We are expecting a girl in December. We thought we had the perfect name picked out for our little darling: Easton Brennan LastName. We loved that Easton is not expected for a girl and Brennan is my best friend’s last name. Our son Nash Anderson‘s middle name is my husband’s last name.

Then Kim and Kanye have to go and get pregnant! It’s rumored their boy will be named Easton and I just can’t get over it! Our kids will be born at similar times and I don’t want announce that my new baby has the same name as this celebrity babe.

The problem is we can’t agree on other names! I like Vivi, but it’s so common.

Help! I want something as fun and unique as Nash!

There’s a lot of buzz in the baby name world right now around the name Atlas. In 2013 Atlas came in at #789, the most popular that this name has ever been in the United States! Atlas is a word name for a book of maps, as well as the name of a Greek God. Actress Anne Heche used the name Atlas for one of her sons. I expect to see this name rise in the coming years.

names that start with D and E

The Nameberry 9 by Abby Sandel of Appellation Mountain

From Alexander to Alivia, the letter A has dominated baby names in recent years.

This past week was different.  Could we be ushering in a new era of D and E names?  Or is it just coincidence that three celeb birth announcements for baby boys started with the letter D this week?

With favorites like Ella and Emma, it comes as no surprise that the letter E is currently the fifth most popular letter for girls’ given names in the US.  For boys, D ranked #5 last year (behind J, A, C, and M) while E came in at #8.

What does that mean for expectant parents?  If you’re after a truly stand-out name, it might be worth considering a lesser-used initial, like H, T, O, or F.  Alternately, a really unusual name, like Avalon or Arden, isn’t so strange when lots of little girls are answering to Ava and Allison.

D and E names could hit that sweet spot – familiar, but not overused.  Or they could be catching on, ready to eclipse A in the next few years.

Now, on to those great D and E baby names in news:

celebrity baby names

Not that this is something completely new.  After all, way back when, Diane Keaton named her daughter Dexter Dean, Kelsey Grammer had girls called Spencer and Mason, and Miley Cyrus’s parents named their next daughter Noah.  But lately the trend of celebrities giving their female offspring completely male— not unisex— names has been wildly escalating.  Here are some of the most extreme gender-benders. (And if you haven’t already, be sure to check out our great new graphic showing just where every unisex name stands on the boy-girl spectrum.)
