Welcome to childrens names!

The subject of what to call your new baby often proves to be a uniquely difficult discussion for many parents "to be". This site will hopefully help you with that decision by providing a comprehensive database to let you discover unique and unusual baby names from around the world, and also learn more about your own name.

If you are you pregnant, thinking about a baby's name or even just curious about the meaning of your own name? This site is dedicated to helping you decide on names for your new or even unborn baby. The site concentrates on a wide variety of names from the traditional to the more unusual. This can include traditional names based on country such as Scottish Boy Names, Scottish Girl Names, Irish Boy Names, Irish Girl Names, to select just a few of the wide number of names across the site. The site is fully searchable and if you are undecided on what ethnic origin you can search alphabetically. The site also has a sitemap but this isn't really recommended for effective searching for baby names.

The site also has a few names from more exotic locations, religions and ethnic groups (although I suppose how exotic depends on where you come from just now!). If you are looking for something perhaps a little different you could try Hawaiian, Hebrew or Arabic baby girl and boy names.Examples of these are: Hawaiian (Hawaii) Girls names, Hebrew Girls Names and Greek (Greece) Girls names.

Alternatively you may simply be looking for popular baby names from various countries. Examples you will find are those such as the most popular baby names in the United States for the year 2012 or the most popular male and female baby names from the United Kingdom (Great Britain) from 2010 although previous years are also available on site. An increasing search term landing on the site has also prompted popular italian names to have their own pages and these can be found here.
