When choosing a name for my first daughter, I realised that all my fave names were a bit old school. After deliberating for 9 months and only finalising her name in the minutes after she was born, we settled on Olive. A bit different, but not crazy weird, grandma-chic cool or so I thought. However at six-years-old she is pretty annoyed at me for calling her after a food, especially one she doesn’t like.
My daughters are surrounded by kids at school and childcare with old school Hollywood glamour names. Simple and easy to pronounce classy names from a bygone era. I absolutely LOVE this trend and below are some of the fab Hollywood star names making a comeback:
Those Bette Davis eyes. Swoon.
Feminine and sassy.
You gotta love a boy that can dance.
Bound to be a dancing queen.
Hollywood’s original leading man.
Destined to be be the epitome of grace and glamour with this moniker.
“I never said, ‘I want to be alone.’ I only said, ‘I want to be left alone.’ There is all the difference.” You tell them Greta.
“When I’m good I’m very very good but when I’m bad I’m better” – the beautiful Mae West.
Was given the name ‘Buster’ by Harry Houdini after he tumbled down a flight of steps at 6 months unharmed.
How did you choose your children’s names?
