I’ve seen the Apartment Therapy site referred to a million times in name posts on various sites, and while I’ve not gotten into myself, I did love perusing its recent posts on the names that appeared in the last year. Check out the boys’ list and the girls’ list, there are some real gems. There are some great offbeat-ish (dare I say hipster?) Catholicky Catholic names on there (Leo, Oliver, Xavier, Colette, Gemma, Maite et al.), but the one that really jumped out at me was Julip — it’s not often I come across a name that I’ve never seen before that I actually really like, but Julip was definitely one. It made me think of a cross between tulip and julep with an echo of Juniper, really intriguing (though not what I would consider Catholic).
What were your favorite names on these lists? Are you an Apartment Therapy fan?
