Shakespeare baby names have charted in the US Top Ten – think of Jessica and Olivia. The good news: more gems await discovery!
William Shakespeare innovated with language, shaping the English we speak today. No surprise his work brims with amazing names.
All of the names feel wearable, though they range from the familiar, to the seldom-heard, to the way out-there. Besides given names, a sprinkling of place names made their way onto the list, too. But a word of warning: some of the Bard’s best names attach to villains.
For this list, I’ve skipped the classics, and the names that seem so closely linked to history that they don’t feel like Shakespeare baby names. And yet, I’m sure I’ve overlooked some that deserve a spot on this list.
If you’re seeking a literary choice, Shakespeare baby names make a great place to start!
