Welcome!

Welcome to The Baby Name Buff (TBNB)! This blog is for all the baby name lovers out there. More specifically, this blog is devoted to discussing truly unique baby names, meaning that almost all the baby names on this site are names that have not been in the top 1,000 names in the U.S. Social Security name database any time between 1900 and the present. So, if you’re looking for that one-of-a-kind name for your little one, or even if you’re not expecting but just love discussing unique baby names, you’ve come to the right place.

Each week, I’ll post a new TBNB edition, taking my inspiration from a variety of sources, including music, movies, TV, nature, and more. Stay tuned for the first edition, coming soon!

“I read in a book once that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but I’ve never been able to believe it. I don’t believe a rose WOULD be as nice if it was called a thistle or a skunk cabbage.”  — Anne Shirley, L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables

Hi, I'm Vickie. I'm a baby name enthusiast, and I'm excited to share and discuss with others the unique baby names I find. Besides talking and writing about baby names all day long, I also enjoy spending time with family, hiking, astronomy, reading (mostly science fiction and dystopias), and all things Star Trek. (Are you noticing a theme?) I currently live in Champaign, IL with my husband, Kyle, and my son, Felix.
