Isko Names ‘I-Skool’ Awards Winners

MILAN — Leading Turkish denim mill Isko celebrated the winners of the fifth edition of its Isko I-Skool fashion competition this week in Milan, at Base venue, a former locomotive plant, with a fashion show, ceremony and party.
The competition — which saw 216 applications submitted by fashion students hailing from countries including the U.S., China, Italy and South Korea, among others — was dedicated to upcoming fashion designers and marketing students. The 20 finalists’ works were evaluated by the judging panel presided over by siblings Sarah and Carol Piron, founders of Belgium-based brand Filles a Papa.
The denim design contest challenged the talents to develop a manifesto and a collection around the “Undocumented” theme, focusing on an innovative and responsible take on denim, while keeping the marketability of the piece in mind. “This is an opportunity for us to share our knowledge and our vision with the younger generation… ‘Undocumented’ to us means crossing the borders, pushing the limits,” said Isko’s brand director Fabio Di Liberto.
The recipient of the Undocumented Award for the best denim design was Jaeha Im from Seoul-based ESMOD fashion school. The designer showcased a men’s wear outfit, which referenced the traditional way of dressing of his native

Rochas Names Federico Curradi to Head Men’s Fashion

Rochas has named a new creative director for its men’s wear activity, which it put on hold last year after only two seasons.
The Interparfums-owned fashion house said Italian designer Federico Curradi will be charged with bringing “a new attitude” to Rochas men’s wear going forward. The brand is expected to relaunch in January 2019.
“I am sure Rochas can find its own place in the men’s wear industry and Federico has the talent to bring Rochas to a next level,” stated Interparfums Group and Rochas chief executive officer Philippe Benacin.
Curradi, a native of Florence, launched his own men’s wear label, which shows in Milan, in January 2016 at Pitti Uomo. The designer, who lives in the Florentine countryside, is also creative director of outerwear specialist Peuterey. Born in Florence in 1975, after living in New York for several years he moved back to Italy, first working at Ermanno Daelli, then as head of the men’s styling office at Ermanno Scervino and later becoming head of the men’s collection of Roberto Cavalli in 2005. A year later, he began working at Iceberg on the company’s men’s wear as a consultant. He was also Iceberg’s first men’s wear creative director, succeeded by James

International Talent Support Contest Names Winners

TRIESTE, Italy — International Talent Support — also known as ITS — is back. The 16th edition of the event aimed at promoting the next generation of young designers and offering them financial support, as well as publicity, named its winners on Wednesday here.
The contest went through a one-year hiatus due to scarcity of funds and the loss of two longtime sponsors. Barbara Franchin, founder and director of the talent scouting competition, said this caused a “shock” and she “decided to stop and take time to reflect on what we’ve done, who we are, what’s the contest’s purpose, focusing on the people we helped, if we actually helped any.” Answers came via ITS’ longtime supporters and its team, leading Franchin to bring the contest back.
An international jury gathered at the Magazzino 42 venue, a former warehouse on one of the Italian city’s many piers, to evaluate the works of 30 finalists selected among more than 900 applications ITS received from students from 80 countries. The projects were divided into four categories: fashion, accessories, jewelry and artworks. Collections were showcased with a runway show, while the other projects were displayed through a dedicated exhibition.

CASTELFRANCO VENETO, Italy — Leading Turkish denim mill Isko has unveiled the finalists for its Isko I-skool Denim Talent Awards with a three-day trip to the company’s Creative Room design and research headquarters here, from March 18 to 20.
The award ceremony for the best designs will take place in July, although a date and location have yet to be disclosed.

H&M Names Five Winners of Global Change Award

PARIS — Hennes & Mauritz AB named the five winners of its Global Change Award, and asked the public to vote online for one of them to help split the 1 million euro prize.
The fashion industry, including fast-fashion groups that offer inexpensive clothing at cutthroat prices, is under pressure to rein in waste as public awareness of environmental issues gains ground.
Winners were: Crop-A-Porter, which makes textile from food crop harvest leftovers; Algae Apparel, which uses algae as a dye; Smart Stitch, which makes dissolvable thread; The Regenerator, which separates cotton and polyester blends for recycling, and Fungi Fashion, which makes clothes from decomposing mushroom roots.
“All industries need to re-think, innovate and challenge status quo,” said H&M chief executive officer and board member Karl-Johan Persson.
The company noted that applicants offered a broad range of ideas, but that most of the solutions came from outside the fashion industry.
“This year’s Global Change Award winners are about disrupting business-as-usual to help transition us to a low-carbon and circular economy,” noted Vikram Widge, who heads climate finance and policy for the International Finance Corporation, and was a member of the award’s jury.
The winner of the public vote in the competition, now in its third year, will

International Woolmark Prize Names European Finalists

MILAN — The International Woolmark Prize revealed its European regional finalists here on Tuesday, with David Laport and L’Homme Rouge winning for women’s wear and men’s wear, respectively.
The winners will receive 70,000 Australian dollars as a contribution to develop their final collection to be presented at the international finals that will take place in Florence in January.
Winners of the final competition will earn an additional 200,000 Australian dollars to invest in the development of their business and the opportunity to have their collections distributed by prominent retailers, such as Harvey Nichols in the U.K, L’Eclaireur in Paris and Boon the Shop in South Korea.
For the regional competition, Dutch designer Laport realized a feminine orange dress crafted in Merino wool crepe fabric and inspired by David Hockney’s “A Bigger Splash” painting.
“He walked in and I just though ‘wow’ at first sight, without even speaking,” said Edward Buchanan, creative director of the Sansovino 6 label, who was part of the women’s wear judging panel. “There was a simplicity and a joy, which we’re missing in fashion right now,” he added.

