Bristol – Scary Mommy

Bristol

An English place name (Bristol is a big urban area in southwestern England), it wasn’t popularized as a girl’s name until Bristol Palin, daughter of former Alaskan Senator/Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, came into the pop culture spotlight. But don’t worry about the name association: Next to your little Bristol, she’ll be “Palin” in comparison. Har har!

Famous people named Bristol:

Bris is a possibility, but it’s also the name for the Jewish circumcision ceremony, soooo …

Fun fact:

If little Bristol grows up to have an interest in salmon fishing (BECAUSE WHO DOESN’T), you may want to take her to Bristol Bay, Alaska.
