This week, Abby Sandel, of Appellation Mountain, gathers interesting but not outré names from sources ranging from the Old Testament to Cirque de Soleil.
The end of the year is fast approaching, and with it comes year-end lists. Are Isabella and Jacob top of the tops, or does that distinction belong to Sophia and Aiden? How about Liam and Charlotte?
It is an interesting debate, but for parents seeking inspiration, it isn’t necessarily helpful. Often we read lists of the most popular names as a collection of those to avoid, lest our little Charlotte complain that she’s one of three in her kindergarten.
And yet, few of us are daring enough to consider a completely unique name. Yes, celebrities are embracing Bear and Spike and Bing, but they’re rather bold choices outside ofHollywood.
Surely there’s middle ground between Skylark and Emma, Gitano and Noah.
