Welcome to #Namemas, a collaborative name celebration and Christmas Countdown.
On the 9h day of Namemas TulipbyAnyName gave to me the baby name Waverly.
Major General Tom Waverly is a beloved character in the wonderful musical film White Christmas.
White Christmas has a range of traditional names like Tom and Phil, as well as some not-so-current names such as Judy and Betty. Let’s look at the Major’s surname, Waverly, which makes for a wonderful modern choice. An English surname meaning quivering aspens, Waverly was only used by 120 girls and 6 boys last year. The cast of White Christmas actually has some pretty neat names as well; including Crosby for Bing Crosby and Rosemary for Rosemary Clooney.
