Modern Movie Moppets with Cool Names

November 12, 2015 Linda Rosenkrantz

Child actresses represent the sea change in the baby name landscape, with its tremendous diversity. There are girls with boys’ names, unusual surname and nickname names, and names that are completely unique. And although we stuck here with girls under 14, I must admit it was hard to resist such boys as acting brothers Gulliver, Zen and Winta McGrath. By Linda Rosenkrantz


8-year-old Aubrey Anderson-Emmons is known for her role as Lily Tucker-Pritchett, the Vietnamese child adopted by Mitchell and Cam on the long-running sitcom Modern Family. Once a British-accented male name, Aubrey is now all-girl, currently in the Top 20.
