Baby Names 2012

For the new year, we thought it would be fun to ask you to post the new baby names 2012 you’ve heard or see lately, on babies or in movie credits or in the newspaper or even new choices you’ve encountered on Nameberry.

We think we’ve heard them all…..until we encounter a new name, which seems to happen every other day.  We’re always adding new names to Nameberry.

Some recent name sightings that were new to us and that we added to Nameberry: Avdel, an Old Testament name that means “servant of God,” and Roreto, an Italian place-name a Berry used for her son and enlightened us about. Tomorrow, we’ll bring you a longer list of the new baby names 2012 we’ve added to Nameberry.

What new names have YOU encountered?  Where did you find them?  And what if anything can you tell us about them?

And speaking of newness, we want to try something new with the Question of the Week: We’re going to post the baby-naming question of a Nameberry visitor in this space and let all the berries chime in with their answers.  It’s kind of like asking a baby name question in the forums, except more publicly:  Be prepared for a flood of opinions!

If you’d like your Baby Name Question to be considered for the Question of the Week, please send it to pam@nameberry.com.  Sorry, questions cannot be answered individually.
