Nerds have gone from geek to chic! Let your geek flag fly while perusing names that are in with the out crowd:

With its studious pedigree (think Einstein, Schweitzer) and classic appeal, Albert scores straight A’s with smartypants parents.

Glee’s Artie Abrams is easily the hip-hoppin’-est nerd on TV and he’s got a nerdy-hip name to match!

Former wallflower Walter is now cool and edgy thanks to its association with Breaking Bad character, chemist Walter White.

Tina & Liz
These days, both read more cheeky than geeky, just like nerdy namesake Tina Fey and her alter-ego Liz Lemon from 30 Rock.

Sheldon, Leonard & Bernadette
These names from The Big Bang Theory have made large leaps in popularity each year the show has been on. Big bang indeed!
