Category: fashionable baby names
Savvy shoppers know that the best deals and sales are to be found after the holidays, when retailers who need to make room for new spring inventory drastically slash prices. This year, with my gift cards in hand, I have been browsing clothing websites in search of the best deals and steals.
What I found, however, in addition to the array of beautifully discounted clothing I had anticipated, was a plethora of stylish baby names. Retailers, perhaps in an effort to imbue their clothing with a certain personality or style, are frequently naming their garments, and some clothing manufacturers are surprisingly (and delightfully) very skilled at the name game.
One of my favorite websites to troll, Rugby Ralph Lauren, offered up such a dazzling bevy of holiday delicacies that I felt compelled to share them with all the other berries out there! The choices range from the lusciously feminissima (Calixta and Forsythia) to crusty surname (Talcott and Ackley) to epic medieval (Baldric and Rowena), and all of them were so appealing that it was hard to whittle down the complete list of stylish baby names I’d found. The ones I’ve compiled for the sake of this blog are my favorites; unusual, fresh, and imminently “wearable.” In any case, Rugby is brilliant for putting so much effort into these names; I can’t be the only one who, given the choice between a blouse called “Araminte” and one called “Maddysin,” would take the former!
Every year a few kids are named after high-end designers, like Armani and Chanel. Despite their luxury brand status, the names tend to feel a little forced. Chances are that a kid destined to graduate from a Dior couture layette to Gucci toddler gear would never wear a name so obvious.
But your kid’s closet or the racks at the local baby boutique could serve as inspiration for a baby name. Designers aplenty have launched pint-sized versions of their runway-worthy duds. Equally intriguing are the names of the many labels launched to help us dress our kids in the latest fashions.
