  • Blog Post: Unusual Baby Names: Hiding in plain sight

    The writers of a new name book go out on a limb--and then some--to come up with some unusual baby names you never, ever, would have thought of. People often ask us how the heck we, two colleagues who live on different continents, and with a total of zero children between us, came to write a baby name book.

Some of us probably felt vindicated.  Of course you shouldn’t give a boy’s name to a girl! Others probably thought: If only they’d chosen Justine instead.
