Preppiest Names


Got a bun in the oven and trying to chose a name for them that will ensure that they are taken seriously? You'll need to have a look at this list of the poshest and preppiest names.


The first thing to do is to consider your ancestors and current relatives and choose a name that has some family significance. Where your family history includes the names of several great families and you do not have a double barrelled surname then it is very preppy to name your child with a surname from your illustrious heritage (i.e. Mackenzie Campbell - where the father's family name is Campbell but a grandmother's maiden name was Mackenzie). This works particularly well where the family name in question is of Scottish, Irish, English, Welsh, Manx, German, French Huguenot, Norman or Dutch origin.






Alternatively, cast your eyes over this list and you won't go wrong.
