For many a mum-to-be, the 90s would’ve formed a sizeable chunk of their childhood nostalgia. Of course, nostalgia tends to remember what was with a heavy dose of rosy inaccuracies, but the decade before the millennium really did have some totally awesum stuff going for it; the Spice Girls, jelly shoes, My So-Called Life…(it wasn’t just the era of youth misspent in bomber jackets and cargo pants).
Looking for a befitting name to bestow upon your precious little treasure? Take a look at this sparkly list of birthstone-inspired baby names–all of the finds as gorgeous as their namesakes.
While it may not be hip to be trendy, keeping up with what the in-crowd is naming their offspring can help you stay ahead of the popularity curve – and ensure your chosen baby name is fresh. Use this list as a guide for those monikers that could be monopolising playgrounds in the years to come — or as inspo if you really can’t help but join the masses.
Before you scoff at the title — nope, the reason for mixing up your offspring’s names is not down to stress-induced scatterbrain syndrome – or plain old par-for-the-parenting-course exhaustion. Turns out there’s a sweeter explanation; and it’s spelled L-O-V-E.
