Website Offers Baby Name Suggestions for 2013
(NEW YORK) — What names are Kim Kardashian and Kanye West considering for their future little bundle of joy?
They might consult the social baby-naming website Belly Ballot, which gathers information on what other parents are naming their children all over the world.
In a poll of 1,000 parents, Belly Ballot found that tech-inspired names like Kindle, Hashtag, Tweet and Android are all possibilities.
Then there are those parents who want to combine multiple names — such as film actress Uma Thurman, who bestowed the name Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson on her daughter.
Names that were popular once but skipped a generation or two are coming back into vogue, such as Albert, Bertha, Charles, Eleanor, Florence, Frank, Nellie and Olive.
Last names are becoming first names too, including Brick, Copeland, Drake, Fletcher, Grant, Hayes, Kennedy and Sutton.
And naturally, what are nouveau baby names if they can’t be given unusual spellings, like Avah, Braedyn, Jaxen, Josilyn and Xakery.