Jessica Alba’s Names Her Mentor And You’ll Never Guess Who It Is

Jessica Alba might have earned her fame and fortune from starring in television shows and Hollywood films like Fantastic Four, but the actress-turned-entrepenuer is now all about her business The Honest Company. Founded in 2011, the billion dollar non-toxic goods empire provides customers with healthy, sustainable home cleaning, baby and beauty products.

As Alba continues to expand the fast-growing business and team up with big store chains like Target, one could only help to wonder where she found the ambition to step into the business industry. The 36-year-old actually took the leap into entrepreneurship with the inspiration of one person she calls her mentor: director James Cameron.

Because of Carmeron—who directed blockbusters like Titanic and Avatar—and his determination to film the wreck of the Titanic ship when there was no technology to do so, Alba felt that there was no reason she couldn’t do something out of her element. That’s when The Honest Company was born.

“The way James operated hit me hard. It opened my mind to the idea that it didn’t matter what had or hadn’t been done before, or how seemingly insurmountable the task,” she revealed. “If you really want something, you go after it. You create a new reality.”

She added, “James didn’t start off as an inventor or an engineer. But he found a way to fill the gaps where technology was lacking, resulting in groundbreaking advances in the film industry. I didn’t have a background in business. But I saw a need and felt compelled to act.”

Alba shared her game changing moment as part of a new career series on LinkedIn that features other celebrities like celebrities including Kumail NanjianiRachel Zoe and more.

New Names, Resort-Focus Energize Australian Fashion Week

SYDNEY — New names, Liberty print swimwear and unisex surfwear were among the biggest buyer takeaways from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.
Now in its 22nd year, the annual event pushed dates back several weeks to rebrand itself from a spring to resort showcase last year, resulting in a 75 percent increase in international buyer attendance over 2015, according to organizer IMG.
The company said it expects this year’s eight-day event, which concluded Sunday with a weekend of ticketed consumer presentations of the week’s highlights, to have drawn a cumulative attendance of 30,000.
Among them were a contingent of 33 international delegates, including 23 buyers — a number on par with 2016 — from New York, London, Paris, Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Dubai. Airfares and accommodation were covered by the event.
More than 80 brands from Australia, New Zealand and China were showcased in 42 solo and group runway shows and a new IMG-operated “Designer Suites” showroom located at the event’s central hub for five years, Redfern’s Carriageworks.

13 Awesome Baby Names That Pay Tribute To Famous Icons

We know that celebrities inspire popular baby names, from Audrey (Hepburn) to (John) Lennon. But celebrities also choose famous names for their children, with actors and musicians paying homage to legendary stars with their name choices.

Our report on this trend from a few years back highlighted picks like Mariah Carey’s Monroe and guitarist Slash’s Cash.

The trend hasn’t slowed down one bit! Those names remain in the headlines, but there’s a whole new class of celebrity baby names inspired by stars.

Bowie

Baby name Bowie made our original list, thanks to Rebecca Minkoff’s daughter, Bowie Lou. Since then, Zoe Saldana has welcomed a son named Bowie, as have Tess Holliday, and Dane DeHaan and Anna Wood. One reason for the acceleration? The early 2016 passing of music legend David Bowie has put this musical surname in the same class as Marley and Hendrix.

Presley

Jackson Rathbone’s younger child carries a doubly musical name: Presley Bowie. The middle is both a family name and a tribute to the late singer. Rathbone noted that Presley combines their family’s Southern heritage with a rockabilly vibe. After all, when the “Twilight” star isn’t acting, he’s also a musician. They’re not the first family to name a baby after Elvis: nearly 2,000 newborn Presleys entered the world in 2015 alone.

Etta

Carson Daly and Siri Pinter welcomed daughter Etta in 2012, just a few months after legendary singer Etta James passed away. Jazzy and sophisticated, Etta makes a logical successor to favorites Emma and Ella. It’s currently right outside of the U.S. Top 1000 list, but has risen steadily over the last few years.

Arlo

Legendary folk singer Arlo Guthrie’s unusual given name has become a rising favorite with plenty of parents. Leighton Meester and Adam Brody gave the name to a daughter; so did Johnny Knoxville. But we like this best for a boy, as chosen by actress Toni Collette, and more recently, English musician Charlie Simpson.

Axl

Fergie’s name for her young son came to her in a dream. The singer imagined herself watching legendary Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose perform at a festival. When she awoke, she and husband Josh Duhamel instantly knew it was the name for their son. Traditional Scandi Axel has history galore, but lately rock ‘n’ roll Axl is trending, too.

Greta

Count Greta as an early starbaby example of the trend – Kevin Kline and Phoebe Cates gave name to a daughter years ago; so did David Caruso. But Ty Burrell of “Modern Family” puts Greta on the list of recent celebrity baby name picks. It brings to mind screen legend Greta Garbo, fitting right in with girls called Audrey and Ava.

Harlow

Nicole Richie chose a glam girl name when she and Joel Madden welcomed their daughter in 2008. Harlow comes from Jean, the original Blonde Bombshell of the 1930s silver screen. Plenty of other parents followed her lead, sending the name soaring. In 2015, “American Idol” alum Kimberly Caldwell welcomed a daughter with a double dose of blonde ambition: Harlow Monroe.

