It’s the birth of a new year, and the first of January also happens to be the birth date of numerous notables who might make a worthy namesake for your New Year’s baby—among them Paul Revere, Betsy Ross, John Smith and Pocahontas, E.M Forster, Barry Goldwater, and Hank Greenberg. Here are a dozen admirable New Year’s babies who happen to have interesting, berry-potential names.
If you’re shopping for a New Year’s baby name, there are several routes you could take. You might choose January, à la Ms. Jones or Eve à la New Year’s. Or you could pick a name whose meaning celebrates the hope brought by a new year, like Nadia or Esperanza—or Hope. Or one that suggests the dawn of a new year, such as Aurora or Oriana—or Dawn. But you could also go down the namesake path, paying tribute to a notable bearer of a name who entered the world on New Year’s Eve or Day. Here, eleven worth namesakes born on December 31 or January 1.
