Trust Us to Pick the Perfect Name for Your Baby?


The name you give your child is one of the most important decisions you'll make as a parent. Think about it — your name is part of your identity. It affects how other people see you, how you do business, and how you view yourself. That's a lot of pressure, especially when you're having your first child. Some parents wait until the baby is born; that way, they can see which name feels right. Others have names picked out for decades. Do you need a happy medium? Pick out a few options in advance, but accept that the right name might come to you after the birth. Or, you can take this quiz. Answer a few questions about yourself and your style, and we'll tell you exactly what you should name your baby — no guesswork required!


Quiz WriterJoselyn

Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.

Did you know?

Baby Names Are Trending

Have you ever noticed that lots of your parents' friends are named Mary? That's because parents are susceptible to naming trends. If a baby name is popular, you're more likely to choose it for your own child. Between 1953 and 1961, Mary was an incredibly trendy name for girls. For boys, Michael was the clear winner.

Like any other trend, popular names come and go. In the early 2000s, Emily and Jacob were the most popular options. Then came Isabella, Sophia, and Emma; for boys, parents loved Noah and Liam. In 2020, trending names took a vintage turn — the top boys' names included Oliver, Elijah, and William. Popular girls' names included Ava and Charlotte.

Since trends are cyclical, it's safe to expect that Mary and Michael will come back into fashion within the next few decades. Now, it's your turn: will you go with the flow, or choose a unique name?

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
