Stikins ® Name Labels: Fly Away Home With Our List Of Names Inspired By Feathered Friends

Today is the 385th anniversary of the birth of Sir Christopher Wren, who is best known as the architect who rebuilt 52 churches after the Great Fire of London (including St Paul’s Cathedral), although he was also an anatomist, astronomer, mathematician, and physicist.

To celebrate this anniversary, we thought we’d gather up a flock of names inspired by our feathered friends.

Among Stikins ® customers, the top five most popular bird-inspired names are:

With an honourable mention to the mythical Phoenix!

You could also try these wonderful names with distinctly avian-based inspirations:

Female names tend to be inspired by songbirds, while male names tend to be inspired by birds of prey – however, by far and away the most popular inspiration is the RAVEN, which inspired over a quarter of the names that we found during our search.

With half term either underway, about to start, or even about to finish (depending on where you live), now is the perfect time to take stock and order some extra name labels to make sure that EVERYTHING really is safely and securely labelled. Whether you ran out of labels at the start of term, you’ve found yourself presented with yet another list of vital equipment for the next term (or trip or holiday or camp etc), or you’ve got a few items that somehow escaped the grand labelling session at the end of the school holidays (including all those now-essential winter warmers) you can place a quick top up order and rest assured that your children’s belongings are safe and sound.

Stikins ® are a multipurpose solution to quickly and easily labelling your children’s belongings safely and securely – there’s no sewing and no ironing involved AND we despatch all orders on the same working day (up to 3pm) by Royal Mail’s first class as standard. If you need your labels even faster, you can also give us a call to upgrade to a guaranteed next day delivery.

Our name labels simply peel off their backing sheet and stick onto all kinds of items; they can be applied onto the wash-care label of clothing and fabric items or directly onto personal items (including lunch boxes and water bottles, books and stationery, mobiles and tablets, P.E. kits and equipment, and bags and shoes).

You can order our Stikins ® Name Label Kit to receive 60 blank labels and a pen (so you can personalise each label however you like) or you can order one of our personalised packs; we have four pack sizes available (with 30, 60, 90, or 120 labels per pack), which are personalised with your requested text in a bold black font to ensure that your labels are really easy to read.
