Today, Rock and Roll Baby Names got a shout out from The New York Daily News:
From here we ventured further afield, to “Rock and Roll Baby Names: Over 2,000 Music-Inspired Names, from Alison to Ziggy” by Margaret Eby, in hopes of finding a hip name not yet claimed by half of Park Slope. Entries include “Fela,” which Eby explains belonged to “Afrobeat trailblazer Fela Kuti, born Olufela Olusegun Oludotun Ransome-Kuti, married twenty-seven women at once…he later adopted a rotation system, keeping only twelve wives simultaneously.” (Image: Center Street)
