It's a raw day here in the Big Apple, made all the more bitter by the malignancy of the news cycle. On days like these the Baby Name Critic thinks, how can we focus on baby names at a time like this? But the babies keep being born, and the parents keep naming them. So we soldier on.
Zephyr, from the Greek Zephyrus, means "summer breeze." Emerson could mean many things: an homage to Ralph Waldo (spare me), the performing arts college, or the electronics brand, et al. Any way you want to spin it, it's a McMansion name. It proves that underneath the GoT cosplay, Parker and bride are nothing more than new money garbage people.
For those who have skipped to this paragraph: Full translation of this baby's name: Summer Breeze New Money Garbage.
Zephyr joins big sister Winter Victoria, whose name translates to "my parents live in a fantasy."
