The Nevaeh Explosion - Nancy's Baby Names

The Nevaeh Explosion - Nancy's Baby Names | Name News | Scoop.it
How the baby name Nevaeh went from small-time to big-time, thanks to MTV and a certain celebrity baby. And: How do you feel about the name Nevaeh these days?
Clare's insight:

A few interesting things going on here.  One is that the first recorded Nevaeh was born in 1904.  Another is how the appeal of this name is in the sound as well as just the "heaven" thing, hence the rise of variant spellings and other names with the -vaeh suffix.

NameFreak!: A *ton of Great Names!

NameFreak!: A *ton of Great Names! | Name News | Scoop.it

" Names that end with -ton are currently quite plentiful. As with -son names, it seems as though parents are adding -ton to other sounds and names to make something not commonly heard. Not surprisingly, most -ton names are masculine, however there are several given to both genders and a few given to girls alone."
