About
Nature names are big with parents, so its completely in keeping with this preference that River scores well in terms of chart favorites. A name like Riveror Sky, Rainbow or Leafwas once seen as odd or hippieish, but today its as acceptable as any traditional name. It comes from a Latin word, ripa, which translates to riverbank. Though more than twice as popular as a boys' name (Keri Russell of "The Americans" has a son, born in 2007, named River) its growing as a girls' name too.
