Welcome to Namerology! My name is Laura Wattenberg. I’m the author of the Baby Name Wizard books and the original founder of BabyNameWizard.com. I’ve spent 18 years studying names and name trends, and I’ve learned that it’s a subject that can never run dry. That’s because names are part of everything humans do, and a window onto our world.
I hope you’ll come by Namerology often to read and respond to an article, browse our atlas of popular names around the world, and play with a database of popularity of American and English names. Expect some exciting new tools ahead, too.
