Is it teething time for your little one?

 

Encourage your little one to get creative by naming them after one of these very famous painters.

 

While some of them are a little out there, like Caravaggio or Artemisia, they have played such a huge role in shaping our modern artists and gave us incredible works of art that it's totally worth having to spell out your child's name from now until forever...
