Did you hear the one about the lawyers who sent out ballots to name their baby? ATL covered that story yesterday, but what about baby names related to the law?
I named my kid Beatrix, and I love that she has the latin “x” ending. Testatrix is one of my favorite words. What else is there? Here are some ideas:
Portia-a lawyer in Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice.
Lexi– in honor of LexisNexis, of course.
Ally– of the McBeal variety.
Elle-of the blonde variety.
Courtney-you can shorten it to “Court.” This one can go boy, too.
Brandeis-first Jewish justice of the Supreme Court.
Phineas-another famous lawyer.
Atticus-and yet another famous lawyer.
Lawyer-just go straight to it. It sounds like the popular “Sawyer.”
Learned-a famous judge. It just doesn’t sound the same without “Hand” though.
Judge-This one would be really fun if your kid actually ended up being a judge.
What do you think? I’ve got to be missing a ton!
