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

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.
I was wondering if you could tell me more about it just for fun. I also wondered if you would like to add it to your site. [More]
“Rebranding” an Adopted Child
Dear Jennifer, We will be adopting a beautiful, spunky, outgoing, very popular blonde female very soon. To give you a little detail to further assist us, we will be moving after the adoption. We felt that since we were adopting her and her current name will be changing anyway, that this is a great time to help (if you will) “re-brand” her name! [More]
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]
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”.

Name Challenge: Orange
Hi Jennifer, I’m a trans person looking for masculine names for myself that have a meaning involving orange: the fruit or the color, or something similar? (I feel like i tend to find a lot more feminine ones, like clementine or amber) Thanks!!! [More]
More about Loie
Hi Jennifer, I saw that someone was asking about the name Loie. My mother’s cousin is named Loie, pronounced Loy, rhyming with boy. She was born in northern Florida in the 1940s from Cuban and British ancestry. Not sure if that would have an effect on the pronunciation. [More]
