Blue Ivy & The Baby Name Rainbow
It’s been more than a month since Blue Ivy Carter made her world debut, but the fascination with her unusual name has yet to wane. Of course, Blue Ivy isn’t the first baby whose parents sought to “paint the sky blue,” Alicia Silverstone had baby Bear Blu, Cher’s Elijah Blue was born more than 30 years ago, and U2’s The Edge moved Blue into the first name slot for his daughter Blue Angel. Still, Blue Ivy made her entrance and made a splash in name land.
But for many non-celebrities, Blue may seem too “out there” a choice. Here are some other hues that might appeal to parents-to-be drawn to the color wheel.
Tanner- A tradesman name like Mason and Cooper, Tanner also has strength, fun and the popular ‘r’ ending, and is only about as popular as Rodney or Trevor were in 1982.
Cobalt- A blue name had to make the list here. This one might be very rare, but with names like Colt and Colby on the chart, Cobalt doesn’t seem so out of the blue.
