Baby Name Wizard


Publisher: Generation Grownup, LLC

The Baby Name Wizard helps a parent-to-be to find that perfect name. The Find a Name feature allows users to create a list of potential names by length and letter preference, heritage, and popularity. The Namipedia provides the etymologies, suggests popular sibling pairings, and presents reader-generated information and experiences related to particular names. Registration is required to make contributions. Mapping and graphing features, recently upgraded to Adobe Flash technology, pull data from the Social Security Administration to track name popularity by state or by year, back to the 1880s for the country and to the 1960s for states. Whether browsing for inspiration (or entertainment) or researching a short list, this is an informative and entertaining site with lots of visual appeal (Reference & User Services Quarterly, Fall 2010).
