The Kardashians tend to (over)share every little detail over their lives, so it’s been a change to have wait for their baby name announcements in recent years. First it was Aire, the re-named son of Kylie. Then Khloe held off on announcing her son’s name. But now it’s been revealed. Welcome to the world, Tatum Robert.
Even if you’ve never kept up with the Kardashians, I do think the famous family has some wisdom when it comes to naming the next generation.
As for my reaction to Tatum? My daughter summed up my thoughts exactly: “It’s a very namey name for the Kardashians. They haven’t used a name since Mason and Penelope.”
Yup, pretty much exactly that.
I once met a man named Gordon Gordon. Thanks to Nancy’s most recent installment of Name Quotes, I now know that it’s called a reduplicated name. (And there are LOTS! Or at least more than I would’ve guessed …)
It’s been a while since The Beauty of Names has shared an aristocratic family of names. Love this fabulously French collection!
Speaking of aristocrats, yesterday was Coronation Day! If you watched any of the coverage, you might have noticed that eldest grandson George served as a Page of Honor. The other seven pages – responsible for holding the heavy ceremonial robes – were named Oliver, Nicholas, Ralph, Gus, Louis, Freddy, and Arthur. It’s a very British set, isn’t it?
Actress Sabrina Bryan has welcomed her second child. Ledger Gray joins Comillia Monroe. That name threw me for a loop. Apparently, they call their older child Monroe – which sounds about right for Ledger’s big sister. Comilia comes from husband Jordan Lundberg’s family.
Here’s an easy to miss trend. Laura explains why Blessyn is more common than Blessing today. She also notes that it’s happened before – Darlene was coined from “darling” with the previously popular -ene ending sound.
