Rock stars are infamous for the wide range of names they give their kids, stretching from the ordinary (Harry, Henry, Josh, Jack) to the outrageous (My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way’s daughter Bandit, Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz’s sons Bronx Mowgli and Saint Lazslo).
But there is one group whose members have successfully walked the line between the two extremes and come up with some great, imaginative, but user-friendly, names for their offspring, some of them quite ahead-of-their-time trendsetters.
With fewer than ten weeks left in 2014, let’s take a look back at the best of the high profile birth announcements so far.
But there have been some amazing celebrity baby names, stylish choices rich with meaning, unusual names that feel like they’d be wearable in Hollywood or anyone’s hometown.
I couldn’t keep the list to just nine total, so here are my nine favorite celebrity baby names for girls, and nine more for boys – subject, of course, to revision, any time between now and December 31st!
Of course, B hasn’t been in the shadows. You probably know kids called Benjamin and Brayden, Brooklyn, Brianna and Bella. They’re all Top 100 choices. Up-and-comers like Beatrix and Beckett are on the favorites list of many a future parent.
Still, it was a surprise to hear four great B choices in the news this week, all of which could catch on. They were mixed in with lots of intriguing names: a vintage romantic, a pair of Hollywood glam surnames, and a handsome Greek god.
Here are the baby names in this week’s news, brought to you by the letter B and beyond:
Well, summer’s here and with it I have a whole new list of sizzlin’ summer Greek names. In the summertime, there’s swimming, heat, and lots of outdoor fun. Plus, according to an article on livescience.com, summer is the time of year when the most babies are born, with August tending to be the busiest month. That being said, I hope all you expecting moms find a name you like for your little bundle of summer sunshine. Here are some ideas from the ancient Greek pantheon.
Theros — THEH-rohs– Theros is the Goddess of summer in Greek mythology and I think it has a very cool sound, reminiscent of names like Maris. With the long O sound at the end, it could conceivably be a new way to get to the nickname Rose.
