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

Moonyeen
Hi, there – Big fan of the site! I’m wondering if you have any information on the name “Moonyeen?” It was my grandmother’s middle name but I have no idea where it comes from or what it means. Thank you,
Karen Siddiqi Hi Karen, Moonyeen was an unusual name that turned up briefly in the U.S. More
Dr. Who Name
Jennifer,
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
Eureka! A new name.
Hi Jennifer!
I am a frequent visitor of your site, as I love looking up different names and getting story inspiration. I am currently reading a book with main character, Eureka, which I think is a beautiful and unique name. Would you mind telling me what it means and adding it to your site?  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
The Name Wickham
Hi Jennifer! We have begun our search for baby names and considering the name Wickham/Wick. I’ve come to your site (as I do very often) and notice it’s not on it. Would you mind letting me know what it means? I love to know the meanings to all names! More
Our Pets, our Babies
To Whom it May Concern: While browsing your website I was shocked to discover that you’ve included “Pet Names” on your BabyNames website. Perhaps a staff or editing member of your site is confused…animals are not humans. They don’t need extra special names. More
The name Nausicaå
Hi Jennifer! Ever since I first saw Hayao Miyazaki’s movie ‘Nausicaå of the Valley of the Wind’, I’ve loved the name of the titular character. Since your website doesn’t have it, I did a brief google search and found that it means ‘burner of ships’, but there wasn’t any citation to a reputable source, so I’m little doubtful on how accurate this.
