We love to hear from our users! Please use the appropriate email for your inquiry.
Q: I'd like to submit or correct a name in your database.
A: Thank you! Send it to Names@BabyNames.com. We read all emails and will forward your suggestion to our Names Team. If you're submitting a new name, please include as much information as possible - a link to any sources, meaning, origin/ethnicity.
Q: You've listed [NAME] as a boy's name and I'm a girl! (or vice versa)
A: Sometimes we enter the most common gender of a particular name. For example, we know there are women named Michael, but it's most often used as a boy's name. You are always free to email us and request that we change the gender of a name. We will then research the recent birth trends for that name and see if it makes sense to change it in our database. If a name is listed as gender-neutral, then we've noticed in our name trend data that it's being used for both genders.
Q: You should include the pronunciation of each name!
A: Names are pronounced differently depending on your culture and geographical location. For example, the name Jaime could be pronounced JAY-mee or HI-may. There are individuals with the name Dana that pronounce it both DAN-na and DAY-na, We don't want to imply that there is a "correct" way to pronounce a name.
Q: I'm interested in advertising on BabyNames.com.
A: Awesome! We work with SHEMedia to provide the most comprehensive advertising options available for all budgets. For more information, visit our advertising page.
