I have a confession to make -- I love the Pottery Barn baby names as much as their furniture, blankets and backpacks! In fact, I have noticed that many of their baby name picks turn out to be the hottest names on the playground. Perhaps parents ordering the Lillian twin duvet or the Noah striped bedding get inspired to name their child the same name?
In the name of research, I have flipped through the catalogue and browsed online (and resisted the urge to shop, of course) to search out the best Pottery Barn baby names.
Pottery Barn girl names
Even if you can't have the $1,199 Genevieve hand-carved artisan French bed, you can at least have the name! In fact, just browsing at the name of their mini chandeliers gives us some great girl names, including Mia, Olivia, Madison, Alyssa, Ella, Camille and Lana. Check our more Pottery Barn names here:
Pottery Barn boy names
From seeing the cute name Oliver embroidered on the Pottery Barn Sherpa Trimmed Anywhere Chair to the name Blake on the Mackenzie Spinner luggage, there is no shortage of great boy names. Just taking a look at the names of the boy's bedding gives us some great names, including Greyson, Wesley, Colin, Kingston, Bradley, Ryder and Jackson.
