My husband and I are expecting our third (and final) baby in September. We currently have two children, PaisleyRaine and PalmerReed, and are having a hard time answering the question everyone wants to know. Will new little sister’s name start with a P?
While both of our children share the initials PRM, it wasn’t intentional on our part. We just happened to fall in love both names. Part of me is afraid that little sister will feel left out if her name has different initials, but my husband feels differently.
We truly have no list at all. We like unique names, but nothing too crazy. I’m a teacher, so I like names that I don’t hear every year. My husband likes names with a Southern feel.
I can tell you from personal experience that L is a lovely initial for a girl to have. It looks great written in script, it has an appealingly lilting sound, especially with a second L-syllable, and of course it’s the letter of love.
Today we dive deep into the charts to look at the comeback baby names of 2018. Not names that have returned to the Top 100, or even the Top 1000; we’re talking about lost baby names that have just returned to the list.
When a name gets popular, it’s rarely in isolation. Boy names and girl names tend to rise and fall in groups based on sound, image, or some combination thereof. Sometimes just a pair of names will attract attention, but often entire gangs of names will become fashionable at the same time.
