When I heard the name of Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo’s new baby girl, I took a page from the Godfather and went for the mattresses. Well, a little to the left of the mattress, actually – the kid’s bookshelf.
Because Pompeo’s pick had a ring to it that was awfully familiar.
OK, forget the fruit bat part, it doesn’t exactly help the case I’m about to make: you don’t need a baby name book. Just stroll the children’s section of your local bookstore, and you’ll find a good one. Better yet, revisit your childhood faves.
It’s got a benefit all the Neveahs and Uniques don’t – when you’re looking to recharge their interest in reading, you’ll be able to pull out “their” book.
You may want to shy away from animals that shriek in the night.
What do you think of the Stella Luna pick? Better than Sparrow?
