If you are in search for a baby name the Disney classics aren’t the only place to look. The Disney Junior family is filled with members boasting adorable and clever and even timeless names. If you’ve already got a little one you will most likely recognize some of these characters loved by toddlers around the world. Some of the names date back to Playhouse Disney days while others are some of the newest shows to join the Disney Junior family. If you like the names chances are you’ll love the shows (if you haven’t already seen them!). Take a look at a few baby names from Disney Junior shows. If you don’t see one of your favorites here, please be sure to share it in the comments!

With Thanksgiving coming our way tomorrow, I’ve got turkey, stuffing and pie on the brain — a surprising source of inspiration when it comes to baby names!

We’ve gotten a few eyebrows raised when we say our son’s name is just Beck. “No Beckett? Or Beckham?” I get asked. But I like the short and sweet versions of names, especially because our last name of Blodgett isn’t always the most friendly when pairing it with a first name. If you have a long last name, you might be looking for a short baby name too. That is where these one-syllable boy’s names come in. I think you’ll like them.

Bi-cultural and bilingual homes are becoming more the norm these days. In our home, we speak both English and Spanish. I am Chilean, my husband is from Wisconsin, and we have agreed to raise our children bilingual.
When deciding on names for both of our children, we agreed that we wanted strong names that could work in both English and Spanish so that neither side of the family was left out. Meaning, we wanted his parents to be able to pronounce them and my family too.
Also, for me it was important that my children’s names reflect who they are culturally and for them to have a connection to their Chilean roots. I just couldn’t not name my children Spanish names — it wouldn’t feel natural, and I am thankful my husband agreed. Besides, we found names that worked perfectly in both languages! Yep, Little L is Lucía and M is Matías.
I know there are many, MANY families in our situation wanting to give a nod to their Hispanic background — so I put together a list of boys and girls names that work in both English and Spanish. Of course, there are tons more, but here’s a selection of my favorites. Maybe a few have accents, but that doesn’t matter; what counts is that it is easy to pronounce and read.
