We’ve been waiting for this birth announcement!
Could the singer and his supermodel wife have drawn inspiration from 1960s icon Dusty Springfield? It’s possible. Miss Springfield – born Mary Isobel Catherine Bernadette O’Brien – became known professionally by her childhood nickname. Her hits range from the sweet “Wishin’ and Hopin’” to the soulful “Son of a Preacher Man.”
Only after Miss Springfield became a household name did we consider this name for our daughters. Dusty peaked as a girls’ name way back in 1976.
Since then, Dusty has slipped towards obscurity. A mere fifteen girls were given the name last year, and only around four-dozen boys.
Could Dusty be next?
