    Where to get info about (baby)names?

    Hello everyone! I'm new here but have been silently reading your words of wishdom for a few weeks - and I'm totally hooked. Really, turned my life to more bright and motivated direction. More about that some other time. :)

    Now, my question is about baby names, my friends' baby is having her christening this weekend and I would like to search some info on her soon-to-be -name. So, do you know any good sites where to search? Like name history, celebrities with the same name - basically ANYTHING about the name... I'm more interested in the historical and cultural view, but really anything goes. The name is quite unusual so there's not much at the library...

    Hiya -

    There are defintely some cool websites like that out there. I remember when I was pregnant 4 years ago, I found all kinds of ones where you could find ethnic ones, and they['d give you history, and tell you about famous people with the name, and even pronounce it for you!

    Of course I can't think of what they were called, but I'll try and find one or two...

    This isn't an elaborate site but it has some unusual names - hope it helps. And I'm curious, what is the baby's name?

    The name, it's kind of a secret still... it is.... D i s a .....shhhh.... ^-^
    I'm afraid there wasn't a name like that on the page you mentioned, Selah. And cackalackie, that would be exactly what I'm looking for!!! The name is really rare though. Finding information on it seems impossible. So far I have 'a swedish goddess who is also called a different name, not sure why she's been called with this name'. And it is an orchid species also (not sure what word should be used, so I say species...)

    But anyway, I know for sure this name is being used worldwide and even today.
