I finally asked DH for some name ideas and these were his suggestions. They're both from Lord of the Rings, his favorite books. Our first two are named after Little Women characters which is my favorite book. DS is Theodore Robert nn Teddy and DD is Anastasia Josephine nn Annie. Elanor could have the nn Ellie and then it would be similar to what we did with DD.I love the sound of Galadriel but can't think of a way to shorten it.I'm willing to put both of these on the short list but I'm not...

We will be TTC later this year, but it's never too early to think about baby names! We have a boy name picked out but have no short list for a girl (at present). DS is Theodore Robert nn Teddy. DD is Anastasia Josephine nn Annie. Surname is 2 syllables and starts with B. I'm looking for a name that is feminine enough to sit next to Anastasia but has a shorter and more common nickname. We love old fashioned names that feel timeless. Looking for suggestions beyond the top 50 or 100. TIA!

Looking for ONE syllable boy names that go well with Clint and Lane. Also a sister named Madeline, but I prefer short, simple rugged boy names. Currently on my list are Beau, Luke and Finn. Middle name will be Mason.

It seems like the name Bear is rising in popularity for boys. Does anyone know any boys named Bear (as their first given name, not a nickname)? I read that it is of German and French origin. It is growing on me!

Finally got my BFP! This is my second child after 7 years. I am due sometime between the end of August and beginning of September 😍. My daughters name is Lilliana Drew. Our last name is King. And our girl name is set and stone as Evelina Rayne King. It’s Italian and it means “wished for child” ❤️ As far as big names go, we have not one name that really sticks to me, our ideas have been -Jameson Keith -Apollo Theodore -Bennett Asher I cant seem to find anything I totally am falling in love...

I know I said the last poll would be the last poll, but I’ve narrowed it down further and DH is no help. Which name do you like best with big sisters Penelope and Zoe? Thanks for putting up with me!

Once upon a time, tv commercials were America's common language. They were catchy, they were inescapable, they were universal. In the glory days of network tv, you might not have watched the exact same shows as your neighbors, but you definitely knew not to squeeze the Charmin, asked "Where's the beef?," and could sing all the words to the "Meow Mix" cat food song. (Spoiler: they're all "meow.") For the ultimate proof of the impact of vintage tv ads, I present baby names. Meet three names that...

Unusual, but not weird. Not trendy, but not outdated either. Easy to spell and pronounce, but not ordinary? If that's your impossible baby name target, no worries, we've got you covered. We've tracked down 16 boys' names that are familiar, usable, and perennially rare. So rare, in fact, that none of them has ever ranked among the top 300 names in America. Even the likes of Millard and Wilmer have managed to climb higher than that. The rarity should make any of these names distinctive to your...

A brand-new year means brand-new baby name trends. Here are eight best bets for 2019 style. These names were all unusual last year, but their combination of fashionable sound and new, breakout star power has them poised to rise in the year ahead. Baker (M)This energetic surname was left behind by the tradesman trend that sent names like Carter, Cooper, Tyler and Parker to the top. Thanks to Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield, that should change in a hurry. Kiki (F)The name Kiki has...

It all started with a spring picnic. In April, two African-American men fired up a grill for a cookout in an Oakland, California park. A white woman who was passing by objected to their grilling in that location, demanded that they leave, and ultimately called the police on their picnic. A video of the incident went viral, and on the internet the woman was dubbed "BBQ Becky." The derisive nickname quickly became a template. Throughout the year, more white women who called the police on their...

Names change with the times, reflect the times, and help shape the times. These three names all helped define the times of 2018. Photo: Getty Images Abcde. In November, an outraged mother accused a Southwest Airlines gate agent of publicly "name shaming" her five-year-old daughter. Seeing the girl's unconventional name, the agent laughed and pointed and commented loudly to other employees. Most shockingly, the agent took a photo of the young girl's boarding pass and posted it to social media....

Oh, those hidden o's. They're the special ingredient in hot names from Margot to Willow to Pharaoh. End a name in the sound "o," but not the letter o, and you have a recipe for high style. The final o may be cloaked by a silent letter, as in Harlow and Shiloh, or an alternate spelling may lead to a similar sound, as in Beau. The effect of the spelling is subtle, but it shapes the name's impact. Think of how different Harlow and Arlo feel, despite being just a breath apart in pronunciation. I...

Familiar names, rare names. The two are opposites. Yet a handful of names manage to hit both contradictory targets, and zero in on the style bullseye at the same time. I've uncovered 15 examples of girls' names that have flown consistently under the radar. Not only are they rare today, but they've never been popular in the United States. None has ever ranked among America's top 300 girls' names, a bar low enough that even names like Elva and Floy have crossed it. That makes them true...
