An association with a certain fictional serial killer on a popular TV show can’t slow this one down. In fact, the name Dexter is actually growing in popularity.
The coolest cat we know also has one of the coolest, most up-and-coming baby names around. Felix has been gaining popularity since the 1970s and is even bigger in the U.K. than it is in the U.S.
Knox, Maddox & Pax
Thank the Jolie-Pitts for the rise in popularity of this X-heavy trio. (Let’s also thank them for making the rest of us feel like slackers when it comes to good deeds, world travel and fabulous good looks, shall we?)
It’s the hip new nickname for Alexander and the super-hip new nickname-as-first-name option for parents who are so over Alex!
While you may think that this is a case of city names gone too far, many myth-loving parents are inspired to choose this name after the legendary bird that is reborn from ashes. (And anyway, as Arizona cities go, it’s a far better name choice than Lake Havasu City.)
