Most my dear friends know that I’ve been keeping a list of future baby names since the tender age of, well, about ten. No, I’m not pregnant (nor do I plan to be anytime soon!), but I do hope to eventually have five or so bouncing babies of my own. I’m constantly scribbling down great names in my trusty moleskin notebook, be they from films, novels, artists, or crazy British aristocrats (the pages of Tatler are a treasure trove…). For girls I love fanciful, traditional-with-a-twist names, some frilly, other’s with a bit of a femme fatale edge. I also love boys names for girls—if the girl can pull them off they’re always just so hopelessly cool. Below, in no particular order, are some of my favorites.
What about you? Do you prefer the more traditional, popular names or will you opt for something more original? I can’t wait to hear your own personal favorites!
