Category: colorful baby names
By Abby Sandel
So that’s what we’ll be painting our walls. But how about what we’ll be naming our children?
Last week, Molly Sims welcomed son Grey Douglas, a little brother for Brooks and Scarlett. It’s nicely ahead of the trends. Grayson ranks in the US Top 50; Greyson isn’t far behind. Grey makes for a minimalist twist on that popular sound.
Here are my picks for the next generation of undiscovered color names:
Sometimes it feels like girls have some unfair advantages when it comes to names. They get all the pretty flower and gem names and some of the best color names as well, like Violet and Scarlet and Rose. But we’re here to say that there are great, colorful names for boys as well—and that doesn’t even count all the Irish names with red meanings like Flynn, Rory, Rowan, Rufus and Rooney.

Before we get to her new daughter’s colorful moniker, let’s pause and consider the other issue Madison raised: to share or not to share your baby’s name in advance?
Madison split the difference.
She hinted throughout her pregnancy that she was going to choose something different, even comparing it to that much-maligned celeb kid choice, Apple.
I’d been pouring over her Twitter feed looking for clues to her baby’s name, and completely missed that one.
So the choices for expectant parents in 2013 are: tell the world your name before the arrival, keep mum until you’ve already made it official, or use social media to drop broad hints to all of your faithful followers.
