[10-Dec-2014] We added stats about countries from which a names has been visited. Sometimes this may give you hints about origins of names.
Now you have some rhymes for each name, in case you want to write poems.

[11-Nov-2013] The site is no longer using MediaWiki.
This decision was taken mainly because of the large number of spammers and the very small number of editors.
With this update, many other names have been added, so the total number now exceeds 1 300 000 unique names.
Also, with each name, when possible, Namespedia has: meaning of name, gender, usage as given name, usage as family name, anagrams, mispells, common names, domain name availability, famous people and faces of people.
