Penelope, Athena, and Phoebe - what do these popular feminine names have in common? They’re all associated with Greek mythology, a fantastic source for name inspiration today. Strong but still graceful, tenacious yet feminine, these names of the goddesses, queens, and nymphs of ancient Greece balance the best of both worlds. Let’s take a look at a few divine choices that haven’t yet become popular. Image: Wikimedia Commons Artemis. Confident and cool, Artemis has a modern sound despite its...

I'm newly pregnant, but choosing DD's name took almost the whole 9 months, so I'm starting to think about it already! If it's a girl, it will probably be Willow Robin. But if it's a boy?? My husband's choice is Ronan. I like it, but it just seems like such a serious, formal name for a baby or a child. Miles is probaby my top pick right now, and Calvin is a gp name that husband may veto. MN would be Oliver after my grandpa. Last name is one syllable, starts with H.Thoughts about any of these...

Just found out baby #3 is a boy! Our first boy is Tyler James-middle name after FIL, second is Max Steven-middle after my dad. My husband and I tend to veto each other's names, so naming our third boy might be tricky. We do tend to not like nicknamey names and like to name the baby what we plan to call him. Last name rhymes with Parker and is a coloring utensil. We are both thinking middle name Robert after both of our grandparents. Any suggestions?

Having a lot of anxiety deciding between two names. In a perfect world I would get 2 more sons and be able to use both names but in the event I don't, I'm wondering which name is more appealing. Nolan James (James is middle name of DH and is FIL name) we did not use a family name with ds1 so I'm not sure I want to make a trend of it, as both DH and I and my brother have family middle names and I feel a lot of pressure to continue even if I like other names better Rhys Thomas (pronounced...

Every year, a new crop of baby names stakes its claim to a place in our culture. I call them the "100 Club": names given to 100 American boys or girls for the first time ever. Some of the 100 Club members are doubtless one-hit wonders that will fade from view. Others, though, point to the future. This year's top-1000 name chart features many 100 Club honorees of recent years, including 2016's top risers Kehlani and Kylo. Meet some more of this year's notable new names that just might be on the...

Hi there, We're having a girl in August and our front-running name is Eleanor. Our last name begins with a P. Names that start with "S" or "A" are out because we don't like the initials ESP or EAP ("extrasensory perception" or "employee assistance program" hah). Victoria might be an option; I really wanted Riley as a family name but DH doesn't. Kind of stuck- any ideas? For what it's worth, I'm of English and German descent and DH is of Italian and Ukrainian descent, so names of a European...

Looking for suggestion on Muslim boy names. Preferably names that will be easily pronounced by English speakers. Also would prefer names that famous celebrities don't have like Zayn, Tariq, Khalifa, etc. Names I like so far are Rayaan, Sami and Hasan. My first son's name is Hadi (this community helped us pick his name last year). Any suggestions will help. TIA ❤️❤️❤️

Bold. Powerful. Audacious. If this year's fast-rising baby names had a theme, it was "no limits." Parents are no longer afraid to go big, choosing names that past generations didn't dare consider. From kings and gods to superheroes and even supervillains, we've entered an age of unprecedented baby name boldness. Images: flickr/milst1, pottermore.com What does that boldness look like? To start with, the names below all ranked among the top 1,000 names for boys or girls last year, all rising in...

With her cross-genre musical style, multiethnic background, and eye-catching look heavy on tattoos and piercings, she makes a statement as a baby-name style...

It's easy to think of celebrities who made their names suddenly popular. It's much harder to think of celebrities who made their names suddenly unpopular. This year, though, we have such an example. In 2016, the first full year after the star formerly known as Bruce Jenner was reintroduced as Caitlyn Jenner, the three fastest-falling names in America were all versions of Caitlyn: #1. Katilyn#2. Caitlin#3. Katelyn And then there's #5 Caitlyn, #9 Katelynn, etc. At first glance, this wholesale...

Meet America's new top names! The Social Security Administration has released the official rankings of the most popular baby names of 2016. The top of the charts remains unchanged: Noah is the country's #1 choice for boys, and Emma returns as #1 for girls. The big newcomer in the top 10 is Elijah, which bumped Alexander out of the top 10 for the first time in a decade. That exchange highlights the increasingly smooth sound of today's boys' names, and the dominance of Old Testament names among...

For name-hunting parents, the birth certificate is the ultimate deadline. You'd better have a baby name plan before you arrive at the hospital, because without a name, they may not let you leave. In many locales, a complete birth certificate is a check-out requirement. That last part wasn't always true. According to the Boston Globe, in the 1950s one out of every 25 newborn Bostonians received a birth certificate with a blank space or placeholder in the given name slot. Wikimedia Commons The...
