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

Name Roots
Hi Jennifer, I love your site & have been searching for the meaning of 2 names I am interested in. The first one is Liviana or I may spell it Livianna & the second is Kindley. I really love both of these names but haven’t been able to find the meaning or either. More
Pronunciation of Madeline
Hi Jennifer, I have always wondered what the appropriate pronunciation of the name Madeline. I have heard it pronounced Made-line and Made-lynn. Me and my husband really like the name Maddie and are thinking of using the name Madeline (Made-line). Do you think that this name is too outdated or confusing? More
Anthony has no Meaning
Hi,
I just wanted to let you know that I saw that the name Anthony, as I tried looking up its meaning on babynames.com, reads “Unknown.” Well I also happen to have a Name That Baby book that lists its meaning. More
About Kreatyve Name Spellings

DWTS Names

them:

– Keoikantse (South African)
– Artem (Russian)
– Edyta (Polish) Thanks!! More
Will the name Gage Age?
Dear Jennifer, My husband and I are considering the name Gage for our son. I like that it is unique but not weird. I also like that it’s short (we have a long last name), easy to spell and pronounce. My only concern is whether or not the name Gage will “age well.” Meaning, how will my son as an adult be perceived in the business world? More
