Class List Time!

by You Can't Call It "It"! on August 20, 2013

Are you getting nervously excited for the start of school?  My big girl starts Kindergarten, but she’s staying at the same school for one more year so no heartache just yet.  We did get the class lists, and there were some fantastic monikers happening in this next generation.  Highlights from new names in our lives (some from summer activities) include AnnikaCollins (girl), Desmond, GenevieveGusHolland, Louis, Margaret, Mercy, MilaMiriam, Nina, NixonOrla, Oscar, PattonRex, RhysSully, SylviaThatcherViolette, Willa and Willow.  Central Texas has definitely hopped on the name nerd band wagon in a big way.  I can’t tell you how exciting this has been for me.  My children’s names fit in here far better than I ever predicted they would when they were born.

What new names have you come across?  Anything you would love to use yourself?  Share those camp and class lists!  If you feel comfortable, include your general geography too — always interesting to see what the trends are across the country / world.

What a great class list! My middle kid starts Kindergarten too – I’m anxiously awaiting the list next Monday, especially to see if there will be another Henry in his grade. We also have a large Hmong population, so there tends to be new names that I’ve never heard of before.

My 3 year old’s (Jonah) new best friends in his preschool class are Stone and Sydney…both boys. It’s been a long time since I have heard Sidney for a boy and I’m not sure how I feel about the spelling. It seems rather feminine. By the way, we are in suburban Baltimore.

Some other kids in his class (or other friends of his) are:

Boys: Wyatt, Desmond, Jack, Warren, Keyandre (sp?)

Oh…and Tristan (a boy)!

I’ve only ever heard Tristan as a boy’s name.

Reply

6 Stephanie October 4, 2013 at 3:30 pm

I actually new a girl Tristan when I was growing up. She was one of my best friend’s sisters. But, I agree, it is usually used for a boy.

7 Dellitt September 29, 2013 at 12:58 am

I agree that when I see Sydney I’m more likely to think girl than with Sidney. But I think it’s still fine for a boy. Sydnie and Sydnee on the other hand….

And that’s neat to hear it used on a boy.

This summer, I’ve had an Oliver, Miranda, Nora, Shah, Aiden (of course), Louise, Zane, Caleb, Liam and 2 Sophias. Most of the other names are pretty standard (Peyton, Ava, Emma, Michael). I can’t wait for my class list next week. I’m sure I will have some interesting names!

Is Moiraine pronounced like Maureen?

Moiraine is a character from Robert Jordan’s ‘Wheel of Time’ series. In that series, it’s pronounced ‘mwah-RAIN.’

I wish I could get a class list ahead of time. I’m left asking around and at the moment, I only know four kids in my daughter’s first grade class: Sophia, Chloe, Evan, and Hunter.

I live in western Massachusetts in a middle-class former mill town. The kid’s names are very similar to CSB’s class lists in central Ohio.

The most interesting name I have come across was a Cornelius in my daughter’s kindergarten class last year. Another of the more unusual names is Loretta. She was named after her great-grandmother.

One of the other slightly ahead of trend names (for 6 year-olds) besides my daughter (Fiona) is Alice.

Other than that there are the expected names: Ava, Sofia, Ellie (may really be Ella), Autumn, Gianna, Aiden, Nevaeh, Caleb, Braeden. The big names for boys are Evan, Elijah and Keegan. I know at least two under age 7 in my town.

There are twins in my daughter’s class named Elijah and Keegan (I may be misspelling Keegan) and another set of twins (girl/boy) named Nina and Cameron.

There are two girls named Jordan, but one spells it Jordon (after her dad Don) and her mom regrets that spelling now that she sees all the hassle it has caused her in school.

There are a lot of unconventional spellings. There is a Viktoriah. There are other less conventional names with unusual spellings that I can’t even begin to figure out. One sounds very pretty Joo-LEE-ah (like Julia with a stress on the second instead of the first syllable) and the spelling is very complicated.

30 Katybug August 22, 2013 at 6:43 pm

That’s the second mention of Gianna, which I find really interesting. I have a baby niece by that name, and I thought it was quite unusual. Maybe it is more common in other regions of the country?

Reply

31 Angie August 23, 2013 at 11:34 am

Gianna is not unheard of here. I wouldn’t say it’s as common as Sophia, Olivia or Ava but it’s familiar on kids in this area.

My 6 year old daughter has a friend named Gianna and my 11 year old niece in the next town over has a friend named Gianna.

A friend’s baby girl in Nashville is Gianna. She’s close to a year old.

34 Sonny December 17, 2013 at 11:35 pm

Gianna is in the top ten in New Jersey. I think it appeals to Italian-American parents who want something that sounds modern. Most people seem to be mispronouncing it, though (it would be JAHN-nah not Gee-AH-nah in Italian).

Our infant son Wyatt just started daycare and we are learning some names. So far the most unique is Callum (M). Also liking Elliot (M) and Caroline. But by the number of Wyatts on these class lists, I’m sure ours won’t be the only one in class by the time he reaches school age (which we kind of figured).

If our second child is a girl, Holland is my pick for a first name. Funny to see it mentioned in the post — here I thought it was so off the beaten path!

Also last year his beat friends were Rory ( a girl whose sister is named Wren) and Bella (whose sister is named Remi). It seems like around here parents stick with traditional names for boys and ‘play around’ much more with girls’ names. I am due in 4 weeks with a girl who we are naming Adeline Elizabeth and calling Elle. I really am loving the return of the old-fashioned names, and the trend away from the cheerleadery sounding name like my own (Ashley).

I’m actually really surprised to see that there aren’t very many Olivias around despite it being top 5! Which is good for me because we did name our latest addition Olivia, knowing full well of its popularity (even though we don’t personally know any in our circle), because nothing else fit.

Anyway, here are the more notable names of kids around us right now:

Boys:

And then my favorite sib-set:

I go to an all girls private Catholic high school (haha I’m 15) and there are countless Marias, Marys and Maries (middle name). Other than that, there are a lot of pretty interesting names.
Laya Isabel
Marion Frances
Sczyreel (craziest spelling of Cyrille I’ve heard)
Leona Francesca Marie
Victoria Cara
More absurd names:
Esteffany (or Estefanny, either way it makes me gag)
Moley
Cinderella
Rapunzel
There are a lot of Patricias and Beatrices too.
