Top Chef Baby Alert: Zuzu Peterson
Yes, Zuzu, just like little Zuzu from the classic holiday film, It's a Wonderful Life. Zuzu is one of those high-Scrabble value names that so many contemporary parents love, but also one that many are trepiditious to choose for fear of being "too out there." (In fact, when you heard Zuzu, you may have thought "Zhu Zhu Pets" before you thought "It's a Wonderful Life.")
However, Zuzu really is a classic name, or at least a classic nickname. The name Zuzu comes from Zuzana a Czech/Slovak form of Susana, according to BabyNameWizard.com. We're actually kind of surprised that this is the first celebrity baby named Zuzu in our Celebrity Baby Names Database. And paired with the middle name Audrey, which recalls 1950s-era film star Audrey Hepburn, we think Zuzu has a sweet mid-century flair.
Do you agree? What do you think of the name Zuzu Audrey? Do you have any favorite names that you're considering but you fear are too "out there"?
