Visit my new site BabyNames.ch - with three times as many names, more info per name, hitparades from many countries and better search!


Welcome to About Names!

This site is about the 2000 given names most frequently used in the USA for newborns, together with many of their counterparts in use in Europe (an additional 1000 names). It offers information about the names like language, origin, meaning and US popularity, links to other sites with baby name lists, plus the interesting Name Quiz.

As there are already quite a lot of websites about baby names on the Internet, why have a look at this one? Here the names are presented in a special way: They are grouped according to common origin and meaning. You might be really surprised to see the 30 variants, short and pet forms of Maria, or even more variants of John!
