Did you know that the Grammy Awards has a category called “Best Children’s Album”?  And that not one of the five albums nominated this year has anything to do with wheels on busses or Old MacDonald‘s Farm?  These nominees’ work is a testament to the fact that there’s a huge body of award-worthy music out there that parents and kids can enjoy together–without parents fretting about their kids’ desires to “get lucky” or experience “blurred lines.”

All Grammy winners will be announced on Sunday, January 26,  The Children’s Music winners won’t be part of the televised award ceremony, but fans can follow along at grammy.com

Pop Culture Names: Cora, Aurora and Devora

The Nameberry 9 by Abby Sandel, Appellation Mountain

It happens all the time.

You’re expecting your first – or second, or third – and the perfect name eludes you.  There are lots of possibilities and maybes, but none of them are The Name.

And then along comes a movie, a television show, a celebrity, a song, and that’s it.  That’s the name.

The numbers tell us that pop culture is a major influence in baby naming.  And yet we resist the idea.  A name from a Jane Austen novel?  Classic, sophisticated.  From a soap opera or a Disney Channel series?  Sometimes we’re a little dismissive of those choices.

But here’s the thing about names: we can’t consider them until we are aware that they exist.

This week’s names all come from movies and television, books and blogs.  You may have heard them before, but seeing them on the screen could make the names feel fresh, interesting, and just right for a daughter.

Introducing the New Nameberry!

We are thrilled to announce the new, redesigned, and much improved Nameberry, introducing a host of new features now and over the days and weeks to come.

Designed by the fabulous Tedworth & Oscar, aka the British brother team Joe and Jake Baggaley, the new Nameberry is completely responsive, created to look as beautiful and work as seamlessly on your iPhone as it does on your big-screen desktop.

Besides its new mobile capabilities, other changes you’ll notice on Nameberry right away:

— An updated, more sophisticated palette, expanding on our standard pink-and-blue with a range of pastels keyed to different functions.

A second blog on our home page where we’ll host wonderful guest baby name bloggers (like Eleanor Nickerson of British Baby Names, featured today) along with pregnancy and baby experts.

Expanded list pages, giving you a snippet of information on all the lists in a category or a bit about every name in the list.  Plus the option to view lists old-school, as just a complete array of linked names.

Simplified name ratings, letting you vote yay, nay, or meh for every name.