Hemingway

Parents love literary Harper and Holden. No surprise we’re looking for similar inspiration. Ben Hollingsworth of “Code Black” chose a little-used literary surname for his son last year: Hemingway, as in Ernest. The author is remembered for his writing, but also for his love of travel and sense of adventure. It makes a powerful combination for a child’s name.

Dusty

Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo have yet to confirm the reasons behind their daughter’s distinctive name ― though we know that Ellen DeGeneres suggested Dusty. Could it be inspired by 1960s icon Dusty Springfield, who recorded hits like “I Only Want to Be With You” and “Son of a Preacher Man”? It’s a fitting choice for the daughter of a singer and a supermodel.

 

Everly

The Everly Brothers were among the first class of musicians inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in 1986. Anthony Kiedis, frontman for 2012 inductees Red Hot Chili Peppers, was among the first to use the name, for a son in 2007. But it’s Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan who sent the name skyrocketing, after they welcomed daughter Everly in 2013.

 

Isley

Glenn Howerton of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” fame solved the baby naming puzzle when he heard a song by the Isley Brothers. With singles like “This Old Heart of Mine” and “It’s Your Thing,” the brothers scored a string of hits in the 1960s and 70s. Today, their surname name fits right in with names like Riley, Miles, and even Isaac and Isaiah.

Montgomery

Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen prove that Old Hollywood works for boys’ names, too. The couple named their third child, and first son, Montgomery in 2015. A year later, “The Young and the Restless” actor Greg Rikaart also gave the name to a son. Oscar-nominated actor Montgomery Clift used the nickname Monty; so do these newest little stars.

Ozzie

Max Greenfield is yet another dad to find a name that nods to his musical hero – Ozzy Osbourne. Son Ozzie James arrived in 2015. In an interview, Greenfield joked that it was an appropriate name in case his son turned out to be “a maniac.” Osbourne himself was born the much milder John Michael.

After tying the knot, newlyweds are faced with yet another big decision: should they change or keep their last names?

While many women still go the traditional route by taking their husbands’ surnames, more and more heterosexual couples are exploring alternatives such as taking the woman’s last name instead, hyphenating their names or creating a new last name altogether. Below, 13 men on Whisper ― an anonymous secret-sharing app ― explain why they opted to take their wives’ last names post-marriage.

This Tweet About Pet Names Could Change Your Relationship For The Better

Most couples come up with pet names for each other fairly early into a relationship: Baby, babe, boo, sweetheart ― we all have our faves.

While those are all classics, there’s nothing wrong with switching things up every now and then. Last week, Twitter user @cybersygh suggested doing just that and it really caught on: 

Things escalated quickly after that, when Bela Garces (@djbbga on Twitter) showed the tweet to her boyfriend Isaac and posted his reaction:

Isaac loved the idea:

He got a little carried away but it was adorable:

Garces’ hilarious tweet quickly went viral, with over 87K reshares and 241K “likes.”

The 19-year-old told The Huffington Post she couldn’t stop laughing at the nicknames and that Isaac hasn’t stopped since. 

“It just makes me laugh every time, it’s so silly,” she said. “He calls me food names in person too, and I try to call him food names back but he’s a lot funnier. My favorite is when he calls me Colombian snacks since we’re both Colombian!”

Here are the two adorable soft tacos together, with one of their favorite foods:

After Garces’ tweet went viral, people kept the momentum going, sharing the food-related terms of endearment they’d texted their girlfriends and boyfriends:

Does it get any more romantic than “you’re more than a snack, you’re a meal?” Nope, not as far as we’re concerned.

Share your favorite snack-related pet name in the comments.

Calzedonia Group Names Winners of Verona’s Arena Contest

Calzedonia Group’s president Sandro Veronesi and Verona’s mayor Flavio Tosi revealed the winners of the competition dedicated to the city’s renowned Arena on Jan. 31, at the Politecnico university in Milan. Launched last March with the sponsorship of the Italian underwear and stocking specialist Calzedonia, the international contest aimed at selecting the best ideas for the creation of a movable covering for the Roman amphitheater was won by the group of architects SBP & GMP.
“The Arena is a unique historic-architectural reality worldwide,” said mayor Tosi, underscoring that the main goal of the contest was to ensure the protection and conservation of the building and to improve its functionality in hosting public events. Tosi mentioned how every year, about 14 million euros, or $ 15.1 million at current exchange, are invested in protecting Verona’s symbol from bad weather. “The rain is the major enemy of the Arena,” he said, explaining how this is causing fallings in the structure.
First introduced in 1995, the idea of creating a 129,167-square-foot movable covering was never really discussed since last year, when it was presented to the government’s ministers, who asked to receive real projects in order to evaluate the actual feasibility of the concept.
Veronesi contacted mayor Tosi

The Most Notable Baby Names Of 2016

The defining event of 2016 may have been the presidential election, but the political names that hit the headlines ― notably Donald, Hillary and Bernard ― are unlikely to find themselves on an overwhelming number of new baby birth certificates. And so for Nameberry’s “Names of the Year,” we’ve mostly looked beyond politics to other bold names that reflect current trends and are prime to inspire baby names of the future.

Bowie

Though the music world lost three beloved, iconic figures this year ― Prince, David Bowie and Leonard Cohen ― it was Bowie’s adopted surname (he was born David Jones) that almost immediately became a viable name for babies. Bowie wasn’t totally unheard of as a baby name before, but now has shot up to number 453 on Nameberry, and become an instant celebrity fave. Actor Jackson Rathbone (Jasper Hale in “Twilight”) even chose Bowie it for his daughter Presley’s middle name.

