verses1

 Since April is National Poetry Month, this seems like a perfect time to look at some of the most poetic of baby names. We’ve already seen starbabies named Poet (Soleil Moon Frye), Sonnet (Forest Whitaker), Auden (Noah Wyle), Tennyson (Russell Crowe), and of course any number of Dylans (traceable back to poet Thomas).

BLY
BOGAN
BRONTE
BYRON
CAMPBELL
CAREW
