It’s only been a few weeks, but it feels like high profile parents are following along. Recent birth announcements all reflect the kinds of baby names we expect to hear throughout 2015.
Even if you aren’t crazy about the individual names, there’s some good news here. Parents seem to be losing their fear of giving a “girl” name to a boy. Is it possible that names like Kelly will once again be wearable for our sons?
The rise of short, simple names is another one that will please parents eager to avoid nicknames. Welcome to the world, Tom-not-Thomas, Tess-not-Theresa, and this week’s celebrity entry in the category, Cy, not Cyrus or Cyril or Silas.
We’re just days away from the new year! As 2014 draws to a close, plenty of websites and hospital systems have released their top baby names for the past twelve months.
The official 2014 US data doesn’t come out until May 2015. But this early information lets us read the tea leaves and guess – or hope! – which names might come out on top when we see the official numbers in a few months.
But chances are that if you’re narrowing down a baby name, you’re looking for just one first-middle combination, or maybe a first-middle-bonus middle.
It means that you’ll leave a lot of your favorite names unused, and you might hurt some feelings if your loved ones were hoping for a namesake.
While we look forward to all of next year’s birth announcements, here’s a piece of baby name advice gleaned from this week’s newest arrivals:
Traditional with a twist is a foolproof strategy.
The holiday movie season is always busy, from family-friendly flicks to serious Oscar-worthy dramas.
New movies mean new potential baby names. Don’t believe me? A year ago, we were all queuing up to see the latest Disney animated feature, starring a snow queen with a name that you might have heard ‘round Nameberry in the past twelve months: Elsa.
So let’s go to the movies, and check out the best names on the big screen this winter. From quiet indie flicks to big budget blockbusters, inspiration is as plentiful as the popcorn.
