First Baby Names of 2013

I shared with you earlier today how I’m slowly coming out of the darkness of the 2nd-trimester miscarriage of my twins from this past holiday season. And few things give me as many smiles as baby names!

While my journey to motherhood is temporarily on hold, I can still enjoy checking out the fun and funky – and downright awful – names that are being given to babies. That, and I need a break from The Heavy. The first babes of 2013 sure do have some wild, wacky, and wonderful monikers to grow into! Check ‘em out for yourself, and tell me what you think about them…

    I love Graham Kent! My daughter’s name is Lila Everly so of course I like Lyla Emerson.

    We have a Grey Michael (9); Wilde Nyal (5); Maggie May (2); and TigerLily Hannah (3 weeks). Everyone has an opinion about our name choices but as our kids have grown they have lived into their names. Grey is as stormy and handsome as could be; Wilde is not out of control, but more unconventional and charming; Maggie is as stubborn and sweet as her namesakes; and baby TigerLily is a fierce beauty just like the flower. We knew they would be good names for who we want to raise – strong, confident, unique people who will prove they are more than a name but amazing individuals with personalities forged with creativity.
