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

Native American Names
Jennifer, I’ve always loved the name Dakota. While I’m not yet expecting, it’s at the top of our list for a girl as it’s one of the few names we agree on. Recently, though, someone mentioned to me that it’s a culturally insensitive name due to the Native American tribe and that it would be cruel to use it for a child’s name. More
Anagram Names
Hi Jennifer, For as long as I remember, I planned on giving all my children names which are anagrams of my name, Adina. I named our first baby boy Aidan. I’m expecting my second baby in January, so I don’t know the sex yet. More
Matching Meanings
Hi Jennifer, Your site has been my most visited site recently. My wife and I are expecting a baby boy this fall (first child). However we got into a bit of confusion over a name we initially chosen. The name is Jayson Dallas Teo. More
Nicknames and Tribe Names
Hi Jennifer! I have a little boy Noah Benjamin. I never thought when I was pregnant that Noah could be shortened but he has become Nono, No and Nose to pretty much everyone, including myself! My real question is when I have my second boy what to name him? More
Eviana
Jennifer, I just have to say I love your site. My husband and I are really banking on having a girl & I heard the name Eviana (Ev-E-Annah) the other day, but could not find it in your database. I was wondering what the meaning of this name was or if it was just made up? More
New Name: Vahn
Hi Jennifer,
I have named my son Vahn, I noticed it was not in your database, I have found it to be a male form of Siobhan and some of its meaning to be Justice. It was a name of a character in Legends of Legaia. More
