Saddle up and enjoy some names for the equine enthusiast!
Horses are considered one of the world’s most beautiful and beloved creatures. I remember the thrilling feeling of freedom I felt my first time riding a horse. There is something spiritual and intuitive about these majestic beings that we as humans really connect to.
Whether you love riding, racing, or just enjoying the beauty of these glorious animals, I’ve got some names for you!
The 1992 film became a cult favorite and the pseudonyms are now legendary. But in real life, using colors as names for boys is anything but cool.
Naming your son after a color has completely fallen out of fashion in the United States. With girls, it’s increasingly popular to pick something like Violet, Ruby or Hazel. Boys, though, have been left out of the visible spectrum.
It wasn’t always this way.
As with the girls’ names, these names share much beyond their potential popularity. Most are ancient names, slumbering for centuries. While they hail from a range of cultures, a quorum are rooted in Ancient Rome or mythology. And as has been the trend with boys’ names, how they end — in n, r, us, or o — seems to be more important to their fashion status than their first initial.
Here, 9 unusual boys’ names we see ready to pop.
My week has been defined by two failures: first, I have not managed to see the big screen adaptation of What to Expect When You’re Expecting. I’m not anticipating cinematic greatness, but I’m willing to sit through ninety minutes of movie for a few minutes’ worth of baby name talk. There must be at least a dozen infants in the flick! And yet, I know the names of not a single one.
Failure the second: I devoured A Discovery of Witches instead of saving it for my four-hour airplane trip later this week. Yes, it is a supernatural romance featuring vampires. No, it is not Twilight. Deborah E. Harkness slips in a few seriously killer lines about given names, so that made up for my lack of a rom-com baby name fix.
Happily, it was also a week packed with lots of new arrivals, plenty of them with newsworthy names. And yes, both Witches and Expecting managed to rank among the most intriguing appellations, too.
Ysabeau – Okay, A Discovery of Witches has been on the bestsellers list for months, but with the sequel set for a July release, maybe Ysabeau will get some more press. The main witch is Diana, and her love interest is Matthew. Ysabeau – a medieval forerunner of Elizabeth – is Matthew’s ancient vampire maman. Her full, and fabulously French name is Genevieve Melisande Helene Ysabeau.
