After her son Emet Kuli Loeb Hershkovitz was born in 2012, singer/songwriter Lisa Loeb wrote a blog post about his birth and included a few details about his name:
We chose the name Emet because it’s a Hebrew word meaning “truth” that also sounds like a Southern name […] That way my husband’s family from Israel, my family from Texas, and other folks we see on a regular basis can pronounce the name in their own way, but correctly!
Kuli is Roey’s grandfather’s name — actually a nickname — the name he was known by for most of his life. Since he was a very fast soccer player, everyone called him “Kuli” a shortened version of the Hungarian word “kulimász” meaning cart grease, used to make wheels on carts faster.
I love the unique story behind Kuli. Though I am curious to how the Israeli (?) grandfather came to have a nickname that was based on a Hungarian word.
Lisa and husband Roey Hershkovitz also have a daughter named Lyla Rose, born in 2009.

A reader named Skylar is expecting triplets in June. She writes:
I do not know the gender of the babies yet as my husband and I have decided to keep it a surprise. The triplets will be joining and older brother Beckett Wade (Wade after my brother) and Britton Pearl (Pearl after my great grandmother, also my middle name). I am looking for boys and girls names to name the triplets. I do not like common names, I would prefer something trendy to pair with family middle names.
I rarely get requests for trendy names, so this e-mail really stood out.
One great place to look for trendy (or soon-to-be trendy) names is the SSA’s Change in Popularity page, which lists names that increased in popularity from 2008 to 2009. Here are some of the names on that list:
The SSA’s list doesn’t include names that didn’t make the top 500, though, so here are a few more names (from a bit lower down in the rankings) that also increased in popularity from 2008 to 2009:
Do you like any of the above with Beckett and Britton? What other names would you suggest? How about name combinations?
