We’ve whittled down the thousands of possibilities to find the 100 baby names that we believe are most emblematic of our times ― while also being both somewhat timeless and forward-facing.

FYI, You Should Actually Be Putting Perfume In Your Belly Button
Huffington Post - 4 months
If you love to spritz on a signature scent, we have bad news for you: you’ve been doing it wrong. You probably know to put perfume on your neck and wrists. That’s because these spots are known as “pulse points,” or areas where you can feel a heartbeat on your body. Body heat emanating from pulse points can intensify a fragrance. But there are several other points on your body that you’re probably missing. First up? Your belly button. Experts say your belly button is a prime location for fragrance. Its shape serves as a natural repository for scent, and your body heat will allow the scent to radiate. Celebs like Liv Tyler and Adriana Lima swear by this trick.  “I put little drops on my fingers and put some under my arms and in my belly button,” Tyler told Into The Gloss. “My dad taught me that—if you put it where you heat up, the smell stays with you.” You can also apply perfume inside your elbows and behind your knees for a longer-lasting scent. Since your knees and elb ...

10 Shows That Didn't Get Emmys Love, But Should Get Yours
Huffington Post - 6 months
There are many, many good television shows out there these days, and hardly enough time — or awards — to give them all their due. Plus, not everyone is going to agree on which of our current small-screen offerings are truly the best. While one person stumps for Rachel Bloom’s nuanced and hilarious delivery on “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” another one could justifiably argue that Andrew Lincoln’s performance on “The Walking Dead” is truly where it’s at.  While Sunday night’s focus will be on the Emmy-nominated shows, actors, writers and co. at this year’s award ceremony, don’t forget to check out the worthy shows that fell short of nabbing a nod for 2016. Ladies and gentlemen, 10 shows for your Roku queue consideration. “Halt and Catch Fire” (AMC) What might sound a little hokey ― a show about Texas’ Silicon Prairie and the rise of personal computers in the 1980s ― ends up being deeply emotional and perfectly nerdy.

    Age 30
    In 2008, she starred in the home invasion horror film The Strangers with Scott Speedman, a film about a young couple who are terrorized one night by three masked assailants in their remote country house.
    More Details Hide Details Although the film garnered a mixed reception among critics, it was a major box office success, earning over $80 million over its considerably smaller $9 million budget. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, she noted that The Strangers was the most challenging role of her career. "It was as far as I could push myself in every way: physically, emotionally, mentally." She appeared in The Incredible Hulk (2008), in which she played Dr. Betty Ross, the love interest of the title character, played by Edward Norton. Tyler was attracted to the love story in the script, and was a fan of the television show. She said filming the part was "very physical, which was fun", and compared her performance to "a deer caught in the headlights". The Incredible Hulk was a box office success, earning over $262 million worldwide. The Washington Post, in review of the film, wrote: "Tyler gives Betty an appropriately angelic nimbus of ethereal gentleness as the one Beauty who can tame the Beast... during their most pivotal encounters."
  • TWENTIES
  • 2005
    Age 27
    In 2005, she appeared in Steve Buscemi's independent drama Lonesome Jim, where she was cast alongside Casey Affleck, as a single mother and nurse who reconnects with an old fling who has returned to their small town in Indiana after a failed run as a novelist in New York.

