Stylish Baby Names

Nameberry guest blogger and star intern Hannah Tenison uncovers a catalogue of intriguingly stylish 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!

Model Names

With the fall fashion shows in full swing — showing clothes for next spring, now that the sizzle of summer 2010 has barely cooled — our thoughts turn to models.

We could care less about their figures or their style; what we’re interested in, of course, is their names.  While nameberry includes lists of Supermodel Names (where you’ll find lots more choices) and Supermodel Baby Names, we thought we’d look at the current crop of model monikers.

The list is heavy on Eastern European names, given that many of the girls hail from there.  But there are some good ‘ol American names here as well.

Names of the hottest 25 models right now, according to the rankings at models.com, are:

New Baby Names


Love a name but fear it’s overused?  Think one name is stylish, yet want something even more stylish?

You’re not alone.  Many parents are looking for names that are like those that have been popular and fashionable in recent years….but different.  Something with a similar look and feel, but in an updated model.

We wrote about this a few months back, in our post Is Felix the New Oscar?  Since then, we’ve encountered a lot of other fresh versions of recent favorites.  For example:

ADELAIDE or ADELINE are the new ADDISON

BYRON is the new BRIAN

CHLOE is the new ZOE
