Baby Name Stories: Blake, Kellan, Cheesette

The New Haven Register recently ran an article with a bunch of interesting name-stories. Here are several of them:

Blake: “When we found out we were having a boy, we had a lot of trouble deciding on a name. While driving, the person in front of me had the license plate ‘BLAKE.’ I decided it had a nice ring, but still was not sure until in the next few minutes I stopped at a light right under Blake Street. That was it!” (Rachel Viscio, East Haven)

Cheesette: “It’s not in a book. It’s something no one else would have. Her father had this gorgeous smile, and they nicknamed him Cheese. And my name ends in ‘ette.’ So I put them together.” (Claudette Robinson-Thorpe, New Haven)

Kellan, Cameron, Haleigh (triplets): The names Cameron, Griffin and Jordan had already been picked out, but plans changed when mom’s water broke too early. “They gave me medicine to speed up the lung production, postpone labor, etc., but then something incredible happened. My son on the bottom, which we were going to name Cameron — it was his sack that broke — his sack resealed. […] He held up my other two children for six more weeks. They were all born weighing over 5 1/2 pounds because of him.” (Tricia Neely, Milford)

Other baby names mentioned in the article were Emmalena, Vayda, Doris, Akiva, Yovel, Heleni, Tom, Emily, and Cathleen.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about this outcome is that the top three names all happen to end in -ey. Do you think that’s the key to their appeal?

UPDATE, 11/2013: The first Hailey poll closed a long time ago, but I’ve just opened up a second one – go vote!
