consider one of the diverse names used for the month of January across the world:
CAIT (in Hindi)
MAKARA (means born under Capricorn)
