Category: baby name Giovanna
Lately when I hear a birth announcement, I’ll sometimes find myself thinking: “Oh, what a nice, normal name.”
This is madness, of course. Because there’s no such thing as a normal name.
If last week’s baby name news was all about modern classic picks for boys, this week goes to the girls.
When I look at the list, I think this: we talk about names. We discuss their history and associations, their meanings and use.
But do we really fall in love with sounds? I’m drawn to the lilting l and the vibrant long a, the sharp v and the cool oo.