Maeve

In October, the new hit series, “Westworld,” premiered on HBO. The action takes place in a futuristic Wild West theme park, where the residents are not what they seem. Thandie Newton plays park host Maeve Millay. No spoilers here, but know that the sharp, simple Irish name was originally worn by a warrior queen. It’s the latest in a long line of Irish baby names to catch on in the U.S., currently ranked in the top 500 and rising.

Lin-Manuel

”Hamilton” dominated Broadway this year, becoming a perpetually sold-out, must-see show ― a mix of rap and musical theater unlike anything before it. It earned a record-setting 16 Tony Award nominations, winning 11, along with a Grammy and a Pulitzer Prize. At the center of it all is actor, rapper, composer, and MacArthur “Genius Grant” recipient Lin-Manuel Miranda. A native New Yorker of Puerto Rican descent, Miranda’s first name comes from a poem about the Vietnam War, “Nana Roja Para Mi Hijo Lin Manuel.”

Wilder

Wilder appeals to parents for plenty of reasons. It’s preppy and outdoorsy, an unexpected name with an on-trend sound.  It may even be the William of the future. Wilder makes the Names of the Year list thanks to the late comic actor, Gene Wilder. The star of “Young Frankenstein” and “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” passed away in August. Born Jerome Silberman, Gene Wilder took his stage name from American writer Thornton Wilder, reminding us that the name is nicely literary, too.

Boomer

New dad Michael Phelps joked that his son would “definitely be the cool kid” thanks to the distinctive name he and wife Nicole Johnson chose for their May 2016 baby. Boomer’s not just another celebrity kid. The Olympian’s son commands over 750,000 Instagram followers of his own. While there may not be many babies named Boomer, going with your heart and making a name by appending –er to the end of any beginning are two of the lessons we predict this upbeat name to promote.

Simone

This French classic got a double shot of adrenaline when not one but two Simones became shooting-star record breakers in the 2016 Rio Olympics: Simone Biles was the vault and floor gold medalist, setting a U.S. record high of four medals in a single Olympics, while Simone Manuel became the first African-American female swimmer to win a gold medal. The name also was borne by two prominent French writers ― feminist Simone de Beauvoir and philosopher/writer Simone Weil who could provide further inspiration.

Wrigley

When the Chicago Cubs pulled off their astounding World Series win this year, ending a 108-year championship drought, their fans went ballistic, and some of them wanted to honor the team in their offsprings’ names. But rather than call their cubs Cub or Ben or Bryan or any other player name, they may discover a more subtle and circuitous reference: Wrigley ― for the name of the winners’ playing field. Miss America 2009 Katie Stam used it after losing a bet to her husband when the Cubs won the Series. And that baby Wrigley (better than Wiggly) likely won’t be the last!

Aziz

Aziz Ansari is the creator, writer and star of the innovative Netflix show “Master of None,” representing the impressive strides made this year in the diversification of the TV landscape. Ansari, who is the son of Muslim immigrants from India, tackles serious cultural issues in a smart, satirical, witty way. The lively and colorful name Aziz, which means powerful, respected and beloved, is common in the Muslim world. There’s even a girls’ name equivalent, Aziza. 

Bruno

 

The unstoppable Bruno Mars released his third studio album in 2016, won two Grammy Awards, and became one of the few performers to appear at a second Super Bowl halftime show. That’s quite the year, and it’s safe to say that parents might take note of his distinctive first name. Born Peter Gene Hernandez, Bruno is the singer’s childhood nickname. We may also see more babies named Mars.

Cuba

One of the big stories of the year was the restoration of diplomatic relations between Cuba and the U.S. after 50 years, followed by the death of leader Fidel Castro in November. Apart from its political reverberations, Cuba is a geographical place name (it was on the popularity lists back in the 1890s), associated with Oscar-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr., whose roots are not in Cuba but Barbados. With place names for babies now hot and parents looking beyond the popular Savannah and London, Cuba may enjoy wider use.

Ivanka

In the sea of ordinary names most visible during this tumultuous political cycle, the name of the President-elect’s influential daughter stands out as one of the most distinctive. Ivanka is quite common in Slavic countries as a nickname for Ivana (her mother’s name). Despite its exotic appeal, it’s likely to remain a single-celebrity name in the U.S. for the foreseeable future. Ivanka’s larger impact on girls’ names may be inspiring parents to name their daughters after their moms.

Alden

 

Alden Ehrenreich is slated to play the young Han Solo, aka the new pilot of the Millennium Falcon, in a new “Star Wars” spin-off film. Steven Spielberg himself discovered Ehrenreich a dozen years ago at a bat mitzvah. The actor has worked steadily since, but Solo should prove to be his biggest role by far. We’ve yet to meet many children called Han, but Alden fits right in with current favorites like Landon and Aiden.

12 Thanksgiving-Themed Names For November Babies

If you’re still looking for a name for your late November baby, there are several interesting baby names tied to the Thanksgiving holiday, from arrivals on the Mayflower to those who established it as a national holiday to the perennial parade. Here are some of the best Thanksgiving-related names.

Alden

John Alden sailed on the historic Mayflower’s 1620 voyage to America and became a prominent member of the Plymouth Colony, also remembered as a famous rival of Miles Standish for the love of Priscilla Mullins. Alden, which means “old friend,” is currently ranked at number 720. It was on the Social Security Administration’s top 500 names list from 1911 to 1932 and may become more popular again, thanks to Alden Ehrenreich, the new young Han Solo.

