Attention hipsters – this is one list of baby names that you won’t want to miss.
Recently our Babyologists played a game – I asked, what are some of the trendiest, coolest, hippest names of little ones that you know? – either from the classroom, from the playground or from your own friends’ and families’ choices in monikers for their little ones.
And here is what we came up with – 80 truly impressive baby names for the next generation of hipsters out there.
Baby names inspired by rock gods
A lot of the names that our Aussie mums submitted are inspired by some of the very best in classic rock. No, Beiber didn’t make the list.
Baby names for literary buffs
Literary greats (characters in classic books, poets and authors) were another category of inspiration for many of the names suggested.
Baby names for lovers of vintage
What was once popular returns to be hipster.
- Edith (Edie)
Baby names for heaven, earth and beyond babes
Inspiration from the skies, from nature, from flowers and from stones is another common trend in hipster baby names on our Aussie shores.
Baby names inspired by brand names
Naming your child after a type of car, a guitar, a coffee shop, a building, a theatre, a truck or a store? It’s the epitome of hipville for some.
Baby names inspired by animals (real and fictional)
Some are famous animals from television, movies and books. Others are real ones.
Baby names inspired by geographical locations
Oh, the places they’ll go with a hipster baby name inspired by a location.
Misfit baby names too cool for a category
And then there are these ones which are so cool they don’t even fit into a category.
