Where Did You Find Your Child’s Name?

May 26, 2010 Pamela Redmond

One of the best recent message boards to spring up on nameberry cites a story of a couple who pick their child’s name from a character on Sex & The City, and then morphs into a discussion of how and where people found their children’s names, or where their parents found their own.

So we thought, like our sixth grade teacher, we’d ask you to share these stories with the whole class.  Where did you find your baby’s name?   What interesting, unusual, surprising, or inane sources did your friends and family use for names?

Name books or the nameberry message boards?  The Bible or your family tree?  Movie credits or world maps?  Maybe you’ve been carrying around a favorite name since third grade.  Or maybe you just overhead a name you liked and decided to make it your own.

Tell all!
