潮不潮?英国父母现在给宝宝取名都用宜家家具名
Parents-to-be are looking to Ikea's best-selling furniture range for inspiration on what to call their newborns

来源:中国日报    2018-04-11 13:17



        The year has already seen baby-name trends galore, with gender-neutral monikers reigning supreme.        今年给宝宝取名的各种趋势花样纷呈,中性名字大行其道。
        And Baby Centre has now earmarked names inspired by Ikea as a potential new trend to sweep the nation.        “宝宝中心”日前发布了受宜家家居启发而取的宝宝名,据称这将成为在英国流行的新趋势。
        The furniture manufacturer often chooses traditional Scandinavian names for its products with the Billy bookcase, Malm bed and Tarva wooden range among its most popular lines.        宜家公司常选择传统斯堪的纳维亚名字给产品命名,最受欢迎的产品有比利书架、马尔姆床和塔尔瓦实木家具系列等等。
        Writer Lucy BC suggests: 'Naming your baby after IKEA furniture might seem ridiculous at first glance, but don’t dismiss the idea!        作者露西-BC建议说:“给孩子取宜家家具名第一眼看似有点滑稽,不过不要拒绝这个想法。”
        'IKEA is known for the charming Scandinavian names it gives its products and many work surprisingly well as baby names.'        “我们都知道,宜家用美丽的斯堪的纳维亚名字为产品命名,其中很多也非常适合做宝宝名。”
        She goes on to suggest Malm, a name which has been used by Ikea for it's 'simple, streamlined design' bedroom range.        她继续向大家推荐Malm(马尔姆)这个名字,马尔姆是宜家的一个卧室系列,“具有简单、流线型的设计”。
        She also suggests Ingo, which is the male version to Inga or Inge, as well as Tarva, which also references their untreated solid wood range.        她还向大家推荐了Ingo(英格),对应的女性名字是Inga或者Inge,还有Tarva(塔尔瓦),都是未经处理的实木系列。
        However, not all names are completely unusual, with Cilla, Franklin, Tobias and Stefan among the names already more common in the UK.        但并非所有的名字都非比寻常。其中Cilla(奇拉)、Franklin(富兰克林)、Tobias(托拜厄斯)和Stefan(斯特凡)在英国已经很常见。
        While these stand in stark contrast to the more classic baby name trend predicted for 2018, they do fall in line with the trend of girl's names ending in A.        之前有预测说,今年宝宝取名将更加传统,尽管这一趋势与之大相径庭,但确实与女宝宝名多以“a”字母结尾这一趋势一致。
        In December, Mother and Baby magazine predicted gender neutral names would be huge, as well as predicting that names ending in 'a' such as Amelia and Ella would be popular for little girls.        去年12月,《妈妈和宝宝》杂志预测说中性名字将大为流行,以“a”结尾的女宝宝名字也将很受欢迎,比如Amelia和Ella。
        And the year's trend of Royal-inspired names looks set to continue, with Meghan and Harry top contenders ahead of the royal wedding next month.        今年受英国王室启发而给宝宝取名的趋势仍将继续,在下月梅根和哈里即将大婚之际,他俩的名字也在家长给宝宝取名时最受欢迎。
