Right On Trend, A Baby Girl Named Pearl For Jack Osbourne

Right On Trend, A Baby Girl Named Pearl For Jack Osbourne

Jack Osbourne and his finceé Lisa Stelly are the latest stars to strike a the classic-but-creative, not-popular-but-not-unusual balance when naming their new daughter: Baby Pearl (whose grandparents are Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne) was born April 24. 

Earlier this month, we heard that trendsetting namer extrordainairre, Shonda Rhimes, chose Pearl for her youngest daughter's middle name, and we predicted that we'd be seeing a lot more of this gem (har, har) in the future.

Pearl carries a lot of weight as an "old lady" name, due to its mid-1800s popularity peak and subsequent steep drop in usage. It's a fitting choice for parents who appreciate colorful nature names like Violet and Ruby, but want something a little more unexpected. Pearl is unusual enough that it retains an old-timey quirkiness. 

(However, for some it might call to mind Will Ferrell's beerguzzling baby landlord, played by Adam McKay's real life daughter in the Funny or Die clip, The Landlord)

We love the endless options for creativity that new parents (and writers) are discovering with the nature name trend. Here's a look at some of our past coverage on the topic:

What are your favorite nature names? Does Pearl remind you more of old ladies or Will Ferrell?
