Nancy’s Baby Names, created in early 2006, was one of the very first baby name blogs online.
The resident baby name blogger is me, Nancy Man. Here I am a couple of years ago, pretty close to falling into the Grand Canyon:
I’m a U.S.-based writer. My name-musings have been republished at and linked-to from various places (The Chicago Tribune, the U.S. Census Bureau, New York Magazine, Wikipedia, Mental Floss, Woman’s Day, Huffington Post, Nameberry.com, Vice.com, The Week, RocketNews24, BabyNames.com, GlobalPost, TV Tropes, SmashingLists, Babble.com, etcetera). I’ve also written about other topics for publications not owned by me, but I won’t bore you with that list.
My favorite thing about of baby name blogging? Learning new things about history/society through the lens of names. With this in mind, here are some of my favorite posts: Bobbyetta, Chaffee, Dorie, Elmer Ellsworth, Emancipation Proclamation, Fifinella, Halley, Iuma, Jesse Roper, Kasara, Laxative, Leneve, Malaeska, Monda, Nira, Rockne, Saford, Seroba, Sharlie, Silver, Trilby, Tuesdee, Zeppelina.
