Okay, so maybe your first thoughts that come to mind about Mardi Gras have more to do with debauchery and topless women than, say… family. But don’t discount the rich history of the world’s most famous carnival and parade. In fact, if not for Lent, Mardi Gras would unlikely exist. So, you see, it’s actually a very holy time. Right?
Well, regardless. It’s a fun and funky and alive time. Color, music, spirit, and joy — not to mention history — are very much a part of Mardi Gras. So, naturally, it bears numerous names that are oh-so lovely and un-traditionally awesome.
Appellation Mountain (one of my favorite name sites) recently brought to light a few dozen great names that all have connections to the greatest carnival in the world. Here, I share my favorite 10 names from their Mardi Gras list, which (of course) all happen to be fabulous and 100% wearable for today’s babies.
