What Is Your Favorite Day Name?
Day names for babies just got hotter!
Harry Potter star Rupert Grint joined Instagram earlier this week to announce the name of his six-month-old daughter, Wednesday.
It’s a cool and quirky choice that has been trending in a big way on Nameberry this week. In fact, all of the day names have seen a substantial rise in views since little Wednesday made her grand entrance. (Yes, even Monday – up 25%!)

And why not? Sunday has been stylish for a while now – ever since Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban chose it for their daughter, born in 2008. Other famous parents, including Mike Myers, Ferne McCann and, most recently, Janet Montgomery, have followed suit.
And it’s not just days of the week that are catching the eye of prospective parents. Month names like May, June, August, and even October and November, are all on the rise. So too is the coolest season name of the moment: Winter.
Day names are an ancient tradition in many cultures. Names used among certain ethnic groups in Africa may be drawn from the time of day, day of the week, or season of a child’s birth. For example, among the Akan people of Ghana and the Ivory Coast, Kofi is the name given to boys born on a Friday (the female equivalent is Efua).
