I first heard the name  Harlow when Nicole Richie named her baby that. It’s kind of a GP and a little out of the box for me but I’m curious on your opinions.

We're struggling with a name for DD2, due in March. I love Grace, but hubby and I are agnostic and atheist. I think of it more as the word (ie graceful), but he thinks people might assume it's religious, first and foremost. Thoughts? Also open to suggestions. My other options are Corinne, Sabrina, and Eliza. DH likes Hannah, Teagan, and Emily. We're both "meh" on each other's choices. TIA!

Hubby and I tend to like more traditional names, with a few exceptions. My favorites are Juliet, Grace, Lucy, and Addison. Middle name will be Paget (family name) and last name is 3 syllables beginning with B. What are people's thoughts on these first names? I know Addison is the more trendy of the four, but is it too trendy? I personally don't know any Addisons, but I think the name was really popular a few years ago. Juliet is not as popular, but Lucy and Grace have been in the top 50 or so...

I posted for name opinions during my last pregnancy and appreciated the honest feedback. Here I am 2 weeks from this due date back again asking for help. My top girl name has been Mila since my last pregnancy but recently I’ve been very fond of the idea of Nina. Middle name will be a family name. Likely either: Louise, Elizabeth, or Ann. Last name starts with J and is 3 syllables Her older brother is Arlo. Any opinions on which name/middle name combination is the best choice?? Thanks!

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...

DH and I cannot find common ground for a girl name.  I am due in 6 weeks and it is driving me bonkers not having some girl names that we both like.  For boys we have a few to choose from once baby arrives including Carson and Connor (to give you an idea of where we agreed).  But for girls we are very far apart on styles.  I like more traditional names (like Margaret, Eleanor, and Rebecca) which have nice nicknames for little ones IMO.  My go-to name was Hazel after my grandmother but my cousin...

Ready to make a time capsule of the year, in name form? It's time to choose the 2018 Name of the Year—together. Our annual Name of the Year honors the way that names change with the times, and the way they capture the times. Looking back at past NOTY choices, you can feel the movement of culture and history: Barack in 2007; Siri in 2011; even Boaty McBoatface in 2016. The honorees have included names of babies and adults, of real people and fictional, of idealized concepts and viral jokes....

It turns out the Mayflower passengers inspire us in more than their persevering spirit and incredible vision. Embarking in 1620, parents from Delfshaven, Holland and London, England sailed the Atlantic at great risk in order to establish a New World. While many of them liked traditional names such as William and Mary, there are plenty of surprises among the baby names chosen by these first colonists.

Two of America's most fashionable boys' names have a lot in common. They're trim, light, and Irish. Liam, an Irish short form of William, has risen from rarity to mega-hit in the in the space of a single generation. It's now America's #1 boy's name. What's more, Liam's popularity as a nickname has helped keep William near the top of the charts even as other boys' classics have plummeted. Finn, a Irish name meaning "fair" or "white," didn't even crack America's top-1,000 name list in the 20th...

This is not your usual royal baby naming dilemma. When British royals William and Kate were preparing to name their first heir, tradition was the byword. The baby would be directly in the line of succession, so their name choice was, as I wrote at the time, "a statement of public identity for the royal family; a branding opportunity for the British throne." That made for a tightly limited set of name options. They had to select from the purest pool of British regal heritage and national...

Mermaids and pirates have been captivating the imaginations of both children and adults for ages. These timeless legends of seafaring have given us songs, stories, movies, national holidays, theme parks, and more. We simply love the sea and the stories that have been told about it. If you’re looking for some keen pirate names, or some sea-worthy mermaid names, we have you covered on both fronts.

You love the name—but it's "taken." It's an all-too familiar feeling for expectant parents. Perhaps your sister-in-law just named her baby Penelope, the very name you'd picked out for a future daughter. Perhaps you've always planned to name a son Oliver, but now that Oliver's a top-10 nationwide hit, you're afraid it will make too common a pairing with your surname Jones. Whatever your definition of "taken," you're in the market for alternatives. What other names could capture the same feeling...

Do you want a baby name that comes with a creeping shadow and a chill down your spine? You might, judging from the names American parents are choosing today. Flat-out spooky names are more popular than ever before. We're not just talking about names you can link with scary stories. That's too easy. Sure, "Jason" was the creepy killer in a long string of Friday the 13th movies, but at the end of the day his name is still Jason, same as your brother-in-law.
