*COOL COOL--Famous names: movie characters, artists, athletes, musicians, and writers, even nanny diary names
*NEW COOL--Spiritual names like Pax or Eden; color names (Indigo, Lavender); music names (Jazz, Cadence, Madrigal); foreign word names (Luna, from the Spanish for moon; or Vero, Italian for truth).
