2013's Most "Extraordinary" Baby Names Include Lohan, Pinky & Pepsi

The Bounty Parenting Club, which I had no idea existed until just now, released its annual list of the most popular and “extraordinary” baby names of 2013, if by “extraordinary” they mean “destined to get your kid weird looks for the rest of their life.” For example, Tea, Sorel, Pinky, Ream, and Pepsi were popular names for girls this year, while a number of parents thought it a great idea to name their sons Tiger, Lohan, Dior, Denley and Boden. In all seriousness, while my own baby name tastes tend towards the old fashioned and vaguely country music-inspired, I do think parents should name their kids after whatever they want, even inferior carbonated cola beverages and flailing former It Girls.

10 Holiday Inspired Baby Names That Make My Skin Crawl

christmas-baby

I’ve known a few Noelles and Hollys in my day, so the trend of giving your baby a name inspired by the season when it was born—especially a magical season like Christmas—isn’t anything new. And we’ve all heard seasonal names like April, Summer, and Autumn before. (Secret confession: Autumn was my number one, all-time favorite name for a girl, no matter what season she was born in, but now I have two boys!)

But even with baby naming, you can have too much of a good thing. Read more on The Gloss…

“Game Of Thrones,” “Breaking Bad” & “Homeland”-Inspired Baby Names Are On The Rise — But Where’s Saul?!

"Game Of Thrones," "Breaking Bad" & "Homeland"-Inspired Baby Names Are On The Rise -- But Where's Saul?!

Parents have long taken inspiration for their child’s name from pop culture. For the last few years, “Twilight”-inspired names like Bella/Isabella and Edward have been huge, as have names borrowed from famous tots like Mason (Kourtney Kardashian’s son). But the names on the rise this year are mostly inspired by characters on the small screen, specifically grim and violent dramas like “Game of Thrones,” “Breaking Bad” and “Homeland.” Keep reading »

Romney Family Adopts A Black Baby Named Kieran & People Are Upset About It

I dislike Mitt Romney and his politics as much as the next liberal. But I draw the line at inane knee-jerk reactions to the name of his new adopted grandchild.

See, Ben Romney and his wife Andelynne Romney (above) adopted a newborn baby boy. The 23rd grandchild in the Romney family  (not 22nd, as tweeted) is a little Black baby named Kieran James Romney. Some folks on Twitter are upset that in Gaelic, the name Kieran means “black,” “little dark one,” or “dark skinned.” They seem to be suggesting Ben Romney, a doctor, and his wife chose intentionally to stigmatize the child by effectively naming him “Black Romney.” Keep reading »

What Will The Royal Baby's Name Be? Let's Discuss The Contenders!

Now that the Great Kate Wait is over and the baby prince has been born, we’ve shifted our obsession to guessing what the royal baby name will be! Given that Will and Kate have hundreds of years of tradition to uphold, chances are that the royal moniker will be chosen from this no-weird-names shortlist, and announced some time this week. Keep in mind royals choose several middle names (Prince William has three – William Arthur Philip Louis) so the full name could be a combination of some of the options below. Here are the current frontrunners: Keep reading »

couple lets starbucks customers name their baby

I’ve done a lot of questionable things inside of a Starbucks, usually involving an uncontrollable bout of hanger, but these people really take the cake. (A slice of iced lemon pound cake, that is.) Jennifer James and Mark Dixon of West Haven, Connecticut, are letting Starbucks customers choose their baby name. Dixon works in downtown New Haven and the couple frequents a Starbucks near the New Haven Green. Apparently a lot. So much so that they placed paper cups near the registers asking customers to cast a vote for their child’s birth name: “Help us chose our son’s (first) name, Jackson or Logan.” Customers voted on the names given, but also added write-ins, including Chaz, Webster, Lincoln and Jebediah. But ultimately, 1,800 voters at Starbucks have spoken and they have chosen Logan as the name. Little Logan Jackson Dixon is due in September. There’s no word yet on whether they’ll outsource other parenting decisions — cloth diapers or disposables! breastfeeding or formula! — to Frappuccino drinkers as well.

Your Baby Name Choice Reveals Your Political Leanings

baby names

Choosing a baby name may be one of the hardest things a parent has to do. I’d say it’s harder than potty training — which has become my nemesis right now. Giving your kid a name, whatever name it is, is the one single word your kid is going to hear for the rest of their life. It’s a BIG deal. It also says a whole lot about you as a parent. It even reveals your political leanings.

Conservatives tend to choose a certain kind of name, and liberals prefer names with a certain kind of sound. Before I reveal, let’s take guesses. Let’s think about the kid names Leo and Kevin. If you had to choose who belongs to the liberal parent and who belongs to the conservative parent, what would you guess? Read more on The Stir…

Remember how George Foreman named each of his five sons George? He couldn’t get enough of his own name, I guess. Well, a Brazillian mother of 12 has got him beat by a friggin’ mile. She’s named each of her 15 kids Walter. Like, all of them. Even the girls.

Erotides Brandao promised she’d name her firstborn after her husband Walter — and she did. The girl’s name is Walterlucia. But then Walter got a big head about it, and decided all of his kids would bear his name. Walter died in 2003, but the tradition continues on: all 33 of his grandchildren also have Walter in their names.

And my, did Brandao get creative.
