Emmy Harper is sweet, though I’m not much of a fan of nickname names.
Devenney and Geraldlie are interesting.
Wonder if Bowen’s parents were inspired by the Brees’ new son, or irritated by having their name “stolen”?
Probably the latter. This Bowen was born before Brees’ Bowen. 🙂
Where are these names from?? So many of them aren’t even names. Seriously, Aarys, Alec’Joel (apostrophes in names are…horrible), Aleigha, Brisa, Brogan (seriously bad, sounds like Bogan. There’s actually a girl at my school called Brogan and I will never understand), Casen, Courtlyn, Devenney, Geraldlie, Holton, Laniah, Macelyn, Mar’johnn (again with the apostrophes!), Nathius, Nyre and Phara? As well as the misspelt ones like Aliza, Gavyn and Magdalyn.
But you know what, I really like Emmy Harper, Jem Isaiah, Marielle Summer, Raleigh Annabel, Saoirse Rose, Scarlett Abigail and Wesley Kai.
Sunday’s birth announcements come from all over the U.S. I used to skip over names that were spelled uniquely or with apostrophes, but I feel like it’s a better representation of what is going on out there in the naming world so I started to include them (occassionally). Sometimes I look up a name that I’m not familiar with and find something about them. Very few names come out of nowhere. On some of the ones you listed, I found out these . . .
Brisa: Is a popular name for Latino families, means ‘beloved” It actually charts in the U.S. at #629.
Brogan: Is an Irish name meaning “small shoe”. Not a good meaning, but some parents may like it as a substitute for the popular Logan. It also charts.
Nathius: A last name used as a first name and google found a few people with it as a first name.
Laniah: A German name that means Noble.
Nyre: Is the Danish word for kidney. These parents should have googled it. 🙂
You picked my favorites from the list with Emmy Harper and Scarlett Abigail. I also love Jem Isaiah – I’m a To Kill a Mockingbird Fan.
