2012 Trend: Place Names
Love ‘em or hate ‘em, we know you look to celebs for baby name inspiration: our list of celebrity baby names was the most-searched for in 2011. Last year they helped set the uber-feminine name trend for girls; for 2012, they just might start a wave of naming kids after countries. Alicia Keys named her son Egypt, and Mariah Carey picked Moroccan for one of her twins. We predict geographically-inspired names will be seen again in 2012.
