Today we’re talking timeless and historical baby names! And it’s an extra exciting one because the subject of the post is my co-host of this series…. Lauren! My best friend, in case you’re new here.
She’s expecting her first baby with her husband Michael (Michael, Lauren, Jeff and I all went to college together!) and on a personal note I could NOT be more excited to be an auntie again!!!!! This series exists, after all, thanks to our friendship-long obsession with naming babes! 😉 We thought it would be fun to flip the script a bit because as Lauren and I can both confirm now, naming an actual baby feels SO different than the list you’ve been keeping in the notes app on your phone for a decade.
We both had quite a hard time nailing down her naming style, but I feel like once you see her current list it’ll be crystal clear. We landed on timeless and historical names, but there’s a modern flair in there too. Keep reading below and let’s see if we can help her out!!
Hey! Hi there! Hello! Lauren [Stubel] here (bff of the blog, well Kelly). Want to first say a quick thank you! I love being a part of the baby name series and so appreciate the passion and creativity that are shared with every post; thanks for letting me share in that.
So as you now know…I need YOUR help! I am due later this summer with our first baby (a boy!) and while I’ve had my name list FOREVER, now that baby’s heading earth-side, nothing is really making the cut.
I’m a super easy case: Looking for a modern name, that’s not trending/common or overused. It should be somewhat timeless/classic, easily pronounceable, pass the blind date test and would love if it had historical meaning and would make sense if he wears birkenstocks. PHEW!
Here’s what’s currently on her list…
