Jazz Names for a New Baby
If you couldn't tell from my crack about 10 Songs to Induce Labor in a Pregnant Woman, I've had babies on the brain lately: my brother Thomas and his wife Lisa are expecting at the end of October, and I recently went to a baby shower for them. While everyone jokes about the possibility of a "Harriet Marriott" in the family, I thought I'd bring along some jazz-related suggestions. What do you think?
If it's a boy, call him Jasper.
If it's a girl, call her Jasmine.
Either way, the kid's nickname can be Jazz!
A bit corny, I concede, but it did get a laugh from the family and friends. Okay, not much of a laugh. For a more serious take on jazz-related baby names, take a look at Baby Names from Early Jazz and Blues by Brenna Lorenz.
