We first talked with the lovely Natalie Hanson, whose husband is musical star Taylor Hanson, when she named her fourth child the amazing Viggo Moriah. Not only is Natalie a celebrity mom, she’s a name nerd! We’re delighted and honored to welcome Natalie to Nameberry as a guest blogger. Here, she looks back on the names she and her husband chose for their four young children and what she’s thinking about for names for her fifth, due this fall.
This October I will celebrate ten years since I first took my adolescent name research and applied it to an actual human being. This upcoming anniversary has inspired me to look back on the names my husband and I gave to our four children, the ways we chose them, and how they’ve worked out. Have each of my choices lived up to my hopes? Was my perception of each name’s potential correct, or “ahead of its time”? Our name stories:
Let’s face it, we all can’t wait to hear the next big celebrity baby names and we all judge them when they’re announced. Are they too outrageous? Too popular? Too bland?
But let’s say the tables were turned and you knew that your baby–and her name–were going to be splashed across the cover of People magazine for all the world to see–and weigh in on. Would you choose a different name from the one you’d pick as a private person?
Would your celebrity self look for a name that would bring your baby–and you–lots of attention? (Hello, Huckleberry.)
