Sweet Pauline


Names have always given me a sense of hope and excitement for new life. I love how people’s faces change when they look at babies. We soften and light up as we look at these little miracles of life. Earlier this week actor Vin Diesel announced that he named his new born daughter Pauline, in honor of his friend and late actor, Paul Walker. I, like many others teared up when I read about this touching namesake.

Paul Walker & Vin Diesel

Paul Walker & Vin Diesel

Pauline is a French feminine form of the name Paul, which means “small”. I love researching the origins and meanings of names, but more than the given meaning, I love the personal meanings and connections people have to names. Little Pauline may never know that her name means “small”, but she will undoubtedly grow up with stories of the man she was named for. I love the story behind the name.

If you’re looking to honor a Paul, here are a few names that could work – Apolline, Apollo, Apollonia, Pablo, Pasha, Paula, Paulina, Paulette, Pauline, Paulo, Paval, Polly, and Pollyana.

Welcome to the world, sweet Pauline,

Names of the Week – Felicity & Declan

header felidecal

This week our names are Felicity & Declan

Felicity – a beautiful Latin name, meaning “happiness and good fortune”.  In addition to it’s delightful meaning, Felicity is an underused virtue name.  The sweet, Colonial, red-headed American Girl doll introduced me to this beautiful name.

Felicity Huffman & Elvis Costello (born Declan Patrick MacManus).

Elvis Costello (born Declan Patrick MacManus)

Declan– an anglicized version of an Irish name, meaning “man of prayer”, Declan would be a great name for a baby boy born on St. Patrick’s day! In fact, Elvis Costello’s birth name was Declan Patrick.  I’d be willing to bet that the world welcomes a few new little Declan Patrick’s this St.Patrick’s Day!

Wishing you a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day,

Names of the Week – Stella & Cillian


This week our names are Stella & Cillian

Stella – a lovely Latin name, meaning “star”.  Sir Philip Sidney was first credited with using this name in a sonnet.  A strong, beautiful name, made iconic by Marlon Brando in the 1951 film A Streetcar Named Desire.  Names ending in “ella” are quite popular for girls.  Stella is currently #70 in popularity in the U.S.

Stella McCartney Cillian Murphy

Stella McCartney & Cillian Murphy

Cillian – is a handsome Irish name, meaning “church”.  The phonetic spelling, Killian, is much more popular in the U.S. If you can get past the first syllable “kill” sound, Cillian makes for a wonderfully charming and underused Irish name in the U.S.

I do think that Elizabeth will be a middle name.

I think that James has strong chance of being a middle name.

What are your royal name predictions?


Loss of Legends


I grew up watching both of these talented performers. Robin Williams’ films illuminated my childhood. He made me laugh till I cried, and cry because my heart was so full. My Mom is a lover of old films and I have many fond memories of cozying up with her on the couch and watching the legendary, and beautiful Lauren Bacall.

As I process and reflect on their passing, the name lover in me wonders if expecting parents who also loved these legends might use their namesakes? Let’s take a little look at their names now.

“Imagination is the highest flying kite” ~Lauren Bacall

Lauren Bacall was born Betty Joan Perske. She choose the surname Bacall, which is a variation of her mother’s maiden name Weinstein-Bacal. In the early 1940’s Howard Hawks gave her her first film break as well as her new stage name, Lauren. The name Lauren didn’t enter the top 1,000 in the United States until 1964. A wildly popular name in the 1980’s and 1990’s, Lauren remains in the top 100 today at spot #91. Lauren comes from the names Laura or Laurence meaning “laurel tree”. The name Betty was number 4 in 1924, the year she was born.  A diminutive of the name Elizabeth, Betty has fallen out of fashion and has not been in the top 1,000 in the U.S. since 1996.

“Comedy is acting out optimism” – Robin Williams

Robin Williams was born Robin McLaurin Williams. His middle name, McLaurin is also his mother’s maiden name. Robin is a diminutive of the name Robert, which was his father’s first name.  Robin is a familiar bird name that also means “bright fame”. In 1951, the year Robin was born, his name was number 209 in popularity for boys in the United States.  Originally a male name, Robin became very popular for women in the United States and was in the top 100 for girls in the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s.  It is no longer in the top 1,000 for either gender today.

Rest in Peace
