We’re expecting a baby girl in December and the struggle is real when it comes to names!! Big sister is Josephine (Josie) and we want #2 to also have a name that is a little old fashioned, not too common/not too different and has some “spunk” to it. We raise strong and sassy little girls and the name should fit! Any help would be appreciated! Thank you.

We just got confirmation that our son is getting a sister. He is Truman Lane B*****. We often call him Tru as a nickname. Now we are at an impass with a name for his baby sister. Help! We do not want any really popular names, top 10 is completely out of the question.

Thought we had decided on names, but I keep thinking about how much I love our second choices, too! Their older brother is Malachi, and we want to stick with biblical first names.

Want to know what kind of names are in fashion today? We'll give you a tour, from A to Z. We've selected a full alphabet of girl's names to represent American name style. Since that style has many faces, we've listed four names for each letter. First, we divided names based on popularity. Every name on our alphabetic list has fashion momentum, but they're at different points on their trajectories. The "bullseye" names below are popular names in full flower, while the "upcoming" names are...

One baby name selection is a personal choice. Four million baby names a year, taken together, make up something more: a portrait of the state of the American psyche. It's a picture worth looking at closely. We had a reminder of that fact this weekend, when the New York Times ran a cover story revealing that maternal age (the age at which women have children) is a key driver of societal differences. That's an insight names already taught us years ago. Starting with the 2004 election, I tracked...

If you watch superhero movies, you've probably noticed the trend. All the stars seem to be named Chris. An actor is cast as Captain America? Call him Chris. Thor? Chris. Robin? Star-Lord? Steve Trevor? Chris, Chris, Chris. Many have remarked on this coincidence, joked about it, and even compiled rankings of best Chrises in hero-dom. But here at BabyNameWizard.com, we want to know why. Is it pure chance, or does it point to something deeper about the actors, or about the name? Is Chris an...

For fresh names with crowd-pleasing appeal, one of the best places to look is abroad. Italian parents have already given their seal of approval to the names below: they all rank in the top 200 in Italy, but have yet to make the top 500 in the United States. Some will sound familiar, some more surprising, but each of these names has a feminine sweetness that could appeal to American namers. Chiara. Melodious Chiara is the Italian variant of Claire, commonly associated with Saint Chiara of...

So at 7 months we FINALLY picked a name we love. Keira/Kira! (pronounced KEER-a) Now a problem I didn't even consider, how the heck to spell it?!??! I don't want to set her up for a lifetime of people messing it up (speaking or spelling wise) so what do you think makes the most sense to pronounce "KEER-a"? Keira KieraKiraKirraThanks!

Baby name history is like a fossil record of culture. You can see broad trends in society over generations, but also individual moments frozen in time. Today we're turning back the clock to look at the American homefront in World War I, as captured by baby names. The Great War began in Europe in 1914, and the United States entered the fight in 1917. Peace came with the Armistice of November, 1918. Along the way, American parents honored the war's people and places, battles and allies in the...

Let's not even call them girls' names. The names we're talking about today are women's names. They're all grown up, and they mean business. The seven names detailed below are classics with a formidable heft. There's nothing lacy about them, and they don't end in the vowel sounds commonly associated with feminine style. Yet they're not boyish either. Names like Margaret and Helen project strength in a confidently female form. What's more, these names stand tough against the fickle winds of...

Think of a catchy word or brand name associated with guns, and you've probably thought of a hot baby name. From Cannon to Pistol, Remington to Colt, firearms are making their mark on American names. Firearm names are hardly alone as as a creative baby name trend. Just last week, I was tallying up the wave of new X names from Xxavier to Roux. But gun names stand out because they break the one restriction today's parents usually observe in naming. They edge close to politics, a once-common...

Ready to go the xxtra mile? The letter x is our millennium's baby name turbocharger, the favorite way to add a burst of energy that sets a name apart from the pack. Names featuring an x are ten times as popular today as in the mid-20th Century. Names starting with x are 70 times as popular. Top choices include classics like Xavier, and fresh respellings like Jaxon. But once you look beyond the top names to the rest of the baby name stats, you start to see how far today's parents are willing to...

Almost every adult Timothy goes by Tim. That name is a core member of the "All-American nice guy nicknames," the everyday name set that was the bedrock of 20th-century guy style. For 21st-century babies, though, those familiar nicknames are endangered species. You may meet a Michael, but not a Mike; a Jonathan, but not a Jon. That doesn't mean, though, that nicknames have to disappear altogether. Picture a Timothy called Timo (TEE-moh) instead. Doesn't it take years off the name's age? Timo is...
