This weeks names are: Riley & Hayden
This month all the names of the week will be unisex names!
Riley – comes from an Irish surname, meaning “courageous”. I think this name wears well on a boy or a girl. I do prefer the spelling Reilly on a boy. With its friendly, familiar sound, I expect to see the name Riley rise in popularity. Celebrities are also loving this name for their little ones. Holly Marie Combs has a son named Riley Edward and Howie Mandel choose the name Riley for his daughter.
Hayden – comes from an English surname, meaning “hay valley” or “hedged valley”. I associate this name with actors Hayden Christensen and Hayden Panettiere. Hayden is one of the rhyming “Aiden names” – Aiden, Brayden, Caden, Jayden, Zaiden – you get it! Celebrity chef Tyler Florence used the name Hayden for his little boy.
