Celebrating ten years of the wonderful community YOU helped to create
When Nameberry first started life a decade ago, little did anyone know that it would soon grow to become the biggest (and best, natch) baby name website in the world. Now with nearly 70,000 names in our extensive database — many of them suggested by our very own knowledgeable members — and new lists, articles and discussions created every day, it’s a truly exhilarating project to be a part of.
So what’s the secret to Nameberry’s success? Well, aside from our hard work and winning personality, we firmly believe that a key reason is… YOU!

Flower names for babies are very popular all over the world. Naming your baby after one of the most beautiful things in nature is a lovely thing. Here are some French names inspired by flowers. Some of them may surprise you, especially in the boy’s section!
Fleur. Let’s start with the most obvious name on this list. The French word for flower has been commonly used as a name since the 70s. This feminine, free-spirited name sounds both pretty and elegant; its meaning and sweet simplicity are what makes it so appealing.
Anémone is a floral name that relates to the ancient Greek myth of the love story of Aphrodite and Adonis, in which the goddess transforms her wounded lover’s blood into a flower, the crimson anemone, whose delicate blooms are blown open by the wind, accounting for its other name, windflower. With their watercolor-like petals, anemones are one of the daintiest spring flowers and would make a charming name for a baby girl.
This week’s news includes boys with gemstone names, girls named after a car, sweet British nicknames, and lot of men named Paul.