  • 2003
    Age 25
    In 2003, Tyler featured in the third and last installment of the series, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.
    More Details Hide Details Following the success of The Lord of the Rings, she appeared opposite her Armageddon co-star Ben Affleck in writer-director Kevin Smith's romantic comedy Jersey Girl (2004), playing a woman who meets a widowed father played by Affleck, re-opening his heart to love. In an interview with MTV News, Tyler confessed that she felt "scared and vulnerable" while filming Jersey Girl, adding "I was so used to those other elements of the character Arwen. On The Lord of the Rings, a lot of things were done in post-production, whereas this was really just about me and Ben sitting there, just shooting off dialogue." However, she reiterated that doing Jersey Girl was what she wanted to do.
  • 2001
    Age 23
    She and Langdon became engaged in February 2001, and married in Barbados on March 25, 2003.
    More Details Hide Details
    In 2001, she starred in the feature film The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, directed by Peter Jackson.
    More Details Hide Details She played the Elf maiden Arwen Undómiel. The film is based on the first volume of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. The filmmakers approached Tyler after seeing her performance in Plunkett & Macleane. She learned to speak the fictitious Elvish language that was created by Tolkien. Mick LaSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle noted that Tyler's performance was "lovely and earnest". A year later, Tyler again starred as Arwen in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, the second installment of the series. The film received favorable reviews. She spent months learning sword fighting to be used during the concluding battle scenes in The Two Towers, but her scenes were removed after the script was changed. The film was an enormous box office success, earning over $926 million worldwide, out-grossing its predecessor, which earned over $871 million.
    In 2001, Tyler played the object of infatuation for three men (Matt Dillon, John Goodman, and Paul Reiser) in the comedy One Night at McCool's.
    More Details Hide Details In discussion of the role, she said it was "definitely the first part where I had to be so physically aware and have people so aware of me physically. Maybe it's not hard for anybody else, but it is a bit for me. I mean I love my body and I feel very comfortable in my skin but this was tough." Peter Travers of Rolling Stone wrote: "Tyler, a true beauty, gives the role a valiant try, but her range is too limited to play this amalgam of female perfection."
    In a 2001 interview with The Guardian, she said that she initially turned down the role in Armageddon; "I really didn't want to do it at first and I turned it down a couple of times, but the biggest reason I changed my mind was because I was scared of it.
    More Details Hide Details I wanted to try it for that very reason. I mean, I'm not really in this to do amazing things in my career – I just want it to be special when I make a movie." She was then cast in the drama Onegin (1999), a film based on the 19th century Russian novel of the same name by Alexander Pushkin, in which she portrayed Tatyana Larina and co-starred with Ralph Fiennes. Tyler was required to master an English accent, though Stephen Holden of The New York Times felt that her approximation of an English accent was "inert". The film was critically and financially unsuccessful. That same year, she appeared in the historical comedy film Plunkett & Macleane. She later appeared in two films directed by Robert Altman, Cookie's Fortune (1999) and Dr. T & the Women (2000). In Cookie's Fortune, she was part of an ensemble cast that included Glenn Close, Julianne Moore, Chris O'Donnell, and Patricia Neal. Her performance well received among critics; Salon.com wrote: "This is the first time in which Tyler's acting is a match for her beauty (she's always been a bit forlorn). Altman helps her find some snap, but a relaxed, silly snap, as in the cartoon sound she makes when she takes a midday swig of bourbon. The lazy geniality of the movie is summed up by the way Emma character saunters off to take a swim with her cowboy hat and pint of Wild Turkey."
  • 1998
    Age 20
    In 1998, Tyler began dating British musician Royston Langdon of the band Spacehog.
    More Details Hide Details
  • TEENAGE
  • 1997
    Age 19
    The following year, she appeared in Inventing the Abbotts in 1997, in which she played the daughter of Will Patton and Barbara Williams' characters.
    More Details Hide Details The movie is based on a short story by Sue Miller. Entertainment Weekly declared Tyler's performance as "lovely and pliant". That same year, Tyler was chosen by People magazine as one of the 50 Most Beautiful People. Tyler next appeared in Armageddon (1998), where she played the daughter of Bruce Willis' character and love interest of Ben Affleck's character. The film generated mixed reviews, but was a box office success earning $553 million worldwide. The movie included the songs "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" and "What Kind of Love Are You On" by Aerosmith.
  • 1996
    Age 18
    Soon after, she landed a supporting role in James Mangold's 1996 drama Heavy as Callie, a naive young waitress.
    More Details Hide Details The film received favorable reviews; critic Janet Maslin noted: "Ms. Tyler... gives a charmingly ingenuous performance, betraying no self-consciousness about her lush good looks." Tyler had her breakthrough role in the art house film Stealing Beauty (1996), in which she played Lucy Harmon, an innocent, romantic teenager who travels to Tuscany, Italy, intent on losing her virginity. The film received generally mixed reviews, but Tyler's performance was regarded favorably by the critics. Variety wrote: "Tyler is the perfect accomplice. At times sweetly awkward, at others composed and serene, the actress appears to respond effortlessly and intuitively to the camera, creating a rich sense of what Lucy is about that often is not explicit in the dialogue." Empire noted, "Liv Tyler (here radiantly resembling a ganglier young Ava Gardner) with a rare opportunity to enamour, a break she capitalizes on with composure." The film was directed by Bernardo Bertolucci, who chose Tyler for the role after meeting with a number of young girls in Los Angeles, including Tyler's music video co-star Alicia Silverstone. Bertolucci said "there was something missing in all of them". He later said that what he saw in Tyler was a gravitas he described as "a New York aura". During promotion of the film, Tyler said she wanted to separate herself from the character during production: "I tried my damnedest not to think of my own situation.
  • 1995
    Age 17
    In 1995, she starred in the comedy drama Empire Records.
    More Details Hide Details Tyler has described Empire Records as "one of the best experiences" she has ever had.
  • 1994

