About Nancy's Baby Names

Hi everyone! Thanks for checking out my Patreon page.

I'm Nancy Man, the blogger behind Nancy's Baby Names. I've been publishing brand-new baby name content five times a week since March of 2006.

I publish name rankings from across the world, themed lists of names, round-ups of name quotes, and memorable name stories.

But my favorite type of post has to be the history post that tells you the fascinating story behind a particular name that saw a sudden change in usage -- typically an increase in usage. I go deep into the U.S. baby name data to unearth gems like Trilby, Korla, Thedy, Iuma, Leneve, Calizza, Qiana, Tierney, and Uldine. I’ve written about hundreds of these names — some for the first time ever on the internet (uncharted territory!) — and I’ve got hundreds more on deck. It's my mission to dig up every single name with a story to tell...and tell it!

Beyond all the writing and research, I'm also planning to enhance the website in various ways (e.g., improve the search, build better graphs, create some cool tools).

Adding these new projects to the mix will require extra time and effort, and that's why I'm on Patreon. By pledging, you'll be helping me continue to write one-of-a-kind name content while I also work on revamping the site.

Thanks so much!
Goals
$9.42 of $100 per month
When I reach $100 per month, I can hire a developer and start creating some cool stuff for the site! I'll begin with some fun tools, including (1) a tool that uses numerology to suggest baby names, and (2) a tool that "combines" a pair of names -- such as  parent names -- to generate baby name suggestions. (These two ideas come straight from my inbox!) I'll also start planning/building a trustworthy name database with definitions, usage data, namesakes, associations, etc.
