We are thrilled to announce the new, redesigned, and much improved Nameberry, introducing a host of new features now and over the days and weeks to come.
Designed by the fabulous Tedworth & Oscar, aka the British brother team Joe and Jake Baggaley, the new Nameberry is completely responsive, created to look as beautiful and work as seamlessly on your iPhone as it does on your big-screen desktop.
Besides its new mobile capabilities, other changes you’ll notice on Nameberry right away:
— An updated, more sophisticated palette, expanding on our standard pink-and-blue with a range of pastels keyed to different functions.
— Expanded list pages, giving you a snippet of information on all the lists in a category or a bit about every name in the list. Plus the option to view lists old-school, as just a complete array of linked names.
— Simplified name ratings, letting you vote yay, nay, or meh for every name.
A year ago this week, nameberry was born. The site had been months (about nine, actually) in the making, and so the launch felt like a culmination. But like most new parents, we quickly saw that it was only the beginning. Here, an inside look at nameberry’s first year.
We’ve had one million unique visitors look at a total of 14 million pages, a number that would have staggered us a year ago and thrills us now. And 35,000 people have visited nameberry more than 200 times (you know who you are).
Our visitors have come from 216 countries – only Chad, Central African Republic, Western Sahara and Serbia and Montenegro have missed out – and speak 140 languages. While the United States boasts the lion’s share of visitors, 100,000 have each come from Canada and the United Kingdom and 75,000 from Australia.
