Street Name for Baby Name

Hi Jennifer,

I was wondering what you thought of the name Adderley for a girl, nicknamed Addy. It’s the name of a street in my hometown.

Thanks!

Molly

Dear Molly,

I like it, and the fact that you associate it with a good memory.  I often advise people to look into their own personal histories for unique baby names. Street names, towns you visited or with which you have a particularly positive association are good sources for names. Congrats!

Sincerely,
Jennifer
