Our baby girl is due in a few weeks, and I've really loved Lily (Olivia and Mia are a few backups?). Side note - our last name begins with L as well, and DH wants to use my mom's and my middle name which also begins with an L. Which of the names do you like best and why? DH is not a huge fan of alliteration, but most I've asked say it has a nice ring to it. Thank you in advance!

My SO and I both love Amelia Rose for a girl, but I'm starting to panic that it's too popular. We both also like Emilia, since it's very similar, but would everyone just mistake it for Amelia anyway?Looking for opinions! We're pretty set on one of those two names, since we're mostly going to be calling her Millie.Edit: I fixed the spelling. I always meant Emilia, I just had a brain fizzle.

When it comes go girls' names, the letter A reigns over the whole alphabet. It's the #1 first (and last) letter for American girls, by a mile. After A comes a powerhouse trio: E as in Emma, M as in Mia, S as in Sophia. Together, the four initials account for nearly half of American girls' names.   With such overwhelming popularity, you might expect that every traditional A, E, M and S name is already in heavy rotation. Yet a search through names of past generations reveals a bounty of...

The top baby name of the 1970s was Michael, but meeting a man named Mike doesn't immediately conjure up the "Me Decade." Michael was too diffuse of a hit, encompassing half a century in its popularity wave. For a pure, potent dose of the '70s, you need names concentrated in that decade. We've identified 20 names with pure '70s power. If you meet someone named Kojak, Chakakhan, or any of the other names on this list, you can be pretty confident they were born in the 1970s—and that their parents...

Here at BabyNameWizard.com, we leave no stone unturned in our investigation of names and culture. In that spirit, we present a new first: a tale of baby names and body hair. The name in today's spotlight is the playfully regal confection Milady. Some may associate the term "milady" with the cynical seduction techniques of "The Pickup Artist" a decade ago. Others may hear it as kin to new exalted name inventions like Myangel, LaKing and SirCharles. But Milady first became an American baby name...

Hollywood wouldn’t be what it is today without the pioneering glamour of its early starlets—and neither would the U.S. top 100 names list. Turn-of-the-century names like Clara (as in actress Clara Bow), Lillian (Gish), and Alice (Terry) are back in fashion, with modern parents drawn to their elegance and vintage vibes. If you like the throwback style, more names of the silent film era are ready to be discovered. Some of these feminine names exude sophistication and uniqueness, while others...

Seven names with a "bel" ending, from Annabelle to Mabel, rank among the top thousand names for American girls. Does that exhaust all the possibilities? Not by a long shot. A host of "bels"—and other popular name endings—are waiting to be discovered among the name choices of past generations. The name statistics of the 1880s-1920s feature hundreds of names with fashionable suffixes. I searched for currently rare girls' names ending in -belle/-bel, -ora and -ia, discarding options that stepped...

In May, the U.S. government will release its annual baby name statistics and I will post the new top 20 name list in this space. It's the most exciting naming day of the year, my profession's Superbowl Sunday. But how much does that top 20 list really mean? The answer is "less and less every year." The top 20 names represent the points of agreement and commonality in our baby name culture, and agreement and commonality are going out of style. The driving force behind current name trends is the...

What makes an old-time name come back? Why is Hazel a darling of 21st Century parents, while Ethel remains in hibernation? The answer lies deep in the mysterious heart of contemporary style.

Image: Shutterstock/Anna Kraynova I rounded up 25 names that first peaked in the decades between 1890 and 1920 then fell out of fashion, only to surge back into style in the 21st century....
