Baker and Occupational Names
Dear Jennifer, I love Baker as a surname, and it’s also listed on your website as a first name. Is Baker an accepted first name for a boy? Sincerely,
Sasha R. Hi Sasha,

Absolutely Baker can be a first name! Occupational names that were originally surnames have become pretty trendy in the past couple of years, especially for boys. More
Name Pronunciation
Name Pronunciation
Hi Jennifer! Sometimes when I’m looking at names on this site I’m not 100% certain of their pronunciation. Is there a way for you to add a sound bite or a pronunciation key to the names? I’m sure that would be a big task to undertake… I love this site. More
Ethan for a girl?
Hi Jennifer, A little question from a fan of your site from the Netherlands! I’m a single mom with a beautiful little boy Caleb and having another little bundle of joy in 2016. I’ve decided on the name Ethan if I’m having a boy, but can’t really decide on a girls name. More

Go Westry, Young Man!
Hello Jennifer, I was reading book called The Bungalow by Sarah Jio and I really liked the hero’s first name: Westry.

Message from the Name Angel: Don’t do this!
Dear Jennifer, My husband loves the name Heaven Leigh. But our last name is Messenger, so her name would be Heaven Leigh Messenger. I don’t know if that just sounds ridiculous. I have read many things about the name Heaven, from “it’s beautiful,” to “it sounds like a strippers name.” I don’t know if I like it it or not. More
Disney's Charlotte "Lottie" La Boeuf
Two First Names?
Hi Jennifer, I’m just over 3 months along with my second child and my husband and I are slightly disagreeing about a girl’s name. We’ve decided on Abraham for a boy but for a girl we like Lottie Ann. What we’re disagreeing about is that I want to go with Lottie Ann as the first name and Margret at the middle name (we’d be honoring all grandmothers that way) but my husband thinks we should use the Lottie as the first name and Ann or Anne as the middle but to still call her “Lottie Ann”.
