We’re expecting our first child, and we’re keeping the gender a surprise.
Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated! I’m due in early January.

How far would you go to show your loyalty to your team?
You’ll buy season tickets, of course. Play the team’s signature song at your wedding reception? Maybe. Name your pet after a star player? Possibly.
But give your kiddo a name that clearly honors the team?
Some of us think about renaming our babies. We may also fantasize about renaming ourselves. And pets — well, yesterday’s Tuffy could easily morph into tomorrow’s Toto.
So why not indulge our name-changing fantasies, if only here on Nameberry? Here’s your chance to rename your entire family — you, your partner if you have one, your children, your parents and/or your siblings, even the goldfish if you’re so inclined. Define who’s included in your family however you wish.
The rules: In the interest of sanity, the new names need to start with the same letter as each person’s old name. And you have to change everyone’s names, even if you think they were perfect to begin with!

There is no play that illustrates the biting wit of Oscar Wilde better than The Importance of Being Earnest. And with a pun on names central to the plot, how could I miss the chance to make it my newest installment of Literary Names, in which I play the game of finding substitutes for the character names?
There are many places to seek out baby-name inspiration: your relatives, a favorite book or movie…maybe even the pages of a celebrity rag.
But it takes an especially brave soul to name your baby after a corporate brand.
And yet, every year lots of U.S. parents do just that. There were 73 baby girls named Lexus in 2014. Twenty-three kids went by Kia, and 20 were christened Audi. And those are just some of the car names.
