Baby Names Pedia is an encyclopedia of baby names. We provide a free resource for parents, complete with first name meanings, origins, etymology, pronunciation, namesakes, and other information about names.
We are part of Totallyher family of sites for women.
We are also a member of MTV Network's Parenting Tribe, a group of premier sites catering to the needs of parents.
Our Research on Baby Names
All information on this site has been carefully selected and hand-edited by our resident team of researchers. We have combed through many existing works on first names, including the notable books Dictionary of First Names by Leslie Dunkling and William Gosling, Dictionary of First Names by Adrian Room, and A Dictionary of Traditional First Names by Eric Partridge, veritable internet resources such as the USA Social Security Administration website on baby names, and last but not least, submissions and suggestions from our helpful users. If you wish to participate in our on-going research work on baby names, please feel free to contact us at
