A comedian once noted that coming up with new born baby names gets harder and harder the older you get. This is because as time goes on you will eventually find that every name reminds you of a person that annoys you. This funny statement may ring true for many parents who are in their thirties and having babies.

For generations people have tried to come up with innovative ways to creating unique designation for their little ones. Some of the approaches include using a sir name for their babies. This approach is appealing to anyone who wants to pay tribute to a relative or to the material side of the family. These new born baby names have become so common in the mainstream that they are now thought of as first names.

Common examples of using a last name as new born baby names include designations like Murphy, Jefferson and Madison. While these terms were cutting edge when they were first introduced they are now so common that people who aren’t related to a Madison may still have babies named Madison in their family.

One great example of this approach to naming babies is Humphrey Bogart. My grandmother gave me a drawing created by Maude Humphrey. When Grandma told me that the artist was Humphrey Bogart’s mother I kind-of snickered at the idea that she could think that. In my mind, Humphrey was a first name.

However, once I researched the history of the family I discovered that Humphrey Bogart was named using new born baby names that involved the mother’s maiden designation. Maude Humphrey became Maude Humphrey Bogart after she married. The drawing was completed before the marriage. I was surprised that this was the way that some families got new born baby names for their children. This process seems quite modern to me but it has been in practice for generations.

With new born baby names like Apple floating around it seems that the search for unique designations for little ones is still under way. One approached was used in my family that really turned the practice of unusual names on its ear. My mother is named Annora. She named my sister Aronna, which is her name backwards.

Who knows? Maybe we will have someone named Nhoj or Xam in the future. For now, there are enough new born baby names around but still consider the classics. You baby’s personality will override any of your previous associations with a common name in no time at all.
