Names in the News: Pixie, Yardley, Calder

Three recent baby name stories:

  • Yardley: In June of 2015, a pair of Baltimore Orioles fans welcomed a baby girl. They named her Yardley, after Camden Yards. (Their first child, a son, is named Camden.)
  • Pixie: In May of 2015, an English baby girl was born 3 months premature, weighing just 1.1 lbs. She was named Pixie “because of her tiny size.”
  • Calder: In September of 2015, Canadian Olympian Meaghan Mikkelson gave birth to a baby boy. She and her husband chose the name Calder with the help of Twitter users. Calder — as in the Calder Trophy and the Calder Cup — can be traced back to Frank Calder, first President of the National Hockey League.

Sources: Premature baby weighing just 1.1lbs put in Tesco sandwich bag to keep warm, O’s fans name their kids Camden and Yardley, Baby born at World Trade Center: First birth since 9/11 attacks, Canadian Olympian Meaghan Mikkelson names son Calder with help from Twittersphere
