Diving into research is always fun. Often, the names of children of a family let you know right away which one of your ancestors were avid readers. Growing up around books, and other well read people seem to show in the names of the children. There were some families that only had Biblical names. Biblical names don’t necessarily scream literary. Some people only knew about Biblical characters through going to church.
Today, many of the inspirations for names of children come from Hollywood. I believe people need to keep their child in mind before making such an important decision. Following tinsel town is not for everyone.
