We’re all a bit obsessed with baby names lately, mainly because Shaun and I can’t decide on a single name we both like! So, we turned to Meredith, our editor and resident name expert to help us brainstorm. So…
Hi everyone! Meredith here. With Heidi pregnant and a heated debate starting over what to name the baby, names have been on everyone’s minds at the studio.
What’s my most frequently asked question in the studio? “Meredith, what’s this baby’s name?” With the amount of adorable babies and children that come through the studio every month, it’s sometimes hard to remember each child’s name from the years past. That’s where I come in. Blessed with an elephant’s memory and an affinity for names and their meanings since childhood (alright, let’s be honest, it’s kind of an obsession) I will usually remember the face and the name after one meeting. Growing up, it was unusual for me to meet many other Merediths. Having been born in the mid 80’s, I was surrounded by multiple Jessicas and Ashleys in all of my classes. The only time my name was ever in the majority was one class in college where there are 4 of us. We were all surprised that there were that many of us! I think the relative uniqueness of my name led me to my love of names.
I’m always excited to hear what our clients have named their babies. The statistics are coming out on the most popular baby names of 2011, so we (really just me) decided to look at what our most popular baby names were from our clients last year as some baby name inspiration. So here goes:
Most Popular Girl Names!
We’re doing a big cake smash at the studio today with G to reveal the baby’s gender and Heidi’s even going to jump in front of the camera for a few shots. (I’ll actually be taking the family shots.)
What do you think they’re having? Stay tuned to find out!!
Love, Meredith (the oh so amazing editor ;P)
