My friend is due to give birth next month and the baby girl to be is being named "Summer Joy." When I asked my friend how she came up with the fun and sunny name, she said: "It's summer! This baby will bring much joy!" OK! Plain and simple -- I get it.
She also said her surfer husband, born and raised in Laguna Beach, California, loves summer. What's more, the parents-to-be were married in the summer of 2008 on the beach.
I named my son Jack Domenic after my mom and grandfather.
This got me thinking about other potential names that can be pegged to seasons, months -- even days. There's ...
- Winter (Think Nicole Richie and Joel Madden's daughter Harlow Winter Kate.)
- January (I'm talking about Mad Men actress, January Jones.)
- Sunday (Hey, it worked for Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban -- their toddler girl goes by Sunday Rose.)
- Who can forget Wednesday from The Addams Family?
What about you? Will you name your child after a season, month, or day? Do you think it's silly, cool -- different and unique? Please share your thoughts!
