Hi all! I don't post much on here but just wanted to get some opinions on a middle name for out 4th baby, a girl. Her first name will be Hailey and her middle name will either be Corrine or Marie after my mom (Corrine is my mom's first name Marie her middle). Just having some trouble picking one as they both sound nice to us so just wanted to get some outside opinions on what flows better! Thanks!

Think you know your alphabet, from A to Z? Get ready for a new ranking. Today's list of the 26 English letters is in order of hotness. I tallied the total number of American babies receiving names starting with each initial, and looked at the change over a three-year period. (Change was measured by the Baby Name Wizard Hotness Formula, which considers both percentage change and the absolute number of babies.) The ranking turned out to hold some surprises. If you can guess which baby name...

Looking for a name classic and elegant enough not just for a princess, but a princesse? We've scoured France's old royal family trees for names with regal style and the history to match. These names range in popularity and sound, but each one dazzles with femininity and a certain je ne sais quoi.  While many of the names here are often written with diacritical marks to indicate pronunciation (Joséphine instead of Josephine, for instance), the spellings have been simplified for Americans' sake...

My husband and I love the name George, but I’m a bit nervous about it being too “old man” sounding. I think it’s super cute for a little boy, but will it be one of those names that’s rough through the teen years?

I'm really starting to like this name for my second but the rest of my family isn't really on board. What is your opinion on this name and are there any similar names you like?

When it comes to fashion, nicknames and formal names don’t always go hand in hand. Take the nickname Molly. It has been a popular favorite since the 1970s—the same time period that Mary, the traditional source for Molly, has been in a historic slump. The "Molly approach" is is the standard modern response when a nickname is hot and a formal name is not. You just cut out the middleman and take the nickname straight. That wasn't always such an obvious answer. In ages past it was a safe bet that...

Opinions needed! My DS's middle name is Oliver. We have been having a really hard time finding any names that we like. Our last name is an noun AND it's one syllable so it has been really difficult finding something that sounds right and something we love. We found the name "Olive" last night and fell in love. Nickname (if we decide to use one down the road) will be Liv. Is it weird to name our DD Olive if our DS's middle name is Oliver? Any other suggestions for our difficult last name? We...

If it’s in the zeitgeist, it’s in the names.  Every cultural shift, every hot trend, every new societal understanding leaves lasting footprints in the form of baby names. When it comes to the tumultuous times of the late 1960s, those footprints may look faint from a distance. Top-10 girls’ names of the year of Woodstock included Lisa, Kimberly, Amy and Tammy – not exactly the sound of revolution. But if you dig deeper, you find reflections of the unique spirit and events of the era. I searched...

Team Green. These are the only two names that I like enough to use, but still not completely sold on either. We would like to use the middle name Iris, but that's not set in stone.Siblings are Catherine Victoria and Andrew Richard. If baby is a boy, he will be Leo Constantine. Other suggestions always welcome.

You shall know them by the company they keep. That's the idea behind the "sibling clouds" in our Namipedia. On each name page, we invite readers to submit the names of siblings they've encountered. ("Know a Sebastian? What are his siblings named?") The top 25 sibling results are displayed, with the size of the type reflecting how many times each name was submitted. For popular name pages, the 25 displayed names may be distilled from many thousands of individual name submissions.  The resulting...

From Ezra to Zion, names highlighting the alphabet's last and arguably coolest letter are on the rise. In 1915, the United States recorded only 113 boys’ names that included the letter “Z.” A century later, that number has jumped to over 900. The energy and adventure found in this character are unparalleled, from its sleek form to its bright sound. If you're drawn to Z names but want shy away from their growing popularity, here are fifteen zippy alternatives for boys that don’t currently rank...

We love the name Cora (middle name Lee). We have since before we knew she was a girl but now it's #2 on nameberry. Is it really that popular? I've never known anyone else named Cora and I just don't want her to have an overused name.

Biblical baby name style is riding high. Names like Elijah and Isaiah are major hits, with Ezekiel, Delilah, Emmanuel, Malachi, Nehemiah and more close on their heels. The more distinctly biblical a name sounds, the more parents are drawn to it — and they're reaching ever deeper to find unusual names that fill the bill. To show off the reach of this new biblical style, I've assembled a list of 55 names from the Bible that are currently at all-time historic peaks for U.S. usage. (As in the...

You choose a name you love for your first child. For your second you choose a closely matching name, sticking with the sound you like best to create a “set,” and hopefully a special bond between your kids. Then comes baby #3, and you reach a point of reckoning. Is the theme still working for you? If not, can you escape it? Fixer Upper reality tv stars Joanna and Chip Gaines are facing this point, times two. They have two boys and two girls: Drake and Duke, Ella Rose and Emmie Kay. That’s two...

What baby name trends will be setting the style for the year ahead? To predict future directions, I look for names with popularity acceleration. Individual names on an accelerating rise are not only trendy on their own, but can point to whole styles on the way up. I screened the statistics for names that have risen in popularity at a growing rate for for the past three years in a row. Then I looked for common themes. The six styles below leapt out again and again. The specific names listed all...

Every month, thousands of BabyNameWizard.com readers search our Namipedia for girls’ names starting with Ken, Jeff, Tom, and other masculine nicknames. Searches for boys’ names with those beginnings are much scarcer. What’s the story? Should we expect a coming generation of little girls name Jeff and Tom? I believe the phenomenon actually arises from a more traditional naming impulse. Our readers are looking for namesakes. Ken, Jeff, Tom and friends are (sorry) “grandpa names” – nicknames for...