Amity

Virtue names were popular with the Puritans, and many ― beyond the expected Hope, Grace and Faith ― are usable today. Amity, which means friendship, is a neglected gem, and others we love equally well are Verity, Mercy and Clemency ― all aspirational virtues in the modern world.

Elias

In 1789, New Jersey Representative Elias Boudinot presented a resolution to Congress requesting it to persuade President Washington to declare a thanksgiving observance to celebrate the new U.S. Constitution. His Greek name Elias, now ranks at a solid number 200, following in the wake of biblical original Elijah. It also ranks fifth among the most popular baby names in Sweden.

Josepha

For 36 years, Sarah Josepha Hale, author of “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” campaigned to establish Thanksgiving as a national holiday. Sarah, of course, is a biblical classic, but her middle name, long neglected, could make a more distinctive girl’s namesake for Joseph than Josephine. It’s Josefa in Spanish.

Lugh

Most of the ancient deities associated with the harvest are goddesses like Ceres, Demeter, Parvati. But one of the few males in the pantheon ― and bearing one of the most interesting mythological names ― is the Celtic Lugh, pronounced Lou, and is also known as Llew in Welsh myth. 

Macy

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has been a NYC tradition since 1924, when it featured the store’s employees in costume, animals from the Central Park Zoo and a Mickey Mouse float. The upbeat name has been largely associated with musician Macy Gray, who was born Natalie McIntyre, but its use is now spreading. It’s currently at Number 413, and was chosen by actress Edie Falco for her daughter.

Maize

Corn was one of the principal crops of the early Plymouth colonists and a staple of their diet, so it is no surprise to find it the first Thanksgiving table. Maize is also a color name, and sounds like a cute shortening of Maizie. It’s one of the unique baby names that may appeal to adventurous parents.

Oceanus

Oceanus Hopkins was the only baby born on the Mayflower’s maiden voyage.  His name is doubly on trend, as both a water name and a Latinate appellation ending in us. In Greek myth, the Titan Oceanus was believed to be the father of rivers and water nymphs.

Peregrine

Peregrine White, brother of Resolved, was an in utero passenger on the Mayflower, the first known English child born to the Pilgrims in America, on the ship when it was docked in Provincetown. Often heard in the British aristocracy, Peregrine has never crossed the pond, despite its standing as both a saint’s and bird name. “Downton Abbey” creator Julian Fellowes, not surprisingly, used it for his son.

Tom

Every poor turkey sacrificed for the feast’s table is a Tom ― the generic name for a male turkey. Though among the most classic nicknames for boys, Tom has been off the U.S. list since the early 1990s. But it’s a top 50 name in Ireland, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and France, where it’s number 13! Tom could rise to popularity again here à la Sam and Ben.

Thursday

Thanksgiving has been the last Thursday in November since George Washington’s day, solidified by an Abraham Lincoln 1863 proclamation. As for the name, we’ve see famous examples like Sunday Rose Kidman Urban, Tuesday Weld and Wednesday Friday Addams. Could it be Thursday’s turn next?

Truman

It was President Harry Truman who started the tradition, in 1947, of “pardoning” a turkey or two and sending them into retirement on a farm. The name Truman carries the aura of that president’s character and reached its highest point in the year of his inauguration, 1945. It’s now just inside the top 1000

The 23-year-old Springfield, Ohio, native had played quarterback for the Ohio State Buckeyes from 2011 to 2013 and was switched to wide receiver for the team last year. In addition to his athleticism on the field, Miller also has an affinity for fashion. He recently launched a line of T-shirts on his own Web site featuring his most famous play, the Spin Move from Sept. 7, 2015 against Virginia Tech, and Charging One-Way, which features an illustration of a battery. The association with Philipp Plein marks his entry into the luxury fashion arena.
“With Philipp Plein setting its sights on the U.S. market, it is only natural that we partner with a unique talent like Braxton,” said Feliciano Robayna, director of sports marketing for the Swiss brand. “We are thrilled to be a part of this young man’s journey, as he prepares to make an impact in the NFL. His leadership, confidence and passion to succeed are qualities that personify our brand.”
Miller will wear a total Philipp Plein look for the draft that will be held

Playboy Names America’s 25 Sexiest Cities, New York Tops The List

Forget the best cities in the country. Playboy magazine released its list ranking America’s 25 Sexiest Cities on Wednesday and we’re already contemplating a move.  

According to the magazine, the list was determined by two separate polls that looked at metrics including nightlife, general lifestyle habits and “an undercurrent of desire.” So it’s not exactly scientific.

New York City ranked #1 on the list, mainly because its residents were into “kinky” things and a LOT of sex. “The people are hot, the sex is prime quality and the frequency is high, averaging 138 times per year,” wrote Playboy. Considering NYC has the Museum of Sex and a topless book club, we have to agree with the ranking. 

