Rock stars are infamous for the wide range of names they give their kids, stretching from the ordinary (Harry, Henry, Josh, Jack) to the outrageous (My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way’s daughter Bandit, Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz’s sons Bronx Mowgli and Saint Lazslo).
But there is one group whose members have successfully walked the line between the two extremes and come up with some great, imaginative, but user-friendly, names for their offspring, some of them quite ahead-of-their-time trendsetters.
Choosing a great baby name is a little bit like putting together a puzzle.
This week’s baby names in the news – and my, it was a busy week – all share a certain pattern.
Start with a recognizable, but not too popular, two-syllable name.
Now calibrate. If the first name is common, make sure the middle name is a real surprise.
