What’s in a name? Well, it can be everything when you’re naming a child. It determines how they’ll be perceived throughout their lives and even their career paths. So, when people are looking to put pen to paper on what to call their baby, they often reach for music as inspiration or at least some song lyrics or artist. If you’ve been searching far and wide for the perfect baby’s name that has been influenced by music so far this decade (and perhaps beyond), then look no further than our list below!
It seems we’re always on the lookout for inspiration
It seems we’re always on the lookout for inspiration when it comes to naming bundles of joy. And with all the baby names that have been popular over the past decade, it’s not surprising that some of them were inspired by music (or at least pop culture).
The most popular names in America today are influenced by family history, which makes sense, after all, those who are named after grandparents and great-grandparents would want something more than just a short but memorable moniker to remember their relatives by. But what if you had a name that came from somewhere else? That could be interesting too! Here are some other examples:
Some parents turn to their family tree for the perfect baby’s name
While some parents turn to their family tree for the perfect baby’s name, others say that the way they were named can inspire them.
“We think of our names in terms of how they sound and how they feel,” says Rachel Sussman, a marketing consultant who gave her son Alex after his uncle Alex. “And then we look at the people around us and see what other names are popular what was popular when we were born.”
Sussman says she likes names with strong roots: She loves classic monikers like Isaac and Alexander; her husband chose Noah because it’s short.
But others use pop culture as their inspiration
Some parents use pop culture as their inspiration. For example, one parent named their child after a character from the TV series “Sons of Anarchy,” while others used famous musicians’ names as part of their naming choice.
In addition to music and television shows, other sources of inspiration include sports figures such as Michael Jordan and LeBron James; actors like Leonardo Di Caprio or Nicholas Cage; cartoon characters like SpongeBob Square Pants
