Some of my favorite names are those that come across as modern but end up having a big past. These names hide their age well, giving them versatility.
Simply put, these are old names that sound new. If you are torn between the imaginative and the established, these names could be for you.
There are some weeks when even name mavens like Appellation Mountain‘s Abby Sandel have to dig deep to find nine newsworthy names, but of course Abby always comes through. Here are The Nameberry Nine for this week.
It finally happened. After weeks and weeks of effortlessly identifying nine newsworthy names, this week I was stuck. There were two celebrity births, a nicely named girl and boy, but neither was the newsworthy delight I’d anticipated.
Suddenly I understood the laments of expectant parents everywhere: there are all of these names, nice enough names, but they’re not the right ones for us. It was a Name Drought, a feeling of deprivation in the midst of plenty. While waiting to learn our second child’s gender, I had a similar feeling. We had a girl’s name all set, but if our daughter had been a second son? We might still be calling him Baby.
