Name Sage: A Sister for Rex and Leo

Lauren writes:

Our two little fellows, Rex, 3, and Leo, 18 months, will have a little sister later this year.

Our Hungarian last name is rather challenging to spell and difficult to pronounce, so we like the idea of keeping her name easy to read and say.

I like shorter, feminine, vintage names like Rose, Polly, and Milly, while my husband seems to lean towards more traditional names like Emily and Elizabeth.

We both love names that can transition easily to cute nicknames like Cece, Coco, and Milly, although this isn’t a must.

Whew! Hope this little girl isn’t as high maintenance as we’re making her name!

A is the most popular letter for girls’ names, including Top Tens Ava and Abigail, plus Avery, Amelia, Aubrey, Addison, and fast-climbing newcomer, Aria.


Longtime Nameberry favorite Beatrix doesn’t rank in the US Top 1000. Beatrice is Nameberry’s Number 34, but comes in at a mere Number 601 in the US.

by Kara Blakley

Name trend watchers are no longer limiting themselves to the waxing and waning popularity of certain letters. Vowels are certainly having their moment on monogrammed onesies, but endings (particularly -o and -ett) and sounds are catching the attention of keen observers.

Recently, Brooke Cussans wrote about PERfect names: a wonderfully diverse list of names all sharing the PER syllable.I was inspired to create a list of VER names, and found that like PER, this sound leads to a diverse list of names that are fresh and vibrant. VER names are so plentiful, in fact, that the list is divided into girls and boys. This is the girls list; stay tuned for a boys version.

Adelaide or Adeline?

By Brooke Cussans, Baby Name Pondering

Both Adelaide and Adeline are beautiful, classic sounding names that have been gaining popularity for the past decade. Although similar, they are also distinct enough that it’s very possible they would both appear on many people’s lists. So how do you choose if you are partial to both? Sometimes it helps to look at them side by side.

Origin and Meaning

Meanings can carry aspirations for our children, or be a way to honour someone or something we love, while origins can be a way of honouring a particular heritage or your ancestry.

Adelaide — Adelaide has quite the European heritage. She’s German, originally Adalheid from the words ‘adal heid’, meaning ‘noble kind’. In Adelaide‘s original context, noble was meant to denote that someone was highborn. These days though we’re more likely to associate nobility with the virtue.
