Career Baby Names
Will your child be a butcher, a baker or a candlestick maker? Perhaps it depends on the baby name!
Some experts suggest that the name you give your child determines his or her destiny... that some names are more likely to ensure success than others. We're not here to debate that. Instead, we're taking a look at baby names that were inspired by specific trades or talents.
Many years ago, surnames were based on a man's profession. Smith, for example, might be a shortened version of blacksmith, which was someone who worked with iron. But it might also be a variation of a whitesmith, silversmith, coppersmith and so on.
So why not apply the same practice to forenames as well? These career-minded monikers don't determine your child's future — but they sure are fun!
