Ask Baby Names

Baby name advice from Jennifer Moss, founder & CEO of BabyNames.com

Anagram Names
Hi Jennifer, For as long as I remember, I planned on giving all my children names which are anagrams of my name, Adina. I named our first baby boy Aidan. I’m expecting my second baby in January, so I don’t know the sex yet. [More]
Matching Meanings
Hi Jennifer, Your site has been my most visited site recently. My wife and I are expecting a baby boy this fall (first child). However we got into a bit of confusion over a name we initially chosen. The name is Jayson Dallas Teo. [More]
Nicknames and Tribe Names
Hi Jennifer! I have a little boy Noah Benjamin. I never thought when I was pregnant that Noah could be shortened but he has become Nono, No and Nose to pretty much everyone, including myself! My real question is when I have my second boy what to name him? [More]
Eviana
Jennifer, I just have to say I love your site. My husband and I are really banking on having a girl & I heard the name Eviana (Ev-E-Annah) the other day, but could not find it in your database. I was wondering what the meaning of this name was or if it was just made up? [More]
New Name: Vahn
Hi Jennifer,
I have named my son Vahn, I noticed it was not in your database, I have found it to be a male form of Siobhan and some of its meaning to be Justice. It was a name of a character in Legends of Legaia. [More]

Marcelina M. Hi Marcelina, Names are like words-they have origins and roots. Many names are derivatives of other names. [More]
Feedback on Dexter
Hi Jennifer, I was just browsing through your Q&A and came across the question about the name Dexter being too reminiscent of the serial killer from the TV show. You advise against using the name because it has “bad associations” right now. [More]
