evolved from an old Geocities website (remember those?). I had always been interested in names and what they meant so when I set out to build a website, I decided what could be a better subject than what I had interest in. When site became so popular it sort of outgrew Geocities, which is when the domain name,, was purchased. All of the files and information from the initial site was moved over to the new domain and hosting account. was also redesigned at that time and has been through many different redesigns in the past.

Information for the names, origins and meanings, is that which I had collected over the years, prior to the original site. There may be, and likely are in many cases, other meanings and origins of the names listed on the website. We do not take any responsibility for any misinformation. is solely for entertainment purposes. We are not name experts and the information presented is correct to the best of our knowledge. It is up to you, the user, to determine and research names further. is primarily for ideas to start with.

We sincerely hope you enjoy the site and all of the entertainment it will provide you and your family.
