Kim and Kanye’s baby son was born this morning, and while lots of joke baby names have been thrown about, from Easton to South to Yeezus, the new parents have confessed that they are seriously stumped on finding a good name.
Winter or Windsor, shortened to Win – We are super-excited about this one. We don’t know whether we prefer Winter or Windsor as a full name, with Winter connecting to the baby’s December birthday and Windsor referring to the British royals that Kim admires. Both lead to the undeniably perfect nickname Win, an upbeat word name that’s less jokey than another directional name and perfect for the son of the winning couple. PLUS the alliterative W beginning makes for a powerful full name: It echoes Kim’s KK initials without mimicking them.

So far, we’ve yet to hear the names those famous families have chosen for their new additions.
Is delaying the name announcement the new norm?
How does she do it? Once again, CaraMichelle has managed to unearth the names of a prodigious number of celebrity births.
Both Deschanel sisters gave birth in October, but it was Zooey‘s name choice, Elsie Otter, that attracted the most attention—particularly the middle name, which was seen, for the most part, as an adorable new animal option. Another high-powered celeb, Carey Mulligan, picked the more classic Evelyn Grace, while Brooklyn Decker and Andy Roddick went the cut-to-the-nickname route with Hank.

Although theatre was still prominent (and movie actors and actresses were considered ‘lowly’ by theatre people), the birth of the “star” only truly came about when motion pictures became popular. Today I’m looking at the female stars of those silent screen days.

Earlier this week, Mike Myers and wife Kelly Tisdale welcomed a new daughter, a sister for Spike Alan and Sunday Molly. Their older kids’ names are bold, unconventional choices, but they went a different direction for their newest arrival: Paulina.
It might be a departure for the Myers family, but it’s in step with many of the names that we love for girls today. Sophia is popular the world over. Olivia and Isabella are Top Ten favorites in the US, and names like Arabella, Ariana, and Valentina are stylish, too.
Could Paulina be part of the next wave of long, lovely, romantic names for girls? And if so, what are some of the other up-and-coming names that could also catch on?
