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

New Names: Nathana and Veina?
Hello Jennifer, I’ve come up with two new unique girl names. The names are Veina and Nathana. I think I came up with Veina because I was thinking about the name Reigna which is beautiful as well. Nathana is derived from Nathan but has a feminine side to it. [More]
From Grandma
Dear Jennifer, I am a 66 year old grandma.  I have two grandchildren right now, however, my youngest son just got married. Your website provides not only information and fun facts to the expectant parents, but a wonderful resource for me.   [More]

I wanted to add some input to Jennifer’s request for information on people’s experience with common names that required spelling out. I am an unfortunate victim of just such a name, KATHRYN. I have never liked my name and never felt like it fit me – however the worst part about my name is constantly having to spell it out for people. [More]
A Natural Name

On Name Sniping
