It has been another week filled with bold, even brash names for newborn boys. Girls’ names are no less daring, with inspiration coming from the worlds of opera and automobiles.
None of the boys’ choices would have been recognizable as given names two hundred or even fifty years ago. The girls’ names have more history, but they still feel fresh and surprising in 2013.
With all of these headline-grabbing given names, does it make it harder or easier to name a child of your own?
Pretty much everybody knows someone named John.
Backed by its rich history and plenty of timeless appeal, this all-time favorite enjoyed its moment of baby-name stardom, gaining a measure of glitz and glamour thanks to high-profile hotties John Travolta, John Cusack, and Johnny Depp, along with celebrity parents like Michelle Pfeiffer, Bono, and Rob Lowe all named their sons John.
Yet after dropping out of the Top 25 this year for the first time in recorded baby name history, John seems destined to keep sliding.
Which leads us to ask: what, exactly, is its future? What newer, more timely forms are taking the place of the original? And what made John such a classic to begin with?
