Baby Names - Parents Kissing Baby Picture
Oh Baby! Names Welcome Sign

OhBabyNames was built on the premise that there really isn't one super detailed baby naming website on the Internet today. Parents shouldn't have to sift through 40,000 options when considering what to name their baby. The amount of names out there is overwhelming but thin on detail. Our goal is to provide all of that interesting detail on every aspect of commonly used names.

Giving a baby boy the name of his grandfather or favorite uncle is a sweet and very wide-spread practice in American families. Often, however, parents look for a variation of the older family name, perhaps to give the baby a unique identity or possibly because grandpa’s name is a little out-of-date.
