How to use the tool:
  1. Start by filtering the first drop-down box. You can search by name, letter of the alphabet, meaning, or by the most popular names in a given year.
  2. If you already have a name in mind, simply search by Name, type in the name, and tap the magnifying glass to see the origin, meaning, and traditional gender associated with the name which is shown by either a blue baby (boy) or a pink baby (girl).
  3. If you're in the exploring phase, try searching by your preferred letter of the alphabet and filtering by gender. You'll then be able to see the origin of the name in the results list.
  4. Try searching by meaning. You can type in a word or phrase to find a unique baby name.
