Naming Your Baby: The Meanings Behind Classic Names

mamiverseLately it seems if you don’t give your child an original name, you haven’t made enough of an effort. What’s wrong with a simple Anna, Julia, Sebastian or Daniel? Now colors, fruits, geography or the calendar are the source of inspiration for names that would be more appropriate for a pet. Celebrities are at the forefront of this trend, in a crazy race to surpass each other with the most unique baby name.

I have to agree many have a nice ring and are very musical—and, once in a while, I really like a new fancy name and wonder why it didn’t occur to me. Because I admit, when naming my first child, I gave it quite a bit of thought. In fact, even at the hospital after she was born, I still hadn’t made a decision. But I went a different route and chose classic names for my two girls, doubting that 20 years later a new name, however poetic, would still be music to my ears.
