While we're on the subject of babies, a college classmate of mine gave birth to a beautiful baby girl yesterday. She named her Isabel Grace, and I thought the name was so elegant and regal and classy -- things you'd associate with classic baby names of the past. But get ready because mini monikers are about to take a turn for the unusual for boys and for girls, at least according to NameBerry, the unique baby name guide.
It got me thinking about the whole classic vs. trendy name debate. Trendy names are fun, sure, but classic names stand the test of time. I mean, think about it. Would you really want your daughter to go through her entire life with a name like Katniss (and yes, that name was on the list...)?
I'd love to know, friends: Would you rather give your baby a classic name or a trendy one? What factors would go into choosing a name? Do you find yourself liking boys' names or girls' names better? xoxo
