This week, for her Nameberry 9 picks, Abby Sandel of Appellation Mountain, looks ahead to some baby names of 2013, as well other names that made the news.
As 2012 draws to a close – the year of Blue Ivy and a girl named Maxwell Drew – we’re all wondering what’s ahead.
Make no mistake, 2012 was a great year for baby names, but 2013 should be even more exciting. There’s the royal baby, and now an American dynasty is expecting a new addition. Jenna Bush Hager, daughter and granddaughter of two US presidents, is due next year, and given her family’s habit of passing down relatives’ names, it should make for a great birth announcement.
Add in Shakira – what will she name her first? – and Camila Alves – will she and Matthew come up with another v-name for baby #3? – and there’s no shortage of news expected next year.
