Have you noticed that most of the up-and-coming female stars in Hollywood have ordinary names like Anne
—while many of the hot young Hollywood hunks have unusually interesting and cutting-edge appellations like Chord and Chace
? Most of them are their actual birth names—and a few have already had an influence on baby naming. Here are the most noteworthy–providing some great eye candy as well.
We were admiring the name Calliope the other day (yes, after all these years, we still love names enough to sit around and think about how much we like them) and we started thinking: What a good name for a musician to choose for her child.
Whether or not you’d name a baby after your profession in real life, it’s a fun thing to consider.
So many great occupational names are in play now, from Archer to Gardener to Sailor.
And then there are names like Calliope that connect to something related to your profession. A landscape architect might name a daughter Flora, for instance, or a writer might choose the name Penn.
