short celebrity baby names

By Abby Sandel

Looking at this week’s baby names in the news, you might think that parents are all about short names. We’ve heard high profile birth announcements for Edie and Della, Iyla and Poppy – no formal names required.

But it’s not that simple. Sure, Ava and Mia are in the current girls’ US Top 10. But so are Olivia and Isabella. Cheerful nickname Liam is the Number 2 name for boys, but classic William isn’t far behind.

For nearly every short name that’s trending upwards, there’s a longer possibility that’s also on the rise.

If you’ve got the cash, a Swiss firm has assembled the creative linguists prepared to do just that.  It isn’t clear just how many bespoke baby names the firm has created.

Here’s my guess: the number is small.

celebrity baby names

By Abby Sandel, Appellation Mountain

Imagine you’re famous.

And expecting.

Whether you’re an Oscar-nominated actress or a reality show contestant who was voted out after a few episodes, you have two choices to make when it comes to your child’s name: the name itself, of course, and how to share it with the world.
