At this point, it is a well-established truth of the fashion industry that a bandana will add a rakish edge to any outfit. Whether worn on the head or neck, stuffed in a pocket, or tied around an ankle, the result is always an undeniable rebel charm. Bandaniel was conceived on the theory that the same rule might apply to baby names. We’re no name scientists, but I think it’s safe to say that the f...

When one considers the names Baxter and Patrick, one finds very little to improve upon. Simultaneously dynamic and steadfast, both these names are ‘perfect tens’ in the book of any critic who’s worth a damn. Baxtrick does the impossible and outshines perfection. The sharp, almost mechanical texture of its brief two syllables is a phonological triumph, nigh unmatched in the world of male names. If...

As far as we’re concerned, this might be the most beautifully lighthearted name to have dropped in the last five years. Coupling the sassy intelligence of Renée with the dumb cuteness of a fluffy bunny, Bunnée is a near-perfect blend of its ancestor’s sensibilities. Where Renée moves in a steady, straight line, Bunnée bounds with joyful abandon. Where bunnies are prone to almost constant panic, Bu...

If you don’t get hung up on the fact that it sounds like a lisping child trying to say ‘bonanza,’ Banantha is really quite a spectacular name. This novel combination weds a banana’s every-day exoticism with Samantha’s predictability, and the result doesn’t disappoint. You’ll want to get in on the ground floor with this one, because we think it has what it takes to go all the way to the top!


Over the last few years, millions of self-proclaimed “bros” have begun simultaneously aging into parenthood. We in the industry knew this would cause a disturbance in the namescape, though we were admittedly unprepared for just how horrifying this disturbance would be. With names like Brosef, Brobro, Broman and Bro-Steve flooding the market, the entire industry is just a little bit dumber than it...

Add this one to the list of names whose popularity confuses the hell out of us. Despite being an absolute horror show of disgusting sounds and inefficient craftsmanship (using a whopping 12 letters to convey only three syllables), somehow Burglebretch has managed to stay relevant for over 10 years. Having recently risen to be the 45th most popular name on the planet, it’s fair to say that this isn...

Though this name obviously bears great similarity to meal-based words like ‘lunch’ and ‘brunch,’ it somehow manages to steer clear of coming off as just a meal reference. In actual fact, Blunch pays most of its royalties to Blanche. By altering Blanche’s only audible vowel, the overall sound of the new name is drastically tightened. Additionally, the removal of Blanche’s decorative ‘E’ is an inter...

Penelope is still a beautiful name, but if you find it just a little too dated for your taste, Bunnilope might just be the variation you’ve been waiting for. Inherently cute due to the unmistakable bunny reference, the overabundance of class found in the final three syllables of this name ensures that this cuteness doesn’t spoil the soup. Bunnilope made history at the end of 2014 when the holy tri...

Extra! Extra! The menacing functionality of a bandolier meets the deceptively limited freedom of a leash in a new name that experts and amateurs simply can’t get enough of! There’s no denying that three-syllable names are in this season, but few combine form and function with as much artistry as this name does. This is no simple feat, yet Bandoleash makes it look easy. Expecting a baby girl? Put t...

Ask any expert in the field of baby naming and they’ll tell you that Brackery is one of the most solid names out there. A simple retrofit of Zachary, it makes perfect use of the same hyper-stylish three-letter combo that has made names like Brayden and Brandon so popular in the last quarter of the 20th century. Despite all this, the experts also believe this name will never be terribly popular bec...

"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!"
