Category: mom names
There’s a new generation of mom names, not the midcentury Kathys and Sues that are fast becoming grandma names, but the names of young moms today, born for the most part in the 70s and 80s, their names acquiring a more grownup image as they’ve grown up themselves.
This blog was inspired by the discussion of mom names over on the forums. On that board, berries are discussing their own moms’ names plus the names of moms they know who have young children.
Of course, not every name of a twenty-or-thirty-something mother qualifies as a mom name. What does?
In anticipation of Mother’s Day, we thought we’d turn the tables and look at the names of some distinguished moms. Turns out that a surprising number of past (and a few present) notables have had mothers with interesting names. Probably too far-fetched to think there’s any correlation, but in any case here are some examples–a really mixed batch.
KUTILDA — Tiger Woods
NEELTJE — Rembrandt van Rijn
NIKOLLE — Mother Teresa
