This is my first post gathering children’s names from Apartment Therapy Family since they changed their name and I began writing for them  (search “Ohdeedoh” for older collections).  In a recent post, editor Carrie McBride notes that names on the wall is one of the biggest kids’ design trends of 2012.  It seems what we call our children has increasing weight, and we want to show off that choice (I too, have my children’s names above their beds).  The image above is from a child’s birthday party in Brazil.

Do you proudly display your child’s name somewhere?

  1. Matilda Magazine Says:

    What stylish choices. I love checking that site just to see the names.

    I love Coralie June, Clementine, Daphne, Etta, Juno, Matilda (of course), Violet & Wren for the girls and Basil, Finn, Fox, Rhys, Sawyer, & Silas for the boys.

    And wow, a boy Willow.

  2. m.e. Says:

    Hah! Funny. When I first read your post title, I thought “Meta Version, that’s a very unusual name…!”

  3. Natalie Says:

    *sigh* I miss reading Ohdeedoh so much, but I could never get over the awkward transition to Apt. Therapy Family. Plus, that “My partner watches porn” post was just so, so offbrand and awful. Ick.

    Ah well, no blog works for everyone. I love Tessa Jean. :)

  4. Carley Says:

    My daughter still has the wooden letters spelling out her name hanging up in her room. I’ll probably do away with them when we redo her room in spring. As a nameaholic, I still want her name somewhere in her room. We’ll probably do a monogrammed pillow or wall decal.

    I like: Alice Mae, Clementine (one of my choices for my daughter!), Coralie June, Daphne, Elliot, Eloise, Elsa, Gigi, Greta, Harper, Jane, Lucia, Lyla, Lyra, Norah, Ramona, Ruby, Sadie, Tessa, Violet, Asher, Bennett, Felix, Finn, Fletcher, Holden, Leo, Levi, Milo, Preston, Russell, Sawyer & Wesley.

    Emmeth is interesting. I kind of want to ponder that one.

  5. Courtney Says:

    so not happy about Elliot being on the girls list. Why, oh, why must the girls steal all of the good boy names. My 2nd son’s name is Eliot.

  6. Waltzing More Than Matilda Says:

    Some gorgeous names here: love Anais, Beatrix, Clementine, Juniper and Violet for girls, and Ari, Eben, Felix, Iggy and Rowan for boys.

  7. Emma Says:

    Elsa twice? Noooo!

  8. Jaime Says:

    I have a 6 year old named Norah so I love that one. And I have huge crushes on Daphne and Greta. Beatrix, Jane and Wren are also faves.

    I have loved Eli and Milo for a long time but Arlo is a new crush. Also love Felix, Bennett, Max, Leo, Levi, Silas and Oscar.

    All three of my kiddos have their name on their walls in wooden letters. Wouldn’t exactly call this a fresh, new trend. ;)
