Earth Day Names: Delta and Dune

By Linda Rosenkrantz

Since Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970, we’ve become increasingly aware of the preciousness of our natural resources and the urgency of protecting them. So how about passing on your concern for the environment by choosing one of these earth and water-friendly names for your baby? Of course you could also get more specific with a flower name like Violet or a tree name like Willow.

BayBay, which actually means ‘berry,’ is one of the most appealing of the cool water-inspired unisex names, and makes a refreshing middle name alternate to the more expected May or Ray. Zoe Kazan and Paul Dano used it as the middle name for daughter Alma.  Not to be confused with Bey/Bae, as in the nickname of Beyonce.

They picked a favorite girl name and a favorite boy name – but now they’re expecting twins! Time to double the name search.

Elsie writes:

We had everything prepared for our little bundle of joy’s entrance into the world, especially when we had decided on two names – Mariana Eloise for a girl and Gael Jesús for a boy. One appointment later, it’s a double bundle!

Although the blessing of twins is a joyous occasion, we can’t help but feel distraught over the tricky issue of name-giving. To make matters even more difficult on ourselves, we don’t know their sexes but that’s because we both agreed that we wanted to wait.

Do Mariana and Gael go together? We chose Mariana as we loved its style, its flow. We chose Gael for its strong, masculine sound and its unique feel. We’re having a hard time finding twin names that match up.

We would really appreciate your thoughts.
