Expectant moms and dads - and grandmothers and aunts and cousins and just about everyone in the family - often search far and wide for baby names. (Unless your thing is sticking to family names, and that's cool in its own right.) There are blogs, books, magazines (Hello, Matilda Magazine!), and message boards. You name it - the sources are endless. One of the oldest sources is the Bible. And while using Biblical names is nothing new, there are some really hip ones that seem to get overlooked generation after generation.
