My New Year’s Resolution is to finish cleaning up the site. It’s been eight months since The Big Move to self-hosting, and there are still broken links galore, as well as some incomplete posts. If you stumble on a post that appears to be just a few lines, please leave a comment – the rest of the post is lurking in the archive. They’re tough for me to find, so your help is very much appreciated!
Now, on to the baby name news:
- I think Graham is totally wearable. Plus, you can serve s’mores at his first birthday party.
- This Babble slideshow is irritatingly light on content, but probably reflects what most people think of the Top Names of 1913. Me? I believe Millie will make a comeback, and I wouldn’t count out George.
- All of the Top Names of Whichever Region/Hospital Center/Other Jurisdiction have gone past in a blur, this year, but Liam seems to be rising in several of them. Nancy reports that he’s #1 in Manitoba.
- I don’t envy this mom – and I think Swistle’s advice is exactly right.
- The Name Station defends Ryker. He’s NMS at all, but I completely see his appeal.
- Which formal names lead to Pi? Lou uncovers the backstory on the movie name, but I’m thinking Piper and Pierce are the logical formal versions.
- Statham feels like a British aristocrat to me, cousin to Hallam. Except for the action hero factor, which makes him more like Slade. I agree with Blue Juniper – he’s wearable. (BTW, isn’t she doing an amazing job surfacing wearable-but-different names? Evanora last week, and now Statham. I love seeing what she unearths.)
- You can’t be a Princess in New Zealand.
- But you can be an Annecy in Australia. I kind of love this one …
- And Jessamy, too.
Heard any fabulous names recently?
