D’Krunk /dəkrə́ŋk/ (female)

Completely secular in origin, this new-era classic nevertheless carries a dash of Jesus’s holy pluck without letting this typically very potent flavour take over completely. But this is not the only reason Queejus has been making a substantial splash in the oft-stagnant waters of the contemporary baby-naming industry. The name’s unique structure – a tight, yet airy, pair of syllables following an...

This très nouveau blend of Jerome and Ruth makes you wonder why someone didn’t think of combining these two names years ago. Best not to linger on irrelevant questions like that, however, or you might be late to the Jeruth party that has been sweeping the upper midwest over the past few months. Aside from its strikingly mature two-syllable structure, this name also features a glorious unisexuality...

Never have two names been more aptly combined than in this elegant marriage of Rhonda and Randle. Already sharing many attributes prior to their union, the two component names are different in exactly the right ways to compliment each other beautifully and create a whole greater than its parts. If this wasn’t enough, the associated genders of these two components effectively offset each other, lea...

First impressions aren’t this name’s strong suit, often sounding like repetitive gibberish the first 50 to 100 times a listener hears it. Studies have shown, however, that once this one clicks for people — as it inevitably does with continued exposure — it clicks with an absolute vengeance. This scientifically proven fact (documentation can be found at means that fans of the long...

Nonsensical combinations of English nouns tend to show poorly in the global name market, and many would argue the same should be true of Pandabags. Remarkably, it is not. In fact, Pandabags’ popularity has been growing at an accelerating rate since its 2001 release. At least part of this popularity is due to the name’s flawlessly unisex construction, but that alone can’t account for these numbers....

To name a child God would be pompous and tacky. Naming a child Gahhd, on the other hand, is the height of culture and good taste. While divine power still resonates through the remarkable depths of this lone syllable, the inclusion of “ahh” as the very core of the name also brings an undeniable aura of casual relief. Given this name’s rising popularity and the fact that it is perfect for a boy or...

This relatively new name (first coined in July of 2013) has two fairly obvious influences, combining Lesley’s jovial naïveté with a leopard’s mystique, grace and latent ferocity. What isn’t so obvious is just how different this name can sound depending on whether it is applied to a boy or a girl. Unlike names like Dawn/Don or Erin/Aaron, Lesleopard doesn’t require an alteration of spelling to enha...

This name isn’t for everyone, but it certainly should be. Not only is it beautifully unisex, it also has more style and panache than any sane person could ask for. By not stooping to more instinctual spellings like ‘vanes’ or ‘vaynes,’ this name errs on the side of classy and ensures that no one will hear it without thinking of the human circulatory system. This, perhaps, is the reason some people...

This name was built for the springtime, and while it does carry admittedly strong notes of unpleasant words like ‘suppress’ and ‘fester,’ stronger is the purely aesthetic message of birth and new growth that seems woven into the very fabric of the name. On paper the name is unisex, but in practice most parents who choose it tend to choose it for a boy.

“Seprester enjoyed not just the taste of food,...

"Pam is a family name and when I had our little girl, I thought I'd have to settle on Pamela until I heard Pamples. All the convenience of Pam, none of the ugliness of Pamela. It's perfect!"
