Wilson Baby #3

  1. Alden
    • Origin:

      English
    • Meaning:

      "old, wise friend"
    • Description:

      This is one surname-name that may swing decidedly to the male side, thanks to highly-visible young actor Alden Ehrenreich.
  2. Boone
    • Origin:

      English from French
    • Meaning:

      "blessing, lucky"
    • Description:

      Boone is one of the advancing herd of lean and lanky cowboy names with a laid-back, backwoods, Western feel—and surprising French roots. It's inevitably linked with legendary frontiersman Daniel, and also with the positive connotations of the word boon. It debuted in the US Top 1000 in 2015.
  3. Brynn
    • Origin:

      Spelling variation of Bryn, Welsh
    • Meaning:

      "hill"
    • Description:

      Brynn outshines the original Welsh Bryn in the popularity stakes. This simple, brisk name might be seen as a combination of Bree and Lynn, an androgynous-sounding choice that especially in this spelling is not truly unisex: Brynn, for boys, is not even in the Top 1000.
  4. Briar
    • Camber
      • Origin:

        English from Latin
      • Meaning:

        "curved inwards"
      • Description:

        Part Cameron, part Amber, Camber may be a new name but it feels right for our times. As a word, camber means a slightly arched surface.
    • Case
      • Origin:

        Word name
      • Description:

        A brisk and unconventional name that could be a style stand-in for confederates Casey, Chase, Cale, and Cade.
    • Cedar
      • Origin:

        Word name
      • Description:

        Fresh and fragrant nature name more apt to be used for a boy.
    • Colt
      • Origin:

        Word name
      • Meaning:

        "young horse"
      • Description:

        Colt is the kind of unconventionally macho name that is so trendy right now, because of or in spite of its association with horses and guns.
    • Dayla
      • Gauge
        • Origin:

          Word name; Spelling variation of Gage
        • Description:

          Gauge is the dictionary spelling, but Gage is the far more popular choice, ranking at Number 281 in 2016.
      • Harper
        • Origin:

          English
        • Meaning:

          "harp player"
        • Description:

          Harper got its start as a celebrity baby name when Paul Simon chose it for his now-grown son. Since then, other famous parents have followed suit: musician Tim Finn and actor Cecilia Peck both have sons called Harper.
      • Hinge
        • JADE
          • Jasper Layne
            • Josie Layne
              • Kannon
                • Origin:

                  English, Hindi
                • Description:

                  Kannon, the name of actor Kevin James' son born in 2011, seems at first glance to be a kre8if spelling of bad boy name Cannon. But Kannon is also the name of the Buddhist god (and sometime goddess) of mercy and compassion, a very different image from the big gun. Either way, it made its way into the Top 1000 for the first time in 2013, and was one of the year's fastest-rising names.
              • Kellen
                • Origin:

                  German; Irish
                • Meaning:

                  "swamp; slender"
                • Description:

                  Kellen is German in origin and Irish in spirit. Kellen has fallen a bit in popularity for boys since its peak in 2012, but it has possibilities for girls too. In fact, Kellen's similarity to such feminine names as Helen, Ellen, and Kelly makes it feel more unisex or even female, though Twilight actor Kellan Lutz has done much to popularize this name for boys.
              • Knox
                • Origin:

                  Scottish
                • Meaning:

                  "round hill"
                • Description:

                  Knox is an old Scottish surname that Brad Pitt (whose great-great-grandfather was named Hal Knox Hillhouse) and Angelina Jolie took out of the back cupboard, dusted off, and elevated to coolness--to the point where it entered the popular baby names list in 2009. Knox now ranks among the most influential celebrity baby names.
              • Kurt
                • Origin:

                  German, diminutive of Kurtis
                • Meaning:

                  "courteous, polite"
                • Description:

                  A name that defines itself, a bit more curt in the harder K version.
              • Kyler
                • Origin:

                  Dutch
                • Meaning:

                  "victory of the people"
                • Description:

                  Kyler was once a creative solution for 90s parents who enjoyed the sounds of Kyle and Tyler but didn't want to use anything so popular. Now a well-established name on the US charts, it is given to more than 1000 babies every year.
