This name — which had its debut over the weekend at Vancouver’s extremely exclusive Festival of Names — is effortlessly light and airy, floating like a cloud of fragrant mist. This makes Gweef the perfect name for a dreamer, particularly an awkward or reclusive one. Critical reception may still be tepid, but anyone with a namer’s palate can see this name for what it is: a slow burner that’s destin...

The delicate autumn beauty of Christa is not entirely lost in this sinewy variation, though it does admittedly take a back seat to the thick, turkey-neck chewiness that is this name’s showcase feature. An instant earworm from the first time one hears it, this is a name that really gets stuck between the teeth. While a vocal minority of critics objects that the name sounds “gross,” we do not share...

Because of its association with angels, Clarence has always been a little bit too squeaky-clean for all but the most conservative parents. The subtle insertion of the word ‘glare’ into the old favourite produces Glarence, a name with  an edge sharp enough to sever Clarence’s angelic wings without cutting too deeply and damaging the foundation on which the name is built. Clearly, this was a need th...

Like Talkleston before it, this name has recently found significant popularity amongst our nation’s most privileged citizens. This is somewhat ironic, given that the name (a poignant combination of the words ‘gentry’ and ‘entropy’) can easily be interpreted as calling for the gradual downfall of the very wealthy. That they embrace this name without understanding the irony is oddly appropriate give...

It may be impossible to see this name as anything but a combination of the words “gore” and “rot.” It is meaty in the worst way imaginable. You can almost smell it, for Christ’s sake. While its creators swear this was not their intention (they claim they were aiming to create a “classier Garrett”), it can be very difficult for new parents to see the latent beauty that dwells quietly behind the dis...

Don’t let the ‘elle’ that appends this name fool you. This is a boy’s name, and quite an imposing one at that. One can easily picture the type of man that might be named Garbonelle: loyal, serious, and physically imposing. This clarity of vision can make it difficult at times to see a young Garbonelle as a child rather than simply a smaller version of the man he will inevitably become. This, in tu...

Rarely does World’s Best Baby Names publish a name that has yet to prove itself in the global arena, but every once in a while something crosses the editorial desk that we just can’t ignore. Such is the case with Glandrea, a name so brand new its eyes haven’t even opened yet. Ostensibly a hybrid of Gladys and Andrea, the name’s connection to glands should not be overlooked. Glands are undeniably e...

Playfully touted as a feminized version of Gerard, this name actually shares no common ancestry with the classic favourite. Nevertheless, fans of the Old Germanic naming tradition that produced Gerard will surely gravitate toward this tasteful bastardization of the style. This name also bears some similarity to the microscopic parasite, Giardia, a feature that marks it as somewhat edgier than its...

It’s hard to believe a name with so many letters has only three syllables, but such is the case with Gunderranth, an unapologetically medieval sounding name that just edged its way into 95th place on the Global Top 100. This name has an thick, earthy beauty that makes you want to live off the land and slaughter your own meat. For this reason, it is perhaps somewhat out of place in our modern world...

For Chad lovers who also wish to pay homage to former President of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, this odd duck of a name may well meet your incredibly specific needs. It should be noted, though, that the niche nature of Gorbachad is literally the only drawback to a name that positively forces its way off the tongue. Bursting with sloppy fervour, this name is almost as unique as Gorbachev’s...
