D’Krunk /dəkrə́ŋk/ (female)

Please reload

The last sixteen years have been something of a slow burn for names that feature an apostrophe. With the recent appearance of D’Krunk on the naming scene, however, it looks like the next decade or so will be a veritable apostrophic inferno. Where names like P’Dump and T’Perch have used the apostrophe with disappointing results, D’Krunk combines economy and elegance to produce a uniquely punchy bou...

A timeless staple of affluent Middle America ever since it arrived in the mid-1960s, Duggluns is a name that simply screams wealth and class. This solid rock of a name was first coined when Spencer Cabot III, breaking three generations of tradition, attempted to name his firstborn son Douglas. It has long been debated whether it was Cabot who misspoke, or the clerk at the Arlington County Naming O...

One of the first things they teach you in baby-naming school is just how much more exotic a name can become if it is made to sound slightly French. Perhaps this lesson comes too early in the curriculum, however, because too often this technique (playfully known as ‘Frenchification’) is used clumsily or to excess. Dictatoire, a name that debuted in 2008, is a shining example of a well-executed and...

Without a doubt, this 2013 name owes its existence to Mowgli, the main character in Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book. A softer, more buttery version of that exotic classic, Doughbly is a friendly and rotund name that is extremely pleasing to the ear. While some have complained that the softness of the name has a tendency to infect the child’s physique, only those with an archaic view of body imag...

Whoever said there were no more one-syllable names left to be found will have to eat their hat when they hear this 2015 original for the first time. With a percussive nasality that seems to linger in the air long after it’s uttered, Djink makes quite an impression. Already catchy enough when spoken aloud, the twin dots that garnish the middle of this name when it is typed out provide an additional...

The grim eloquence of Dante plus the wry femininity of Tiffany equals a name the experts claim is poised to make itself heard in a big way this year. Incredibly accessible despite its novelty, Dantiphy is as easy on the tongue as it is on the ears. This is the type of name that makes you want to meet its owner, and any little girl lucky enough to receive it will surely find herself turning heads b...

Where similar names have been poisoned by countless crops of mediocre children, Derryt still remains relatively untainted by failure.  While the name has been around since the mid 80s, it is only now beginning to truly shine. In fact, according to Fresh Baby Quarterly, over 80% of this name’s applications have occurred since 2010. With intelligence and melancholy positively bursting at its se...

As far as we can tell, this mysterious little two-syllable firecracker is an attempt to overcome the slightly fey flavour generally associated with names like Embry and Aubrey with the raw, solid masculinity of drums. With its head in the clouds but its feet planted firmly on the ground, it’s no surprise that Drumbry is expected to crack Baby Names Monthly’s top 100 list next month.

“Good luck gett...
