Ways to find the perfect baby name

We’ve got a lot of baby names in our database, so you might find yourself unable to decide between many great options. Here are a few tips to help you narrow your selection:

  • Start with a nickname. Starting with a full name is intimidating, so think of something short and fun instead. Once you fall in love with a nickname, you can create a unique formal name to match.
  • Use a family name. These always have personal meaning, and they’re a great way to honor an important relative in your life.
  • Think of someone important to you. Maybe, instead of a relative, you’d like to honor an influential teacher or best friend.
  • Think of what will age well. Sure, naming your child The Rock after your favorite wrestler-turned-actor sounds great now, but what about in the years after Dwayne Johnson steps away from the spotlight? Plus, how will “The Rock” look on college and job applications? Try for a name that mixes coolness and longevity.
  • Don’t strive for perfection. There’s no such thing as the perfect name, and trying to come up with one will only stress you out. As Meaghan O’Connell wisely said in a post for The Cut, the game is rigged, but whatever name you choose will feel perfect in the end.