Scroll down to look at the cities that made the top 10 and head over to Playboy to see the rest:

Fashion East Names Spring 2016 Women’s Wear Lineup

LONDON — Fashion East, the London non-profit organization that showcases emerging designers’ collections, has detailed its women’s wear lineup for spring 2016.
The three labels that will host presentations on Sept. 19 in London are Caitlin Price, Richard Malone and This is The Uniform.
Price is showing for the second time as part of Fashion East, after making her debut with the collective in February. Then, the Central Saint Martins MA graduate showed a collection that melded 19th-century period details with sportswear, as in duchesse satin tracksuits appliqued with rosettes.
Richard Malone and This is The Uniform are both showing as part of Fashion East for the first time. Malone is graduate of Central Saint Martins’ BA fashion program, where he won the LVMH Grand Prix scholarship in 2013, while This is the Uniform is designed by Jenna Young, who graduated in fine art textiles from Goldsmiths University in London.
Lulu Kennedy, Fashion East’s director, commented that “all three designers are strong-minded individuals and their girl/woman knows what she’s about,” she said.
The spring 2016 season marks Fashion East’s 15-year anniversary of showing at London Fashion Week, and 12 years of Topshop supporting the showcase.

5 Reasons to Merge Last Names When You Marry

When I (the Lo of Em & Lo) got married, my groom and I wore matching white suits and ties (including inscribed white Converse high tops). Our parents walked each of us down the outside aisles simultaneously until we all met in the middle at the altar. My friend who married us concluded the ceremony with “You may now kiss the groom.”

So it should come as no surprise that I kept my last name. As a modern feminist, there was no way I was going to submit to the anachronistic, sexist tradition of taking my husband’s last name. Plus, my name was way cooler than his: Sharkey vs. Cavella? Come on, there’s no contest. If anything, he should have taken my last name and become Mr. Sharkey.

But once we started to spawn, we wanted to simplify. We’d retain our last names for our respective work purposes, but for family affairs we wanted to be a united front. If he wasn’t going to take my last name (because why should either one of our names get special preference?), then we needed another option. For us, merging was the most elegant solution. 

Unfortunately, Sharkey and Cavella do not combine in many flattering ways. Sharkella? Cavarkey? Sharvelley? A frontrunner for a while was the simple Ca + Sh, but the references to both money and the iconic country singer didn’t really match our style. In the end, we took the first three letters from my last name, the middle four letters of his, and then threw in the second to last “e” from mine to create “Shavelle.” It flows, it’s easy to pronounce, and its creation reflects the egalitarian nature of our partnership and parenthood. 

So let me elaborate on why I think you, too, should merge when you marry:

1. This is 21st-century America. No longer is marriage a patriarchal business transaction of property and possessions, from one male head of household to another. Marriage is about the union of equals. Let your last name reflect that.

2. If you’re starting a new family by having or adopting a child, why not create a new family name? In the case of hetero reproduction, just as you’re merging your DNA to create new life, you merge your last names to create a new nuclear family name, one that serves its purpose until an adult offspring flies the coop, gets hitched themselves, and creates their own unique modern moniker. You each get to retain a part of your original selves. And family trees can still be observed and recorded — if it worked when one family name (hers) was discarded in marriage, it can work when both family names are, too.

3. With a little creativity, you can create a name that’s cooler and more pleasing to the ear than either of your original last names. Let’s be honest: some last names are just really unfortunate. I had a friend in elementary school with the last name Windshittle — and she was teased mercilessly. You can take the best of both words and make something better. Or just start from scratch. My step-mother actually suggested, “If you’re bothering changing your last names, why not choose something like ‘Rockefeller’ or ‘Cabot’?” You don’t have to be that image-conscious, but you can choose a name that reflects your values or heritages or tastes. For instance, if my husband and I had been big “Ring of Fire” fans, Cash would have been perfect.

4. Merging is a great option for homosexual couples who don’t have a (ridiculous) tradition to fall back on. Plus, stereotypical gender roles may operate less in their relationships, so an option that ignores gender inequities and embraces equality is preferable.

5. Merging last names avoids the various problems of other alternatives. Hyphenation is untenable long-term, creating longer and longer last names that quickly become ridiculous. Merging allows names to remain simple and easy to pronounce. Keeping your own names results in confusion when you have kids: not only do outsiders not know what to call the various members of your family, but you may inadvertently suggest to your children that they’re more closely connected to one parent over the other. Merging into a single name creates familial cohesion and unity when it matters most, i.e. during the upbringing of kids. If you opt to take one name over the other, the person giving up their name may feel like they’ve sacrificed some of their identity and given more power and authority to the partner with the preferable name. Merging names is egalitarian.

14 Things Only People With Tough Names Understand

For TueNight.com by Siobhan Adcock

1. I grew up with a tough name. Siobhan Adcock. Look at it. There’s almost no part of that name that’s not sort of a pain in the ass.

2. People don’t tend to remember it, and when they do, they can’t pronounce it. Siobhan is an Irish name — it means Jane, or Joan, or Joanne, or if you’re feeling like a sparkly unicorn fairy, “sea foam blowing off the waves.” My father told me (incorrectly, as it turns out) that it means “Queen of the Emerald Isles.” He and my mother had heard of it by way of Siobhan McKenna, the famous Irish stage actress who was in Dr. Zhivago. (But not the famously beautiful actress who was in Dr. Zhivago. And also not the second-most beautiful actress in Dr. Zhivago. The other one.)

3. My father’s name, by the way, was Dick. They don’t really name kids that anymore. Especially with a last name like Adcock. Dick Adcock, Jr. Because his father’s name was also Richard. So when my dad was growing up, there was Big Dick Adcock and Little Dick Adcock. No one, apparently, in the early 1950s, thought that was a problem.

4. When I was a kid there was this, um, spread? Like an oleo type of thing? It was light and silky. Chiffon had probably one of the catchier two-word jingles of the ’70s and early ’80s: “It’s… Chiffon!” Every time I got on the school bus, I had to be announced. By everyone. Often in five-point harmony. “It’s… Sio-ffan!”

