  • Blog Post: Cool Eurostyle Names for Boys

  • Blog Post: British Names: What's classy, what's cool

    I love the day once a quarter or so that I allow myself to wallow in the London Telegraph birth announcements. Britberries regularly admonish me not to take the names in the Telegraph to mean anything about typical British baby-naming behavior: Those are names chosen by mostly upper class families, they say, and are examples of a rarefied taste. Point taken, but I still can't help but be struck by how different many of the names are from what you'd hear in similar stratospheres of...

    By Emily Cardoza Often when parents are picking names for their children, they want something that will evoke a feeling-- a name that's strong or soft or cozy. With the increasing individuality of today's names, why not get inspired at the fabric store? If you're skeptical, consider this - Paisley has been in the top 100 for the last four years. Though it also links to Brad Paisley and the ever-popular "ley" ending, the fact that Paisley inspires images of beautiful patterns is...
