Baby Boy Names Outside the Top 1000 Most Popular

When choosing a baby name there are so many considerations to take into factor – what sounds do you like? Do you want a long name or short? Are you hoping for a deep meaning or just a beautiful phonetic ring to the name? And, some people are looking for a name that feels one of a kind. In that case, I usually recommend staying away from any name that’s been in the top 50 in the past decade, but you can take that a step further and choose a boy’s name that doesn’t even grace the top 1000.

Sweet Girl Names Ranked Beyond the Top 1000

Every year on Mother’s Day Weekend the Social Security Administration releases the top 1000 most popular baby names from the year before. To me, that weekend may as well be my birthday Christmas, and my super bowl all wrapped up in one. My greatest wish, though, was that they would make the data beyond the top 1000 more accessible.

You’ll be giving unique presents, saving money, and helping to reduce the waste that comes with the holiday season. With that said: not all thrift finds are equal. If you’re shopping for somebody who isn’t into thrifting or “doesn’t get it” they could be put off by the idea of a second hand gift.  With that in mind, I try to keep a few rules in mind if I’m thrifting for a gift for a less thrifty (but very lovely!) recipient.  In years past, I’ve…

How to Become a Baby Name Consultant

Something weird happened about a year ago, and I became a baby name consultant. A couple of months before becoming a name consultant, I had no clue that such a job even existed. I had been creating content on TikTok leading up to my wedding, and one day posted outside my niche about my interest in baby names. And after spending months creating wedding planning content with little success, that video blew my account up. At that time, I’d expected TikTok to be a hobby I abandoned after my wedding, but the realization that there were so many other people…
