We didn’t own a lot of movies when I was growing up, but one year, my mom gave my dad the original Star Wars trilogy for a birthday gift, and I was immediately an enormous fan.
Twenty years later, they are still some of my favorite movies.
Looking through these baby names made me anxious to watch them all again (and even more excited about the news that movies 7, 8, and 9 are forthcoming).
If you’re a Star Wars fan too, check out these baby names inspired by one of the best movie franchises of all time:
Tradition seems to be the winner when it comes to baby names. For the past five years, the top ten lists have budged ever so slightly with the classic and traditional names coming in as the most popular ones in the country. But, what if you don’t want to be traditional? What if you want to step out of the box and name your child something a little more unique?
We went with a semi-traditional name for my son, that isn’t as popular today as it once was. I always said that if I had a boy, he would be named after his father, so his name was picked out long before we started our family. My girls are a little more non traditional, and they rhyme, which I think is kind of cute. We didn’t plan that out; it sort of happened on its own.
I’m a big fan of baby names and while wistfully looking through them the other day, I thought about how fun it would be to put a list together using non traditional baby names that are attractive and appealing.
Do any of the 40 names listed appeal to you?

Whether you are pregnant for the first, third, or twelfth time, it’s hard not to give your baby-in-utero a funny little nickname. Whether you name baby after your #1 food craving or what he looked like at your first sonogram, it’s a fun thing and a cute little way to connect with your baby before you meet. I took a poll on Facebook to see what mamas-to-be nicknamed their little ones before they were born. Here’s what they had to say…

Summer is long gone, which means nowadays all of our water play is happening at bath time. While my little one isn’t a fan of water on her face (unless she’s splashing) she loves playing with her toys in the bathtub. And even though pool days are a thing of the past for us now (unless we find ourselves in the midst of a heat wave) I thought it would be fun to look up some baby names inspired by water.
