Do Parents Regret Wacky Baby Names Later?

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

baby namesYou’ve probably felt buyer’s remorse, but what about namer’s remorse? A unique name like Mowglis or Boulevard might sound like a good way to set your child apart from all the Jacob‘s and Isabella‘s when you name him, but once your baby starts to develop a personality and go to school with his unique name, will it still sound so perfect?

According to a British study sponsored by parenting site Bounty.com, one in five parents regretted their name choice after finding a more fitting one later or realizing it was too unusual.

Celebrity parents continue to lead the wacky baby name charge. Or should we call it a competition? Alicia Silverstone named her son Bear Blu; Mariah Carey called her twins Monroe and Moroccan; and Antonio Sabato Jr. just gave his newborn the Hawaiian middle name Kamakanaalohamaikalani — at least it’s a middle name.

TODAYMoms even found a name-happy mom who gave her daughter seven unusual names instead of just one. The list includes Astravaganza and Angeletta, but not the name her 15-year-old daughter goes by today — Lola.

Perhaps your kids will thank you later for if you give them a popular name.

Alicia Silverstone Welcomes Baby Boy, Bear Blu

Monday, May 9th, 2011

alicia silverstoneAlicia Silverstone and husband Christopher Jarecki welcomed a baby boy last Thursday, May 5, just in time for the first time mom to celebrate her first Mother’s Day.

Mom and Dad are completely in love with their beautiful baby boy, according to a statement from Silverstone’s rep. At birth he weighed in at 7 lbs., 15 oz.

The couple named their son Bear Blu, joining the ranks of celebrity parents opting for a super-unique baby name rather than a classic or popular one. Knowing that Silverstone is a major animal lover, PETA activist, and vegan, maybe an animal-themed baby name shouldn’t surprise us.