    Tyler made her feature film debut in Silent Fall in 1994, where she played the elder sister of a boy with autism.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1993
    Age 15
    Tyler first became known to television audiences when she starred alongside Alicia Silverstone in the music video for Aerosmith's 1993 song "Crazy".
    More Details Hide Details
    They also have worked together professionally, once when she appeared in Aerosmith's music video for "Crazy" in 1993, and again when Aerosmith performed many of the songs in the film Armageddon (1998) in which Tyler starred.
    More Details Hide Details According to Tyler "... Todd Rundgren basically decided when I was born that I needed a father so he signed my birth certificate. He knew that there was a chance that I might not be his but." He paid to put her through private school, and she visited him several times a year. Tyler maintains a close relationship with Rundgren. "I’m so grateful to him, I have so much love for him. You know, when he holds me it feels like Daddy. And he’s very protective and strong." Tyler attended the Congressional Schools of Virginia, Breakwater School, and Waynflete School in Portland, Maine, before returning to New York City with her mother at age 12. She went to York Preparatory in New York City for junior high and high school after her mother researched the school to accommodate Tyler's ADHD. She graduated in 1995 and left to continue her acting career. When asked about the way she spent her youth, Tyler said: "For me, I didn’t get much of a childhood in my teen years because I’ve been working since I was 14. But that also kept me out of trouble. When everybody was doing acid and partying like crazy, I was at work on a movie in Tuscany... having my own fun, of course, but it was a different kind of thing. I have no regrets. I love the way my life has gone."
  • 1991
    Age 13
    The truth about Tyler's paternity did not become public until six years later in 1991, when she changed her name from Rundgren to Tyler, but kept the former as a middle name.
    More Details Hide Details Buell's stated reason for the initial decision was that Steven was too heavily addicted to drugs at the time of her birth. Since learning the truth about her paternity, Liv and Steven have developed a close relationship.
  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1977
    Born
    On July 1, 1977, Buell gave birth, naming the daughter Liv Rundgren and claiming that Todd Rundgren was the biological father.
    More Details Hide Details Rundgren and Buell ended their romantic relationship but Rundgren put his heart and soul into the "white lie". At age eight Liv met Steven Tyler and noticed a resemblance she shared with his other daughter, Mia. When she asked her mother about the similarity, the secret was revealed.
    Her mother named her after Norwegian actress Liv Ullmann, after seeing Ullmann on the cover of the March 5, 1977 issue of TV Guide.
    More Details Hide Details She is of Italian, German, Polish, and English ancestry on her father's side and German ancestry on her mother's side. Tyler has three half-siblings: Mia Tyler (born 1978), Chelsea Anna Tallarico (born 1989), and Taj Monroe Tallarico (born 1991). Her maternal grandmother, Dorothea Johnson, founded the Protocol School of Washington. From 1972 to 1979, Liv’s mother Bebe Buell lived with rock musician Todd Rundgren. In 1976, Buell became unexpectedly pregnant from a brief relationship with Steven Tyler.
