Category: baby name Sunday
If you had to pick a day name — for a child, for yourself, for a favorite — which would it be?
We skipped our usual seasonal names blog this summer because we had so much else going on, but we did meet a baby named August, and another named Julia. We’ve been having fun watching the Showtime series Episodes, which features a character named Morning. And on another of our favorite shows, Louie, there was a (not very nice) little boy named Never.
Day names are an ancient tradition in many cultures, most notably African ones where many names are often drawn from the time of day, day of the week, or season that a child is born. Early African-American slave roles contain many Anglicizations of such names, from Monday to Friday, Early to Afternoon, Christmas to Easter.
