To this day, I remember being glued to the television and begging my to let me watch just a bit more of the Magnificent Seven compete at the 1996 Summer Olympics. I was 9 years old, and in complete awe of the precision, athletic ability, and confidence this team had. I thought, "if a pint-sized, young girl could win gold, anything's possible." Olympic athletes have long inspired audiences to strive for the impossible, so maybe your future child will be just as ambitious if you choose from some amazing baby names inspired by Olympic gymnasts.
It's also exciting to see what this year's summer Olympics will have in store. My generation had the Magnificent Seven and it's fun to think about the team this current generation is going to have as their own personal heroes. Perhaps what's so special about the gymnastics team, in particular, is how athleticism, strength, grace, and creativity are all combined to produce amazing moments in Olympic history.
So whether you're currently pregnant while watching the summer Olympics this year or you just have a soft spot in your heart for the world of competitive gymnastics, check out these Olympic gymnastics baby names that will be perfect for your future acrobat.
