Pottery Barn Kids Kids Names, Fall 2007 Edition

So my wife tells me that while I was gone, she and the kid sat down to read the Pottery Barn Kids catalogue together. Now the kid wants bump beds. [ducduc, Argington, and Nurseryworks, we'll be in touch in 2010 or so.]

With a PBK book on the table, and me still on my branding and marketing conference high, it seems like a good time to revisit all the kid names that the Oh-So Tasteful Giant uses in both its products and in the monogrammed goods that appear in the photos.

The last time we did this was in Summer 2005, and frankly, I expected more overlap between the two batches. Product names tend to reappear, which doesn't surprise me, but in 2007, PBK is using more product names as monograms. The carryovers are marked with a little *.

If your kid's name was in 2005, but fell out of fashion by 2007, or if if your kid's name didn't make the list, don't feel bad. I'm sure whatever unaspirational demographic segment you're stuck in is great for you. Suffice it to say there's no Malik desk or Chabliss dust ruffle, though, and Angel y Maria definitely no esta aqui.

I suppose I shouldn't feel as much relief as I do right at this moment, as I see my kid's name is just as Barn-worthy in 2007 as it was in 2005. I guess we did something right for her, after all. Hope she doesn't mind that $1300 of her college education went to a lovely PBK rocking chair.

[she'll be a thought leader for sure! -ed.]

Yeah, my daughter loved the PBK catalog, and loves the bunk beds (personally, I'm in love with the boat bed -- for myself).

Fortunately, neither my daughter's name, nor my new son's name made the cut again...

so really, you're taking inspiration from this. you're going to name kid 2.0 "balls," right?

My kids names are never listed in anything, from keychains to Pottery Barn. I guess that makes them unique, right?

You don't have Larkin or Lewis on your list-this would be in beds (so either girls or boys products, and girl's or boy's names as well)

[they're both on the girls products list. kendall was another one where I decided to just put it on one list, though it appeared muliple times. I went by the presence of white paint or pink at the first citation, btw. -ed.]

My son's name, Oliver, was a short-lived line of bedding. Glad to see it off the list, and very glad my daughter's name, Eleanor, has yet to appear!
