I got 40,001 baby names while I was expecting ds. Although its very big and you'll probably count out most of the names it has a really wide variation.

that sounds good -did you actually find ds name from there?

Baby Centre website has lots and lots and lots of names with meanings etc - and it's free!!!

I liked the new age baby name book for names that are a bit different.

I find Baby Name Wizard's NameVoyager fascinating.

thanks all - that website is really intriguing swampster. Amazing how stuff comes in/out of fashion.

American, of course. Both my DSs' names peaked in their birth years - wonder if I would have named them differently had I known. Doubt it.

babynamesworld will send you 3 suggestions every day by email - they've got LOADS of names from lots of different origins

bounty website has a good thing where you can put in what names you like and it will tell you how many times its been registered etc this year
