Actress Tori Spelling Names Daughter Hattie Margaret

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

Tori SpellingTori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott recently had their third child together. If you haven’t already heard, they named their daughter Hattie Margaret. What’s the story behind their baby name choice? Linda Rosenkrantz and Pamela Redmond  of Nameberry offer their insight on the celebrity baby name.

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott have chosen the sweet, old-fashioned nickname name of Hattie Margaret for their third child.

Hattie, originally a pet form of Harriet, which is the feminine version of Henry, has rarely been seen on birth certificates since the 1960s, but it has several notable namesakes: the first female U.S. Senator, Hattie Caraway, clothing and jewelry designer Hattie Carnegie, and the first African American to win an Oscar, Hattie McDaniel, for Gone With the Wind.

Hattie was wildly popular at the end of the 19th century, in the Top 50 from 1880 to 1900, along with other similar names like Lottie and Letty and Tillie and Millie. This category of names could well be ready for a comeback, replacing the previous generation of Annie and Katie, Maggie and Molly nickname names.

Some other celebrities have already climbed on board, naming their kids Millie (Amy Grant), Sadie (Adam Sandler, Christina Applegate, Finola Hughes), Edie (Samantha Morton), Dolly (Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connor), Billie (Rebecca Gayheart and Eric Dane, Ethan Suplee), and Birdie (Busy Phillips and Maura West).

With their first two children, Liam Aaron and Stella Doreen, the Spelling-McDermotts chose family names as middle names—honoring Tori’s late father and Dean’s mother. Although they haven’t revealed its source, Margaret sounds like it could well be a family name as well. Margaret is a rich, classic name used in the past for queens and saints. Though not in the Top 10 as it once was, it is still a popular choice among conservative families.