5. Since my last name starts with an A, every year on the first day of school, I was inevitably the first name on the roll to be called. The fresh, shiny new roll. Oh, my teachers. I pitied them. Here it was, the beginning of a new school year, the school year they hoped they wouldn’t fuck up or make embarrassing mistakes during (especially not on day one), and you could just see their fresh, young, expectant faces crumple and fall when they realized they weren’t even going to be able to get past the first name on the roll call without asking for help.

I’d usually let them suffer in silence for a second or two, squinting and frowning down at the list of names, and then mutter, “Here. I’m here. It’s me, Siobhan.”

Ultimately, you have to make it easy on people.

6. When I go to a restaurant and leave my name for a table, I tell them I’m Suzanne. Or Sabrina. Or Soybean. All actual pronunciation attempts I have heard.

7. You can imagine what I tell baristas.

8. Long ago, I arrived at a formula for how to respond when I’m asked to spell my name. This is especially essential for forms filled out by baffled clipboard holders:

“S-i-o. (Pause here.) B as in Boy. (Another pause.) h-a-n. Last name: A-d-c (Emphasize the c. Then a long, long pause here, almost long enough to make them think you’re done, before the finale.) o-c-k.”

About 50 percent of the time, I get: “A-d what?”

“C-O-C-K. COCK! COCK!”

“Cock?”

9. And then I went into digital publishing, primarily at women’s websites, and as such, I’ve had a lot of awesome email addresses:

sadcock@women.com

sadcock@ivillage.com

sadcock@theknot.com

All the places a cock could ostensibly be sad, I have worked at.

10. I imagine other people with “cock” in their last names also have this problem, but I’ve discovered that I actually can’t register for a new email address with my real name anymore, because it sets off a spam filter, and I’m asked to “choose another name.” (You choose another name, Yahoo!)

11. My sister, Gillian Adcock, has, for many years, been a teacher at a local high school. When she was single, she kept her last name a secret at work — she had to. For all these lovable teenagers, she was only ever “Miss A” for years, until she got married and then became Mrs. Fletcher. I mean, can you imagine what a roomful of teenagers would do with something like “Miss Adcock”?

12. When I got married, I had the opportunity, at last, to change my last name. I went to the marriage license place in downtown Brooklyn with my soon-to-be husband, whose last name is innocuous and contains no filthy words. I probably could have changed my first name too while I was at it — nobody in that office seems like they’re paying a whole lot of attention. But I didn’t. Looking down at the form, I understood that I didn’t want to. My father died when I was in college, and we’re not in great touch with what’s left of his side of the family, and I didn’t want the Adcocks, our Adcocks, the Adcocks with the balls, to name their children ridiculous things like “Dick” — twice — and then, later, “Siobhan,” to perish from this Earth. I kept my name.

I am also lazy and didn’t want to deal with a lot of paperwork.

Adcock it is, then. Forever.

13. I always thought that when I finally had a kid I’d name her Jane, or Kate, or Mary. But I didn’t. We gave out daughter a name that combined our grandmothers’ names. It’s phonetic, at least, but it’s not super-recognizable or common. You don’t actually want a common name, I’ve found. After 40-plus years as Siobhan Adcock (God, when you say it out loud, there’s even the suggestion of “nads” in there — it really might be the second filthiest name ever, after Big Dick Adcock), I now know that an uncommon name gives you something to live up to, and that’s both a challenge and a stroke of luck. So we gave her a name that people will ask her annoying questions about all her life.

14. When I was in college, I worked at the library. And one day, this guy came in. And he checked out some books. And when he left, I kept the screen open on his record and just stared at it for a while, feeling like some previously unknown, oddly comforting corner of the universe had arrived before me, and called out its name:

Anil Dikshit.

The Top 100 Baby Names Of 2014, According To Nameberry

According to Nameberry, the most popular baby names for 2014 are Imogen for girls and Asher for boys. Nameberry’s Top 100 list is based on the number of views each name attracted on the website, out of a total of nearly 50 million views in 2014.

But the biggest news is the huge influence of television and celebrities on names zooming up Nameberry’s popularity list. The “Game of Thrones”-inspired girls’ name Khaleesi ranks at Number 2, with Daenerys also in the Nameberry Top 100.

On the boys’ side, new names entering the Top 10 are Silas, popularized by “Weeds,” along with Jasper, Milo and Ezra. The biggest leaps were the Jolie-Pitt-influenced Knox, up 60 places, followed by Archer and Ryker.

The three names climbing furthest up the Nameberry Top 100 for girls are Ellie, Cordelia and Maya; others include Adeline, plus four stylish L-names: Lucy, Lila, Louisa and Luna.

Names that made the biggest slides are emblematic of pop culture shifts. For girls, names losing popularity include Katniss from “The Hunger Games” along with popular celebrity baby choices Harper, Seraphina, and Everly. For boys, Flynn, of “Breaking Bad,” dropped 67 places, followed by Christian of 50 Shades of Grey and Arlo of “Justified.” Even George, as in 2013’s little prince, lost 36 spots.

These Women Kept Their Maiden Names And This Was The Reaction

Following the marriage proposal, brides-to-be are inevitably asked this polarizing question: Are you changing your name?

For some, the answer is an easy “yes.” For those who are on the fence however — or those who simply want to keep the name they were born with for personal or professional reasons — it’s a bit more complicated.

