Happy 3rd Birthday to Nameberry!
You know you’ve been around a while when you forget your birthday. The third anniversary of Nameberry’s launch, earlier in October, came and went without any of us realizing it. But now that we have, we want to pause and take stock of how far we’ve come with the help of all you wonderful berries over the past three years:
Number of visitors: Nearly 12 million
Number of page views: Almost 90 million
Number of countries populated by berries: All of them. Even you, Chad!
Most-read blog: Baby Names 2011: The Hottest Trends, with nearly a million readers.
Our favorite blogs: Probably the two most personal ones, in which we each explain the origins of our name obsessions: Confessions of a Secret Name Nerd and Call me Laila…no, Ruth…no Linda: The story of how I got hooked on names.
Most popular girls’ name: Charlotte
Most popular unisex name: Harper
Most divisive subject on Nameberry: Unisex names
Most confusing element of our own name: Is it Nameberry or nameberry? We can never decide.
Other names we considered for the site: Denamer, Namesifter, Nameniks and Rumpelstiltskinner, along with approximately 819 other ideas, though now we can’t imagine it being anything but Nameberry. Except maybe nameberry.
Most popular list: Nicknames for Girls. For reasons known only to Google.
Search term that brings the most visitors to Nameberry: Nameberry! Second place goes to “nicknames for girls.”
Weird search terms that have brought some people to Nameberry: Aggressive male human names, ancient aquarius nicknames, and “Are names Alice and Elias too similar?” The answer to that, by the way, is yes.
Our hopes for the year ahead: Love, peace, and happiness for all our wonderful berries. And that next year at this time, there are twice as many of you! xxx

Hey everybody, thanks so much! The best surprise of doing this site has been all the wonderful people here who’ve turned it into something that reaches far beyond us. The Secret Name Nerd link works now, btw…

Congrats! I stumbled on your son after my first two sons were born, 2007 and 2009….as I was rethinking my second son’s name spelling (Rhys versus Reece). We went with Rhys after all my research and interests on your site! I knew it would be so much more fun talking names for my third, born in 2011, with my berry friends! It actually really added so much to my pregnancy! Thanks!!
