baby name wizard.

My all time favorite baby name book, seriously it can't be beat. My copy is so used it is literally falling apart at the seams. I am slightly obsessed with baby names whether I am pregnant or not, which I am currently not, but still I find myself browsing the pages, dreaming up names, checking to see what good sibling names would be, highlighting, marking, folding down page corners.

Favorite features: Look up any name, the name of a child you already have and it lists off sibling names in boy and girl choices. A picture graph with every name showing you the trends from the beginning of time (ok not really but a long time ago) until present day, and the amount of not every day names it provides. So wonderful, really.

Some favorite names of mine?

For a girl: Daphne, Violet, Ruby and Scarlett
For a boy: Oliver, Phineas, Amos and Griffin

We know you all have favorite names and we'd love to hear them if you're willing to share...
Happy name browsing.


  1. I really like your name choices! The girls are especially colorful. Ruby is on our list too!

    girl favorites: gretta, lola, mila, ava, lyla
    boy favorites: jonah, eli(jah), jeremiah, jude, gabriel

  2. I love Scarlett! My sister's name is Daphne and a woman at work whose daughter is expecting is going to name her baby Ruby.

    I like Colette, Audrey, and Caroline for a girl.

    Arthur, Tobias, Daniel for a boy.

    My husband and I are not close to a decision!

  3. love that book! it's my favorite, too. they also have a really fun website that goes along with the book. really cool.

    i have a ruby - great name, and violet is on the top of list for the next baby girl. annabelle is my other girl name. boy names - owen, amos, milo, caleb, or fisher. already have a bentley, maxwell, and a jonah. i'm contstantly making lists of baby nams, too. :)

  4. Thanks! I am checking this out from the library ASAP. We found out we are having our third boy this week and have no idea what to name him! Our first two- Andrew and Hudson were easy to agree on.... We like Owen, but it is becoming more popular and we don't like how there are so many we want a more original name... we need help!

  5. Yes, I LOVE this book..thanks for loaning it to me!

    I have always loved emma and ashley, but they are really over-used now...and for boys..hmmm..funny enough, we do like thomas, but I think Lewis would flip if we didn't call him that...we like clark too (c-dogg's maiden name), but we can't have a lewis and clark..ha ha..

  6. That looks like a great book. The market seems to be over-flooded with baby name books, but this one looks different. I'm going to check it out...

  7. I loved this book when I was pregnant and was always cross referencing. So fun! god luck in your name search!

  8. i could have written that post... you are so right on. that is THE baby name book. mine is also falling apart at the seams - maybe they need a new bindery??

  9. Cute name choices!
    Mine are:
    Cora, Margot, or Violet for a girl
    Jonas or Henry for a boy

  10. I love the baby baby girl name Daphne.

  11. I first came across Baby Name Wizard online. I didn't know they had a book! Ruby is a beautiful name. My daughter is Anna and her middle name is Daisy. If we had another daughter we have thought of Ella/Eleanor. For a boy Charles David.

  12. I read the book all the time too, pregnant or not. I have so many favorite names and name families. I recommend it to any mom to be!
