I have a long history of trying to influence the children around me to become writers. My little cousin has been gifted numerous journals and fun pens as Christmas, and my best friend’s newborn has already been inundated with books. What can I say? I love spreading the good word about, well, words. If you’re also on board with this devotion to writing, why not consider these smart and adorable baby names for future writers? Maybe your little one is destined for a literary career (or at least a pretty quick mastery of the alphabet).
By drawing on the names of famous authors, as well as interesting words related to the writing craft, you can give your baby’s story a fantastic beginning. You child will never have to wonder what’s in a name if hers is so obviously awesome. What better way to kick off a lifelong love of literature?
So for some baby names that are unique, meaningful, and inspiring, look no further than your nearest bookshelf. Don’t worry: I’m not going to suggest you name your kid Chaucer (although that would be AMAZING). There are tons of classic authors with names that would not be out of place in a modern preschool.
