Baby names to survive the zombie apocalypse

Diane Ashoff has a background in mathematics and a keen eye for baby name trends. She lives with her husband and three children in Florida.

Zombie-flick-inspired baby names

You have food, shelter and ammo, but are you really prepared for the zombie apocalypse?

All the supplies in the world won't save your brain from the outstretched fingers of zombies — not without a hero to save the day. We think that bun in your oven might be just the gal — or guy — for the job.

If you're a fan of zombie movies or shows like The Walking Dead, you know they usually don't have a happy ending. Almost everybody turns zombie. Grabbing just any old name from a zombie movie won't do. You need the winners who kick zombie tail and live to fight another day. Join us for a screaming run through zombie film history as we help you choose a baby name fit to survive the worst of what the future has in store.
