  • Blog Post: L Names to Love

    The J names had their day: Jennifer, Jason, Jessica.  Then K was up, and we had lots of Kevins and Kaylas, Kaitlyns and Kyles. What’s next?  It just might be L’s turn. Linda wrote about the delicious La-La names, from Lola to Lila to Lily, that are newly popular.  And certainly, the most visible of the L names right now are these Double L names. (A side note here: DELILAH and TALLULAH may not have an L in first place but are part of this same Double L trend.) But there are lots of...

  • Blog Post: Love the name, love the person?

    I met someone named Bea the other night and I knew instantly that I liked her. How could I not, given how much I liked her name? To me, the name Bea feels accessible and down-to-earth yet at the same time unusual and elegant -- a fantastic combination. And once my new friend Bea told me the history of her name -- that her full name was Beatrice, but that her mother really wanted to name her Bridget after her grandmother, which was also my grandmother's name -- I decided we were going to be...

  • Blog Post: Nicknames: Love 'em or loathe 'em?

    Most baby namers have strong feelings about nicknames--pro or con-- liking them on their own, liking them as short/pet forms, or wanting to avoid them altogether. The question of the week is: Where do you stand on nicknames? Would you put a nickname name like Gracie or Charlie on your child's birth certificate?? Would you choose a name as a path to a nickname you like? Would you avoid a name because you don't like its obvious nickname?  Would you insist (or try to) on your child...

    By Abby Sandel Congratulations to Eddie Redmayne and Hannah Bagshawe on the arrival of their daughter, Iris Mary. The Oscar-winning actor and his public relations executive wife chose a sophisticated, nickname-proof name for their first child. Iris has so many qualities expectant parents seek. It’s literary and glamorous, but not too much for a young child to wear. It’s nearly impossible to shorten Iris. And ecovintage Iris feels modern, but has history to spare, from the ancient world...

(After all, at least some of those hundreds of new babies being named Atticus must have some connection to that inspirational lawyer in To Kill a Mockingbird  and all those recent little Holdens to that cynical adolescent Holden Caulfield in The Catcher in the Rye—whether conscious or not.) So think back—can you trace your...
