Finding Baby Names Online
If you would rather go the high-tech route and want to search online, your library can help as well. While many people can easily search online, there are two benefits to going to the library to do your search. First, librarians are trained to do research so they can help you quickly identify websites that meet your criteria – and exclude sites that contain outdated or incorrect information. Secondly, if you do not have Internet access, you can get online at your local library.
Another unusual source of baby names is the website of the US Social Security Administration. The Baby Names page not only lists baby names, it also ranks them in order of popularity. Another feature of the website is that it allows searching to see which names were the most popular in a particular year.
