Website Spotlight: Baby Names Country

Baby Names Country is a site dedicated to baby names and their meanings and origins.

I thought it was fun to play with the Baby Names Advisor in the right column. I put in my name and my husband's and it recommended Triston for a boy and Brynn for a girl. I also put in my parents' names and it recommended Regina. I'm glad my parents went with Jennifer instead. I feel a lot more like a Jennifer than a Regina.

As you are looking through the list, you can even add names to your personal favorite names list and then print it out to help you to make a decision before the baby arrives. The printed list would be great to add to your baby's memory book, so they can look back one day (and probably laugh) at some of the other names you considered for them.

That is fun!
It recommended Darion and Caitlyn for us. Caitlyn was on my list, but not Ad's.

HA! This is funny, but I would never use it for anything other than humor--it suggested Jovanni as a boy's name. All I can think of when I hear that is Jovan Musk :) Viviana for a girl's name, which is pretty but in NO way suits us.

Funny, I don't see you as a Regina either!

Our suggestions were Nickolas and Sandra. Nickolas is already taken, and I don't think we'd do Sandra.
