Names Searched Right Now:

Tweak That Name!!

Baby Name Ideas

Perhaps you’ve picked out a name you thought was new and different, only to find you were inadvertently following the trends.  Or you’ve been “saving” a favorite name so long that, now that you finally have a chance to use it, it’s no longer as fresh as it was when you picked it.

The solution?  Tweak that name.

With our very first book, Beyond Jennifer & Jason, we began suggesting ways that parents could update, respin, and coolify (yeah, that’s a word we made up) the names they might be considering.

Don’t get us wrong: Many of these names are pretty cool already.  Cool and beautiful and interesting and all those good things.  But still, there’s sometimes a way to ratchet them up a notch or two, and that’s what we’ve done here.
