Shakespeare once asked, “What is in a name?” Well, our mission at Oh Baby! Names is simple: to answer that question as comprehensively as we can! Names are never given accidentally; they are carefully chosen and bestowed according to the rules that reflect fundamental features of the society and culture concerned. There are so many elements to names and the naming process in general. It’s a fascinating study on so many levels: etymology, linguistics, cultures, trends, religion, literary and pop-culture influences, and so much more. Your name not only speaks loudly about YOU and provides one of the very first impressions you give out into the world, but it also reveals the values and ideals of your parents and your society at large.
We are a motley-crew of people who are passionate about the rituals around naming, and we are committed to the dissemination of accurate information to our users through our own rigorous research – in the hopes that we may play some small part in helping you through the process of naming your child. Our goal is to have the most comprehensive content for names on the Internet contained within the best website.
