Top 100 baby names number 72
I thought it would be fun to look at the top 100 boys and girls names from last year. I am doing a series on these with their meanings. Enjoy!
Today we have the number 72s - Abigail and Blake.
Abigail is from the Hebrew meaning 'my father's joy' or possibly 'my father is joy'. Either way, it's a great name for Daddy's little darling.
Sources are a but confused by Blake. It could come from the Old English 'blæc', meaning someone with dark hair and/or dark skin, or it could be from another Old English word, 'blac', meaning someone blonde and/or light-skinned. In other words Blake has your bases covered colouring wise unless you're like me, somewhere in the middle.
