Everyone You Know Is Picking Baby Names From "Frozen" And "The Hunger Games" For 2015

People have been naming their babies after popular film, television, and pop culture figures for years, but some of those baby name trends are better than others. For example, when everybody started naming their kids “Bella” and “Edward” and “Wolfman McAbs” after Twilight‘s leads, many of us rolled our eyes. But this year, things are awesome: people are naming their kids after Frozen characters at a huge rate, and not just the one name you might think. Read more on The Gloss…

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?!

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 »
