2015 baby name predictions released

Nameberry recently released their predictions for baby name trends for 2015. The number one trend they forecasted? Defining names like Noble or Saint that say “this baby is virtuous or this baby is powerful … never mind that he’s drooling and has a full diaper.”

Interesting fact … apparently Puritans loved virtue names, but took them to the extreme, sometimes naming their children things like Fear, Silence and Obedience.
