4. Emerson
Naming your adorable son after a great poet and transcendental thinker? We say yes. A champion of freedom and individualism, one of our favorite Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes is this: "To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment."

With a name like Emerson, your son won't find that hard –– and we're sure that he'll carry himself with grace and dignity.
