Hello everyone! May was an exciting and eventful month at our house (check out that slice of life here) and an exciting month on Beloved Blog. I got to talk about lot of different names this month (though not as many as I had hoped) and I wanted to do a wrap up of all of them.
I got to do a week of Name-A-Day May before I had to give it in order to complete a course I was taking (which I did! Yay!). The names I got to talk about during that week were: Maybelle, Hartley, Claire, Rhys, Zipporah, Bartholomew, Sky, Walker, Socorro, Lazaro, Mercy, Revere, Charlotte, Arthur, Evangeline and Jasper. These are some wonderful names and if you want to learn more about them, click the text or the picture. Also, if you like any of them, be sure to pin them!
I decided to switch over to Names of the Week and so far I've talked about Keturah, Benaiah, Liesel, Arden, Mirabelle and Truett. I'm really enjoying names of the week and I hope you re too! Don't forget to pin your favorites and click for more info!
As far as some of the larger articles, I've done Ways to Get to Theo as a part of my nicknames series. (Check out Ways to Get to Ellie too!)
The SSA put out their list of top 1000 baby names for 2014 this month so had a lot of fun with that as well. I started off by making some predictions about the top ten names based off the 2013 list in the article 2014 Top Ten Baby Name Predictions.
Once the 2014 list came out, I did an analysis of the new top ten, made some predictions, and suggested some alternatives (be sure and pin the lists if you like them!). 2014 Top Ten Baby Names: Thoughts, Predictions and Alternatives.
Finally I revamped my 20 Amazing Unique Girls Names (outside the top 1000) article and added a bunch of pinnable images so go check it out!
I want to do these wrap-ups every month and each month I'd also like to share a link to an article or video from another name lover that I enjoyed watching or reading last month. There were a ton of great articles and videos done in May, especially with the new top 1000 list coming out but the one I'd like to feature is Ren from Ren's Baby Name Blog's Newbies In The Top 1000 article/video. She has a fantastic blog so take some time and scroll through it and Newbies In The Top 1000 is her first youtube video so that's pretty cool! Go check it out!
So there's my baby name wrap-up for the month of May! Thanks for reading and God bless!
