Top 100 Baby Names Lists
The Top 100 Baby Names Lists are compiled at the end of every complete year by the Social Security Administration in America and the UK Government, so we can only detail the top 100 names for 2006 in the year 2007 as the information is not fully compiled until the end of each current year. It's interesting to see which names have made the Top 100 Baby Names Lists for 2006. How does the most recent Top 100 Baby Names Lists compare with your choices? What influenced the content of the Top 100 Baby Names Lists for 2006? And what will influence the Top 100 Baby Names Lists for 2007, 2008 and 2009? Who were the most popular celebrities for the year? Movie Stars? Pop Stars? Models? Celebrities? They always influence the Top 100 Baby Names Lists to some degree!

Announce the birth of your newborn baby boy or baby girl to everyone on the Internet and send automatic e-mails with the great news to your friends and family - it's the fastest way to spread the word!

Family Search ?
Yes, we also have a section on conducting a Family Search - Genealogy! Meanings and origins of First, Middle and Surnames! Genealogy has become a very popular pastime with the advent of the Internet which has made a World wide search to document a family tree much easier. We have a whole section dedicated to the subject of Family Names. This important section of the website features the subject of Genealogy which includes a helpful section on how to make a start on a Family Search ! The interest in tracing family roots has also brought about a great interest in naming babies which reminds people of the ' Old ' Country. A really interesting fact is that 80% of Americans can trace their roots to the U.K. and Census records from the UK can now be accessed online, making the process of tracing family histories much easier.

A boy called Shirley? A Pensioner called Zowie?
Choosing a suitable baby boy name or baby girl name from the vast selection that are available is a serious task. One of the cute, exotic or cool baby boy names or baby girl names may be great for a tiny baby. But would it have the same effect when the baby boy or girl grows into a schoolchild, a teenager, a young adult, a middle aged person and eventually a pensioner? Will the boy or girl, who has now become older, then be happy with your choice of name ? School kids can be merciless to each other and make a bee-line for anything out of the ordinary, unfortunately this includes boy or girl names which are unsuitable for older children. Remember - 'A Name isn't just for a Birth Day - it's for life'! The images at the top of the page reflect the different life stages that a boy or girl can travel through - from a pram to a bike to a car and beyond!

Pitfalls (Warren Peece or War and Peace!)
We hope to make you aware of any possible pitfalls in determining your full baby's name. No visitor to this site will make the mistake of selecting the like of Helen Hywater (Hell and High water), Tom Katz or Diane Decay ( Die and Decay). Yes, they are all real names!. We also look at popular baby names - those that can be described as ' faddish ' names. Ideas for the unusual boy names or unusual baby girl names come into fashion but these types of names can just as quickly go out of fashion! Fashionable types of baby names are chosen because they are unusual, but they then become a trend. As soon as the trend is identified people move away from using them! These fashionable, or faddish, types of baby names can ' date ' a person.
