I’m a poet and my husband is a songwriter, so when I am pregnant, baby name discussions get intense. Meter, rhyme, syllable count, meaning, history, assonance/consonance with sibling names, we analyze baby names like we are reading James Joyce. It is one of my favorite things about being pregnant.
So lately I’ve been reading the girls Rosemary Wells books and noticed she has a lot of good names for her characters–some already in use pretty frequently in the USA, but others still not heard very often. Here are a few of my favorite, in case you are looking for a baby name recommendation from a real-live Poet:
And the author’s name is also pretty great–Rosemary for a girl, Wells for a boy? Any favorites from this list? We have our fifth baby named and it is none of these, but I’d be happy to name your baby for you.
