Thank You!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

I’m very thankful this year for every person who visits this site. There are lots of places to hang out on the internet, and I appreciate all the people who choose to hang out here as opposed to elsewhere.

I’m also very thankful to have some generous patrons — Clare, Christa, Emilia, and Aléna — who help me keep this site up and running by supporting me on Patreon. You guys are the best. :)

For those of you celebrating American Thanksgiving today, I hope the food is delish — dessert especially. ;)

And for anyone interested in supporting this site (via Patreon, for instance) just click one of those links…

Thank You to My Lovely Patrons!

Thank you to those of you who generously support Nancy’s Baby Names via Patreon!

Special thanks to four patrons in particular: Clare, Christa, Emilia, and Aléna.

If you’re interested in becoming a patron, just click that link. I’ve got two Patreon tiers ($1 and $3) set up, but you can adjust the monthly support level to whatever you prefer. Any amount would be helpful and much appreciated. :)

Thank You, Patrons!

I just wanted to give a quick, virtual high-five to four of my wonderful patrons: Aléna, Christa, Clare, and Emilia. Thank you so much for your support!

Here are some of the cool things these guys are working on…

If you’d like to become a patron as well, please click that link. The tier levels are set to $1 and $3 per month, but you can adjust the amount to whatever you prefer.

Right now, the money I receive from Patreon (along with what I earn from Google AdSense) covers things like hosting and general upkeep. When I finally get around to making improvements/additions to the site, though, the money will be redirected toward activities like building a name database and creating some unique name-finding tools.

P.S. Did you know that Patron is a baby name? I’m thinking this has a lot to do with Patrón Tequila. ;) In Spanish, patrón means “boss.” (Boss is also a name, btw.)

Patron Shout-Outs!
