Preppy baby name websites are full of atrocious names like Muffy, Buffy, Biff, Chip etc. Maybe that is a northern thing, because none of my friends growing up had names like that. One thing I do love about preppy names is the use of last names as first names or middle names. Some people seem to have a problem with this but I just don't understand. I remember my friend in elementary school telling me that she and her sisters all have family last names as middle names. Her middle name is Greene. I think my last name would make a perfect middle name.
My favorite preppy names all come from kids I went to school with growing up, with the exception of my favorite boy name.
1. Katherine (the only acceptable spelling)
10. Mimi (I admit I only like this one now because of Mariah)
1. Wentworth (the perfect name)
6. Wilson (also my dad's middle name!)
Now I want to have babies so I can use some of these names.
P.S. People. Please stop using Ariel, Isabella, Nala and other variations on Disney names for your children. It's tacky.
