Parents Magazine – Best Baby Names

In the September 2008 issue of Parents magazine, there is an article entitled “Best Baby Names 2009.” After reading it and forming my own opinions on the names, I wanted to get my Namefreak readers’ opinions. πŸ™‚ Which of the following names do you absolutely love or hate?

  1. My favorites are in the jet-setters and country club list. What does that say about me exactly? πŸ™‚ My husband would never go for these, but I like Charlotte, London, and Austin; and Chase, Blair, Harrison, Paige, and Georgia. I even sort of like the superhero list, ha! Logan has been on our boys list for years.

  2. I tend to lean toward the royalty for boys and country club for girls, although I like some floral nature names for girls, too. Pretty much the rest are never-ever-what-are-you-thinking. I mean, if you’re the type of person to name your kid after an American Idol or Beyonce or any other Hollywood personality, you’re probably not the type of person I get along with. As for ethnic names, I say leave them to those ethnicities — a Brigitte or Jean-Claude running around AR? Nope, ain’t gonna happen. πŸ™‚
