The stars, they’re just like us. They shop for groceries. Run out for coffee. And celebrity parents love names with vibrant, exciting letters like V, X, and Z – just like the rest of the world.
Names featuring V, X, and Z aren’t novel. One hundred years ago, parents were naming their daughters Evelyn and Virginia. Melvin, Marvin, Vernon, and Alvin were all up-and-comers circa 1914. Max, Felix, and Hazel have had good runs before, and rarities like Zenobia and Zola aren’t quite as rare as you might guess.
Huxley, Wolf, Ezra, August, Lochlan, Elsa, Emilia, Petra, Eleni, and Juniper all have something in common – they’re all names that I’ve come across on blogs, names that are unusual in real life, but familiar because I read what their parents write.
Move over supermodels and rock stars. Lately bloggers are among the most daring of baby namers.
Then there’s Rebecca Woolf, the blogger behind Girl’s Gone Child and the memoir Rockabye. I love her son’s name – Archer Sage – and was blown away when she and husband Hal chose Fable Luella for their daughter. Speculation about names for their twins had reached a fever pitch when the girls made their debut last week.
