Hello, My Name Is Pabst

Baby Names for Nonconformist, Indie, Geeky, DIY, Hipster, and Alterna-Parents of Every Kind
HELLO, MY NAME IS:
AUGUST BODHI MOOSE
That’s my full name. When I was in my mama’s belly, my dad spent nine months playing me Jerry Garcia songs on the guitar. So I guess it makes sense that I was named after a Grateful Dead tune. My middle name, Bodhi, is a nod to Thailand, where my parents lived when they made me. Not sure exactly what that means, but that’s what they tell me. Parents are so weird. My last name is Moose so they nixed the baby names Harry and Grey. Too bad! Here’s me in front of the Christmas Tree. Oh yeah!

HELLO, MY NAME IS:
RYKKER
Yes I am named after a character on Star Trek. Deal with it. It’s a very good place to find baby names, people! And please don’t mistake it for Rikers Island  because it’s spelled different, duh. Though obviously I look REALLY good in orange.

Listen To Your Mother

Hello, friends. It’s almost May and you know what that means: Mother’s Day! Oh yeah. New Yorkers, you should get your tickets now for the third annual Listen To Your Mother Show in NYC! An evening of inspiring, hilarious, and thought-provoking stories about motherhood. Bit.ly/ltymnyc2014

So get a babysitter for Silas, Beatrice, Hopper, and Clementine and mark your calendar for May 4th on the Upper West Side. It’s gonna be awesome.

Non New Yorkers, don’t despair! The show is nationwide and perhaps there is one in your region. 

HELLO, MY NAME IS: 
ABRAHAM EDWIN
I know, what a regal name, huh? But for now, most people call me Abe. This is me in a laundry basket just chillin’. Oh yeah! I like cats, music, and tiny bites of avocado.

HELLO, MY NAME IS:
SILAS DEAN
 Kinda like James Dean. Super cool. I’m two months old but wise beyond my years. You might not know this, but my parents are pretty hip. My dad even has a degree in Fine Arts. Yeah, he’s kind of a big deal. I have an older sister and she’s the leader of the pack. In fact, I think my parents should have just named her Boss, but apparently they thought Charlotte fit her better. Parents are so weird.

 HELLO, MY NAME IS:
ZEKIAH
I was named after Zekiah Swamp and also after my great grandfather’s first farm in Southern Maryland. Pretty cute for being named after a swamp, eh? Mom calls me Zeke sometimes. Yeah, that’s me.
Likes: Music. Especially music found on my mom’s iPhone or played on my Poppop’s grand piano. And also bananas. 
 Dislikes: Orange vegetables (ewww!) and creepy baby dolls.

HELLO, MY NAME IS:
IVY ANASTASIA 

And as you can tell, I’m foxy. I spend most my days chasing our pet huskies around the house. My mom calls me spunky. I call her Muuuuuma. Apparently, they were going to name me Aria Charlotte but then I was born and it was clear that I was an Ivy through and through.

HELLO, MY NAME IS:

KAILASH SOREN

But I go by Kai for short. I’m four years old. Yep. My dad is from India (hence Kailash) and my mom is a philosophy teacher (hence Soren). Yes, I had to pee when this photo was taken…so what?!

HELLO, MY NAME IS:
ORION HUXLEY
My parents liked Greek mythology a lot and wanted to give me a name that had some connection to outer space, too. They got my middle name from Aldous Huxley. I like chewing my fingers, milk, and things that go “squeak.”

HELLO, MY NAME IS: 
NYLE
Nyle is Celtic and means Champion! That’s right. And it suits me because I am a feisty Irish two-year-old. I love cheese, dressing up with my funky bow ties, and having my mama do my hair. My favorite thing on earth is my stinky blanket. My family calls me Nyle Crocodile sometimes which I’m cool with.
