The Nameberry Awards Go To…..

We wish we’d thought of the Nameberry Awards.

But the entertaining and illuminating awards given by popular vote to the best names in a range of categories was the brainchild of Genevieve, over on the Nameberry forums.

How it worked: Berries nominated names in each category.  Then the entries were organized into polls and people voted as well as commented on their choices.  Here’s one example.

We see Nameberry favorites such as Charlotte and Genevieve, Henry and Theo showing up in the results.  But there are many surprises as well: Rowan chosen as a top unisex name for both girls and boys, for instance.  Indiana voted the top celebrity baby name for girls.
