Having been through pregnancy 6 times now, I know what it’s like to obsessively search the internet for the perfect baby name. Believe me, I have been there done that many times over. You want to know what the name means, how popular it is, and all the information you can on it. Right? Come on, admit it. You obsess.
A baby’s name is a big deal. You’ve all read my latest drama over our baby boy-to-be’s name. You want their name to be perfect. It’s ok! We all worry about it, and none of us wants to set up our child to be made fun of for the rest of his life.
Recently, I was introduced to BabyNameWizard.com, thanks to RoleMommy.com. I have to tell you, I am hooked. Even though we knew what we were naming this baby if he was a boy (or so we thought), I’ve had a ball playing on the site. It’s totally addicting! There’s just so much you can do on there.
The site was created by Laura Wattenberg, the author of the book The Baby Name Wizard. (By the way, if you’ve purchased every baby name book out there, and still can’t find the perfect name, or if you only want to buy ONE book to find the perfect name, you need to get this book!)
If you’re not a reader, and/or like the idea of an interactive website, then you definitely *must* check out BabyNameWizard.com.
The Name Matchmaker (available with the Expert Tools) has to be one of the coolest features on there. Just give it a few names that you like, and click “Match Names.” It then gives you a fantastic list of names – some of which you may like even better than the ones you put in!
I put in the names Gage, Sawyer, and Walker – 3 of my favorites for this baby boy – and then clicked “Match Names.” Now, I’m in love with many of the names it recommended. While I know this baby’s name will be Gage, we don’t have a middle name yet. I’ve added about 10 names from the list it gave me to our list for potential middle names. I’m going to drive my husband nuts!
The Expert Tools do cost a little extra. It’s $12.95 for one trimester, (which is a fantastic deal!), $29.95 for 9 months, or $34.95 for a full year. They are 100% worth it, though, no matter how long you decide to subscribe.
When you sign up for BabyNameWizard.com, you also get their email newsletter sent to your inbox. It is fabulous. I love the articles, the celebrity names, and everything that’s included. It’s one of the emails I get that I actually look forward to!
I would highly recommend BabyNameWizard.com and the Expert Tools that are available to all my pregnant readers, and especially to those that need help finding the perfect baby name. The tools on this site will definitely help you out, and you will have a blast playing around with all the fun things to do!
