Baby names from NPR

User Rating: / 1

NPR, once known as National Public Radio, began in the early 1970s. Today it syndicates over 900 public radio programs — its own and those of rival providers — keeping us entertained and informed on long commutes or trips to the gym. With so many programs now available as podcasts — are you listening to Serial? Do you think he did it? — you might find yourself tuning in during the wee hours caring for your newborn.

NPR and its rivals and affiliates might seem unlikely places to find a baby name, but these are some hard-working, knowledgeable men and women. The very best kinds of nerds — and excellent baby name inspiration.
