Looking for a good baby name? You could take the modern approach and deliberately misspell a common name. Or you could you could go old school and look for advice from Seventeenth Century Puritans. Joseph Norwood of Slate compiled some of the best baby names from that culture:
1. Humiliation. Humiliation Hynde had two sons in the 1620s; he called them both Humiliation Hynde.
3. No-merit. NoMerit Vynall was born in Warbleton in Sussex, a fount of beautiful names.
11. Sorry-for-sin. Sorry-for-sin Coupard was another resident of Warbleton.
