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.

baby name Jett

By Linda Rosenkrantz

Back in the 1930s and 40s, girls’ names ending in the feminissima French suffix “ette” were the cat’s pajamas. There were glamorous movie stars named Claudette, Paulette and Jeanette, and lots of little girls dubbed Annette and Nanette. But now a funny thing has happened on the way to the nursery: the final ‘e’ has disappeared and suddenly ‘ett’ is one of the hottest endings for boys.

In the recently released list of top names on Nameberry so far this year, there were three two-syllable ‘ett’ boys in the Top 45—Emmett, Everett and Beckett, while also high up on the national list were Bennett, Garrett and Barrett—and if you throw in the single syllable Jett, Rhett and Brett, and sharing the double ‘t’ Wyatt and Elliott, you’ve got the makings of a full soccer team.

It was really tough winnowing down this list and saying goodbye to some worthy examples with too-common names (Andy Hardy, George Bailey in It’s a Wonderful Life, Bogart’s Rick in Casablanca, Clint Eastwood’s Dirty Harry); plus over-the-top baddies like Travis Bickle, Norman Bates and Hannibal Lector– and a goofball namesake like Austin Powers. But here are a dozen great names of great characters.

Baby Name Inspiration: Naia, Noa, and Jett


The Nameberry 9 by Abby Sandel of Appellation Mountain

Royals are out, television characters are in.

No, that’s not it.

Celebrities are out.  Family names are in.

As we look back at baby name news from 2013 and ponder what’s to come in 2014, it is tempting to wrap it all up in a few sentences.  But names are as diverse as the children who wear them.

Baby naming in our age is creative, and we’re welcome to find inspiration anywhere, borrowing and reinventing until we find the perfect name.

By Abby Sandel of Appellation Mountain–The Nameberry 9

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?
