Baby names inspired by New Girl

User Rating: / 0

While we would recommend against taking too many life cues from Fox's New Girl — Sky Knife, anyone? — the names are pretty adorable. Check out our list of quirky names for boys and girls inspired by New Girl characters.

Unlike many shows on television, the writers for New Girl paid attention to what names were popular within the characters' generations. Writers love to use character names that sound fresh and modern, turning to the trendy baby names of today rather than what a pool of early 30-somethings should be named. We tip our hats to their accuracy.
