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 ]

Dr. Who Name
I absolutely love your website! I was watching Dr. Who the other day and one of the characters names was Cathica. I can’t find any information on the name – if it is even a name used before or if it was made up for Dr Who. [ More ]

Baby A and Baby B
Hi Jennifer,
Your website is wonderful, and I’m in awe of the amazing work that you do. As an aspiring author, I am constantly scouring your website to find names for my characters. Since I’m only twenty years old, I’m not going to be naming children of my own anytime soon, but I find your website incredibly helpful for my fictional family. [ More ]
