There are eight Ivy League universities, and while all eight school names may not make it onto your baby name list, there are tons of names we can tease out from the schools themselves that are pretty awesome (in addition, of course, to the name Ivy itself).
Here are the eight Ivy League schools, and for each, we’ll dive in to see how the schools themselves bring inspiration to our baby name searches.
University of Pennsylvania
OK, so neither University nor Pennsylvania may be your first choice for a baby name, but what about these ideas inspired by the university, its buildings and other notable features?
- Fisher (from Fisher Hassenfeld College House and Fine Arts Library)
- Gregory (from Gregory College House)
- Harrison (from Harrison College House)
- Anne (from Annenberg Library)
Again, we’re not directly inspired to name our kid Brown, but what about these other ideas?
