Great post. It gave me a chuckle. I’ve often wished I could be a naming consultant in real life, and actually a friend recently asked my opinion on her and her husbands’ top secret top three choices for their baby boy, due in March. I was flattered and honored, and–yes–offered my advice for free, of course.

I’m hoping that “Baby Name Therapist” can become a new occupation. Perhaps some courses could be offered like “How to Name A Baby 101″, “How to Offer Constructive Criticism” and “How To Keep Objective in the Face of Modern Kre8tivity”. I’d be first in line because it would truly be my true dream job. I love names and I love helping people so what better job could there be out there for me?

Dream job as far as naming would be either helping name celebrity babies OR help an author OR Disney come up with character names!! That would be so much FUN!

I’d hire ya. @Mischa, I would hire you, too. Actually, what if nameberry had a special panel of ultra-dedicated namers who charged a modest fee? Expectant parent logs into a secure area of the site, fills out a family tree or a survey of inspiration source possibilities (“What is your favorite novel?”, etc.); select group of namers works their magic.

So any suggestion for a name for Isaiah Shepard’s little sister due in late May?
Wife and I like Emily as a middle name but we are all over the place on a first name!
Although Isaiah is a biblical name, we certainly don’t have to go in that direction.
Help! Need some Therapy!
