I think we’ve found “the name”— if she’s a girl, like we’ve been thinking, that is. I was hoping for some first reactions and opinions to help us feel it out. We picked it, so of course we’re a little biased!Sofie Beatrice KearnsWe chose Sofie/Sofia immediately. Even before pregnancy. Beatrice was my grandmothers name, and DH wanted to include a “family significance”. We’ve been calling her our little bee/baby bumblebee, and we like that we can carry that nickname through if we call her Sofie...

We have narrowed it down to two names right now. Big sister is Audrey. My husband really likes Calvin, but I can’t fully commit.

Baby girl is due at the end of August and we still haven’t decided on her name. My husband loves Olive and, while I do too, I’m also starting to love Iris. My only concern is that Iris doesn’t really have any good nicknames. Which would you choose- Olive or Iris? Big brother is James.

Please help us narrow it down. Middle name would be either Jay, Miles, Alan, or John. (Family names). Siblings have "classic" names, but I'm not overly concerned with matching.

Thoughts on the sibling set Eleanor and Theodore?We're locked in on Eleanor, but I've been struggling with names for a brother. I love the name Theodore, but I'm wondering if they're too much together. Love each of them for being classic/vintage, strong, not super trendy names that each have a lot of nn potential. Brother is coming soon so I'm running out of time. Thanks in advance!

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 Not trendy, but not outdated either.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...

Our annual Name of the Year honors the way that names change with the times, and the way they capture the times.
