Baby Names and Meanings

Children often feel special if their name represents a good character trait. When thinking about a baby name, please note that children are likely to be teased at some point in their childhood because of a name's meaning.

When selecting a middle name, be sure to say it out loud to make sure it goes with the first.

It is best to think of rhyming names that might be embarrassing as well. This can be just as important as a name's meaning.

We've put together several lists of baby names organized by origin and then by meaning to help you select the perfect name for your precious baby.