A Reddit thread emerged recently asking women who kept their maiden names to elaborate on their experiences. This is what they had to say:

1. You might be called a “feminist bitch.”
“My husband took my last name. His father was totally okay with it … His mom, however, pitched a fit and almost didn’t come to our wedding. She called me a ‘feminist bitch,’ even though it was her son’s idea and had nothing to do with gender issues and was really angry about it … after six years of marriage, she sends letters and cards only to his first name, and won’t write our last name for him.”

2. Some people might freak out…
“People are generally okay with me keeping my name, but when we would tell people we were considering him changing his they freaked out. I had several men tell me I was taking away his dignity and making him my woman. It’s ridiculous how tiny, stupid traditions can really pinpoint the sexist nature of our society.”

3. But others will surprise you.
“Strangely, even in my small town that is very traditional and not the most open-minded, people were generally understanding.”

5. Owning your decision is the best course of action.
“I’m Hispanic and have 5 names, so IDGAF about more names, but quite enjoy mine and want one name throughout academia, so people kind of let it be. Some thought it was weird, others didn’t care, but at the end of the day, it’s my name and it’s staying that way.”

6. Some things, like traveling, become more difficult.
“Not having the same name is a bit difficult when traveling sometimes. We have bought plane tickets together, selected our seats next to each other, and then arrive at the airport to see that one of us was moved … Crossing borders and coming back into the country gets double-takes … there’s almost always a question or a statement of ‘oh, you have different last names.’ I’ve pondered making a shrunk-down copy of our marriage license and laminating it for situations like that.”

7. And your parents may get confused.
My parents never quite figured out what to call me. They would address cards to us as his full name & my first name, like Mickey Mouse & Minnie. This is despite the fact that my name never changed, and they could just address the letter to the name they gave me at birth.”

7. Not everyone will agree with your choice…
“Online is the worst. I once got ranted against for hating traditional men (I don’t). People in real life actually told me I was a bad mom for not having one family name. That hurt a lot.”

8. But don’t feel pressured to change your mind.
“A lot of people told me something along the lines of, ‘But you have to!’ I asked why every time. Every time they said, ‘That’s just how it’s done.’ I told everyone that wasn’t a good enough reason for me.”

9. If your partner loves you, he’ll be happy with your decision.
“I told my boyfriend that if we ever got married I would not change my name. His response: ‘Ok, doesn’t matter to me, I don’t want to change my name either’. That was that.”

10. Some family members won’t know how to react.
“I’m not sure our families have quite figured out how to address cards to us, but other than that there’s been no response or comments on it.”

11. Politely correcting people will become second nature.
“Sometimes people make the mistake of assuming we have the same last name, but we either just let them assume what they want or politely correct them and so far nobody has freaked out or anything.”

12. Just ignore the ridiculous questions you may be asked.
“My husband didn’t really care one way or the other. I actually appreciated his indifference. He rightly saw that my name was mine and what I did with it was my decision. Our family, on the other hand, had some issues … Some of his relatives actually asked if it was legal for me to keep my maiden name.”

13. It may be awkward at times…
“General response… is ‘oh,’ a cough, and then a bit of awkward silence. So I go back to whatever I was doing and it passes.”

14. But some people will really respect you for it.
“I kept my last name and most females my age that I talked to about it were surprised. It was almost always immediately followed by, ‘That’s so awesome–I changed my name, and I like it, but I think it’s really cool that you kept yours.’ I never got a snooty response.”

7000 Baby Names

7000 Baby Names


A name is for life! It may be sad, but it is certainly true that you don’t meet too many high-flying, successful guys called Wayne or Elvis. What you hope for your baby to become, is as much a consideration as the names you like. The decisions you make will create an image or style that your baby will have to grow up with – and grow into. You owe it to this experience to consider a wide choice of names. You should browse and extract names from this book. The issues are many. From trendy to traditional, and from the popular to the sophisticated. You have to strike the balance that you feel is right for your baby. I have been studying names for many years and I have come to believe that names choose themselves – if you will allow. Mum knows her infant well, through the subliminal relationship she has built carrying her child. Intuitively she will understand whether her baby is a Nigel or a Tom, a Claire or a Holly. This book introduces you to the many ways to name your baby with style and suitability. Meaningful names, musical names, mystical names…Enjoy the sounds and meanings of these richly varied names. Note their exotic backgrounds and consider the numerous variations we provide on so many of them.

Biblical Baby Names for Today: The Inspiration you need to make the perfect choice for you baby!

Biblical Baby Names for Today: The Inspiration you need to make the perfect choice for you baby!


Having a girl? Consider Abigail. This Hebrew names means “My father is joy or cause of joy” and is first found in 1 Samuel 25:2-3, 39. After her husband Nabal died, the widow Abigail became King David’s wife. Having a boy? What about Benjamin? Meaning “Son of my right hand and fortunate,” this is another Hebrew name. Benjamin is also the name of the child that Rachel bore Jacob before dying; he later became leader of one of the twelve tribes of Israel. You can find a mention of Benjamin in Genesis 35:18. Not sure yet? Think about a name that works for boys or girls, such as Jordan. This Hebrew name means “to flow or to descend”-as in the eponymous river-and is found throughout the Bible. In Biblical Baby Names for Today, you’ll find hundreds of biblical boys’ and girls’ names just like these, as well as their origins, true meanings, and citations within the New and Old Testaments. Complete with Bible stories that illustrate the most popular characters and their namesakes, this comprehensive guide makes finding the perfect name for your baby fun and easy.
