Holy Hanna. Naming another human being is a BIG task. Like, a really hard decision. Some people choose to carry down the family legacy and name their child after their elders, while others want something unique or less common. Some names are classic and timeless ( you can never really go wrong with that — we named our own baby boy William or Will for short after his grandfather ), while others go for something more outside the box. Having the pleasure of working with so many wee ones throughout my career (both as a newborn / maternity photographer and labour and delivery nurse), I have heard my fair share of unique baby names! In the past year since moving to Victoria, BC, I have had some not only unique, but ridiculously cutely named babies in my studio. I have made a list of some of my favourites, along with their adorable mugshot to go with it — c’mon, who doesn’t like looking at fresh little babes?! I have been keeping a list of name suggestions from local mom groups, friends, or names I’ve heard in passing.
Alas, here is my list, including all of my little babes I’ve photographed in 2016! Make sure to scroll down to see all the cute faces that go with their names 🙂
