    • Cool Names for Babies
    • Five years ago, America's leading baby-name experts, Pamela Redmond Satran and Linda Rosenkrantz, wrote a hip little book to answer the question they were asked most frequently: "What are the cool names?" Cool marches on, so it's time for a fresh new look at the latest trends, including: • Little Caesars: Led by celebrities (from Daniel Baldwin's Atticus to Julia Roberts's Phinnaeus), Latinate boys' names are hot, hot, hot • Scarlet Ladies: Sexy siren names, from Lola and Scarlett to biblical bad girls Salome and Delilah • Hollywood Squared: Golden Age silver-screen glamour is in, from Ava to Gable, as in Clark • Thunderbolts: Brisk and bold one-syllable boys' names like Colt, Cade, Trent, and Stone.
