Top 100 baby names number 87
I thought it would be fun to look at the top 100 boys and girls names from last year. I will be doing a series on these with their meanings. Enjoy!
Today we have the number 87s - Martha and Calum.
Martha is the best name. No question. Name your child Martha and she's bound to grow up to be good-looking, charming, intelligent, modest…
On a serious note though, I have really loved seeing my name come back into fashion over the last decade. It’s a biblical name which simply means ‘lady’ or ‘mistress’ (of the house).
Calum is a Scottish name from the late Latin name Columba meaning dove. Columba was popular with early Christians because of the association of the dove with the Holy Spirit. A St Columba is said to have been the person who converted the Scots to Christianity.
