What about this name....


I was visiting my sister's classroom today and there was a boy named Newell. I have never heard it before and wonder how popular it is.

Do you like it or not and why?

  • I guess it reminds me more of a last name. Probably because I am related to some Newell's. I can't say I am particularly fond of it but in the end it is your little one who cares what I think.

  • Not my favorite, but, it's your kid, not mine. Name your baby whatever you want.
