by Denise K. Potter/Nameberry

The cool baby names this summer include the 12 newest choices on Nameberry, inspired by ancient queens and celebrity newborns, fictional characters and an Ethiopian cabdriver! If your definition of cool baby names are those that are exotic, quirky, and unusual, our dozen newest choices may inspire you. (Buy this St. Kateri oranment on Etsy.) 


Amharic meaning “raining,” Zenebe is a fresh import from Ethiopia. With the bonus nickname Zen making it cool and attractive, Zenebe is an ideal choice for parents looking for a name that bridges cultures.
