Maybe if my baby had a December 25 due date, I would’ve considered some undeniably festive, holiday inspired baby names. Maybe not. But you better believe these holiday baby name “favorites” wouldn’t have topped my list. More

Hyphenating wasn’t on the table, nor was a portmanteau, a popular trend of combining names. We’re not exactly sure how you would pronounce Allziellengler, and Jessarrett sounds like something you need to hire an exterminator to deal with. He likes ultra-feminine, almost Victorian names like Winnifred Sophronia. So badly does he want a girl that he refuses to discuss boy’s names. More
You don’t have to be goth, weird or wicked to like these horror movie Halloween themed baby names for girls. More
Debates about classism have often arisen when mocking the many “Yoonique” names that have popped up for children in the last five years or so. Laughing about some seemingly “janky” spelling for a kid’s name crosses into some racist territory faster than you can adjust the spelling for Lindsay when you consider the cultural implications of calling someone’s name “weird.” Like when one Reddit user by the name of “fuckyourteam” asks WTF is up with black parents giving all their kids “weird” names?

I named my baby Holt. I did the male version of the stripper test. “Hey, that’s Holt who scored that goal!” And, “This is my boyfriend, Holt.” But…but…but. Either people think I’m a fucking moron or some people really don’t know social etiquette. More
Now that this family is recovering and all expected to be fine, I can’t help but feel they totally dropped the ball with baby Kimberly’s name, or even her middle name, considering this little girl was born due to her mom being struck by lightning. More
You and I may have bout of royal baby fever and be super jazzed (with a twinge of sadness) about the International Royal Baby Tour. But let’s all pause and have a moment of silence for those who are vastly more obsessed and royal baby crazed than our little community on the web. Such as British mothers who are intentionally leaving their newborn babies unnamed until the original P.O.C. gets here so they can jack that Prince(ess) name. Can I get a big resounding WTF.
Nicknames usually come from a place of fondness. We don’t plan on them happening, but they usually evolve from an inside joke or a personality trait or a happy memory we associate with the person we give them to. If the nickname is fitting it is usually used by others as well. We worry enough about what we put on a birth certificate, and I find it hard to believe a lot of parents are freaking out over what nickname our kids end up with. Unless it is something nasty or mean, but do you really know any adults commonly known as “Jerkface” to others? More

Ever since it was reported that Kim Kardashian delivered Kanye West‘s baby five weeks early, Mommyish readers have been having nothing short of a heyday throwing around hypothetical baby names. Some of my favorite readers threw around such gems as Kadence, Kash Kow, Konda Kimye, Kardinal West. According to Media Takout’s notoriously incorrect sleuthing, you guys weren’t too far off. More
Listen, I love baby names. I know a lot of people love baby names. I could talk about them all day long, debating my own preferences and yours. But I like talking about names — meanings, spellings, bad experiences you’ve had with someone of the same name or griping about reasons I can’t use a name I loved since I was little. This piece however, reads more like a novel, with mounting tensions at every turn. More
As my co-worker, and everyone’s favorite Mommyish writer, Eve Vawter, would say: doublefuckingnewsflash, people.
Turns out there is zero overlap between the Top 10 Names on the great parenting resource Nameberry and the U.S. Government’s official SSA list — for either girls or boys. More
While we all assumed that Kris Jenner’s kontract with Satan required her to name the spawn of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West with some kind of fancy-schmancy K-name, we’re now hearing word that that particular naming rumor may be untrue. While we’re still waiting for Satan’s rep to confirm this statement, we’ll go ahead and assume that he’s given the Kardashian family permission to choose a non-K name. Why? I don’t know. I’m sure the trade-off for that deal will involve some kind of new television series that I don’t even want to think about. Just know it will involve all the Kardashian grandbabies competing on some kind of game show hosted by Ryan Seacrest. More
