    I choose NB because I loved the people and their responses here. I never posted anywhere else because the communities weren't as welcoming, insightful and generous with their personal thoughts. (Mostly they just came across as belligerent and rude).

    I had wanted to join a name forum for a while but they all seemed geared solely towards parents. I found one that wasn't, but when I lurked for a while (to get a feel for it), I decided it wasn't for me.

    Anyhow, I owned a couple of Pam and Linda's books, and about this time last year I decided to Google to see if there were any newer books available. I put Pam and Linda's names into Google, and Nameberry was the top link, so I lurked for a while and loved it, so I joined.

    While lurking, Nameberry instantly struck me as a perfect mix of parents, expectant parents and non-parent name lovers, all working together in harmony. And I also loved the fact that people of all ages mix here, and opinions are respected, regardless of age.

    This probably sounds really cheesy, but if I'm honest, Nameberry kinda feels like a home I'm really happy in, and have no plans to move away from!

    I used to frequent Yahoo Answers, but the only feedback I ever got was along the lines of "ewwWWW!" or "thats a old person name!" or "ur kids r going 2 hate u 5eva." I came across Nameberry by accident and was attracted to the intelligent, insightful community of people who knew what they were talking about and shared my taste in names (or had similar tastes). I also appreciate the general friendliness of the members of this site and our ability to use proper spelling and grammar.

    There are kindred spirits here! Most people seem to like the types of names I like. People are (mostly) very nice. Responses are articulate and well thought-out. It's a community.

    I tried everything... Yahoo answers, babynames.com, even really obscure blogs. I can't recall how I stumbled upon Nameberry, but I've been hooked ever since. It's nice because the design of the site is aesthetically pleasing and the expertise of the bloggers. No 10 year old trolls that I've seen. Even the teen berries are respectful and give great advice!!
