meaningful monikers

By Abby Sandel

There are so many ways to give your child’s name meaning.

An old standard can be meaningful, if John is named after your grandfather or Mary after a beloved friend.

Some of most interesting baby names in 2015 are rich with significance. They evoke peace or grandeur, music or the arts or faith.

High profile parents love these names, but this trend is not exclusive to Hollywood. Chances are that any playground will have at least one Lyric or Grace, Kingsley or Haven.

Everyone knows the story of Cinderella.
