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...

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...

Despite what many of today’s parents seem to think, a child’s name should not be seen as an opportunity to express ones own personality at what may end up being the child’s expense. In fact, a name should be approached as what it really is: the single greatest gift you will ever give your child, a gift that will be with them from when they first open their eyes in the cradle to when they’re haunti...

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...

If you’re expecting a baby in the next little while, prepare to make all the parents you know jealous by snapping up this future classic that debuted yesterday evening. Sturgyl has truly hit the ground running, netting itself over 1,500 boy children globally in the first 24 hours alone – a feat unseen since Brayden dropped in the fall of ‘95. Why all the attention? It’s not hard to see. The refres...

By simply de-voicing the affricates that bookend the active vowels of the name George, the folks at Mowden Flannery Naming produced a name that is quite astonishing: Tchortch. The name surprises the listener by sounding oddly more complex than George despite being phonetically simpler. Perhaps this aural illusion is due to Tchortch’s impressive consonant-to-vowel ratio, which positively dwarf’s th...

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...

This name has been wallowing in the doldrums for years, despite its beauty. Sadly, the name’s undeniable similarity to a popular diarrhea medicine is the sole reason for its lack of popularity. That such a fantastic name could be discounted for something so petty is extremely unfortunate, but that’s all about to change. News has just broken that notable thespian powercouple, Benedict Cumberbatch a...

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...

‘Life is a wound that can only be healed by death.’ So goes the grim refrain that apparently led to the creation of this name in the late 90s. Too pessimistic for some, this variation on the name Wanda has nevertheless enjoyed substantial popularity in the last few years, particularly amongst fans of Trent Reznor, who chose this name for his baby girl in 2013. We here at World’s Best Baby Names te...

"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!"
