we recently found out the baby #2 is a girl! We're stumped on names this time around. We like classic names. Popularity doesn't matter as long as it is classic-popular, rather than trendy popular. We don't do BNOG. Middle name will be Ruth and last name is similar to Lane and starts with B. Names we like but aren't sold on are Genevieve, Cecilia and Cordelia. We're looking for a longer FN since middle and last are short. We love Isla and Alice but scrapped them due to length and poor...

The top of the new English baby name charts has a traditional look. It's stocked with regal classics like royal kids George and Charlotte, plus cuddly English favorites like Poppy and Archie. If you want to see where name trends are headed, though, you have to look past the top-10 list. The fastest-rising names of the year in England and Wales point in directions both old and new. Check out the top risers and top new debuts of the year: ENGLAND'S HOTTEST RISING NAMES OF...

The top baby names in England and Wales have just been announced, and they're...olive. The #1 boy's name: Oliver The #1 girl's name: Olivia If that repetition isn't enough to give you a sense of déjà vu, we actually have seen this before. The Olives last reigned as England's baby name king and queen in 2010, and at least one of them has held a #1 slot for 7 of the past 9 years. There's no question, this is England's Olive Age. Both names have been shaped by literature. Oliver arrived with the...

I feel like I'm at my wits end with baby name lists and of course my darling husband. We are expecting number 2, a boy! And of course we are struggling with names. I'm more of a traditionalist but DH is... who knows what he is. DD is AdelaideThe current leader of the boy names that we agree on is Benjamin. I do like the name, it's a little more popular than I typically go but not so much I'm worried about 85 being in his class. But I don't know if it is THE name of just a name I'm gonna settle...

First time mama here!  We are pretty seriously considering naming our daughter Thea (pronounced Thee-uh) Jordan but I like to hear all sides of things, all the pros and cons, before I make a big decision like this.  In the other forum I participate in, a couple of people mentioned that it can be pronounced Tee-uh or Tay-uh, but I think this might be somewhat regional/cultural? I have never heard either pronunciation, unless it was actually spelled Tia or Tea.  Jordan is a given, we are 100%...

Tennis star Serena Williams and her fiancé, internet entrepreneur Alexis Ohanian, recently welcomed their first child: Alexis Ohanian Jr. That seemingly ultra-conservative name choice was anything but, because the newborn Alexis is a girl. A female "Junior" turns tradition on its head, transforming a classic patriarchial symbol into a more complex and dramatic statement. Namesakes have always been a masculine realm. There is no female equivalent to Junior; surnames are traditionally inherited...

For centuries, Mary was the number one name for girls in many countries throughout the world. We can thank the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, for the name popularity; in a culture where the Christian religion reigned supreme, honoring her was of utmost importance to many new parents. While global communities - and name tastes - may have changed, we can still thank Mary today for the dozens of beautiful names that she inspired over the years. Marian names refer to those that honor the...

We live in a golden age of baby name invention. Every year, scores of new names appear for the first time ever in America's baby name statistics. Some are imports, some are creative spellings, some are mashups of other popular names. And as you'll see below, some are demons, palaces, and computer operating systems. I've collected 20 noteworthy examples of girls' names that just made their historical debuts. (The minimum requirement is 5 boys or girls receiving the name in a single year.)...

Meet 23 boys' names you've never encountered before. They never once appeared in America's baby name statistics until this past year. What does it mean to be brand new? Consider that over 100,000 different names from Aaban to Zzyzx had already qualified in past years. (The minimum requirement is 5 boys or girls receiving the name in a single year.) To break new ground a name has to represent a shift in style, an openness to new languages, spellings, or sources of inspiration, or simply the...

During the 1880’s, names like Emma, Lillian, and Charlie ruled the roost - sound familiar? For today’s namers, everything old is new again - whether it’s the result of the “fourth-generation” rule or a newfound interest in classics of old, modern parents love the sound of names from this era. Mark Twain called it "The Gilded Age," referring to the aesthetic innovations of the time that tried to mask the turbulent political and social changes that boomed through the late 1800's.  The lovely...

They say that one man's last name is another man's first. Or at least they should say that, as the line between surnames and given names gets blurrier every day. Surnames lure us with a rich vein of new baby name ideas that are grounded in the familiar. It's an irresistible combo for many parents: the name's style is fresh and new, yet everyone can spell and pronounce it and nobody calls it "made up." Surname-styled names like Mason, Madison and Riley already rank near the top of the...

Something mysterious has happened to America's popular baby names: they've disappeared. No, the names Noah and Emma haven't suddenly vanished from the nation's nurseries. Those names are still #1 for American boys and girls. But it's debatable whether they're truly popular, at least by historical standards. For perspective, let's take a look at popular names of the past. Dialing all the way back to 1880 (the earliest year of detailed baby name stats), half of all American boys received a name...

These days, name inspiration can come from all kinds of cultural icons, from rock stars to politicians. When looking for a worthy namesake, choosing one that embodies a plethora of positive traits is ideal. Why not consider the fabulous female stars of 1930’s and 1940’s Hollywood films? Witty, strong, and beautiful, these women continue to inspire audiences and fans today. This list contains thirteen names outside of the current top 400 that come from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Elegant and...
