    Hi, I’m McKenzie. I don’t remember what my username was on PC, but back in the day of the old BNW, I was Ketchup/McK. Mneme is a play on my username on another forum, LadyNimue. It’s very long and involved, but if you want to hear about the connection, I would happy to go all nerdy about it.
    I have two little boys, ages 7 and 3, and am expecting a new arrival in May 2014 :)

    WHAT?? Where have I been?! CONGRATULATIONS, McKenzie!!!! Sooooooo awesome. I am so happy for you.

    I am so glad to see so many of you here. One thing that I would like to say is…you don’t have to absolutely be an over-the-top name nerd to be here. We have a cool General Chat forum where ANYTHING goes. As a community…we’ve been together for 7 years, and some even longer than that…so we all have stuff that has nothing to do with names to talk about.

    NEXT, if you don’t have kids or babies don’t feel WEIRD about loving NAMES. I am probably one of the biggest name fanatics in the country and I’ve never named any kids of my own. So what! Names are an incredibly interesting subject and their appeal is universal because everyone on Earth has named someone or something…and if they haven’t, they have a name themselves! Everyone wonders about their name, or what lead their parents to choose it, etc. Then…beyond as in…what does it mean? Where did it come from? Does anyone else like my name? To perhaps wishing that your name was something else or LOVING your own name. I’m fortunate to have had a mom who fed my hunger for knowledge about names. I didn’t think twice about reading a baby name book in study hall in high school, even though people thought I was weird. So what? Look at where my interest got me! I love being able to talk about this subject with anyone…anywhere! So go on with yourselves!

    LAST: If you’re expecting, there is no better company to be in than with Name Nerds and other ladies who are expecting…so you are in the right place. Hopefully we can all help each other, and maybe come up with ideas that are fresh for each other!

    Looking forward to using the heck out of this shiny, new website with you all!

    Thank you, Anabel. I’ve been keeping it pretty top secret, so it’s not your fault you didn’t know :)

    Anyhow, I like the return to a more standard format here, so hopefully BNW will boom again… Can’t help but long for the old days, lol

    Congrats, McKenzie!! Did you post much on PC in the past 2 years or so? Just trying to figure out if I knew you over there!

    And Anabel, I appreciate that. I had baby fever for a while before we were able to TTC the last time and it seemed like on some of the baby name message boards, people acted like you were weird/ridiculous if you wanted name advice/posted name polls before you were actually pregnant. Meanies. ;) I was just looking in the wrong place! And I love that on here, I can do name polls for my theoretical future baby even though we may or may not be able to TTC again, and no one says anything. ;)

    Kendra, OMGoodness, your girls are adorable! I think you’ve had the same avatar on PC since before Emma was born–and I swear, they’ve gotten doubly as cute in the past two years. :)

    Hi everyone, I’m Amanda. I was peachy93 on PC aaaand here I am again. Lol.
    I’ve been a member since 2010 I think. It may have been 2009, I can’t remember.
    I’m currently in college and have no plans of having kids anytime soon (my workload wouldn’t allow that ;D among other things hahahaha).
    I’ve always loved names though and that’s why I’m here! :)

    TwoSapphires, I really like your avatar. I remember I used to think your boys were born in September, since Sapphire is the birthstone….but it all makes sense when you see that ring. :-)

    ….and all of a sudden we’ve got smilies! Woot!

    Hi, I’m Claire. I was also on PC (of course, haileyukulele, just wanted a new username) and I really like the new website! It’s a lot cleaner of a layout and I hope there won’t be so many glitches. I don’t have children yet nor do I want them anytime soon, although someday, I hope. I’m in my junior year of college and I’ve been a name-lover since I was about nine. Yes, a lifer.

    Welcome! I don’t want to jinx anything, but I think we’ll have a lot less ”glitchiness” here, because the software we’re using has a great track record. Iam so glad!

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Jennifer. I am 22 years old and just found out my fiance and I are expecting our first child! I am in college right now for Early Childhood Education and will be graduating in June 2014. I also work as a substitute teacher’s assistant from preschool-middle school grades. I haven’t been to see my doctor yet, but I think I’m due in May or June. Does anyone have any advice for me for my first pregnancy?

    Hey y’all. I’m Elizabeth. I was lizzietee924 over on PC. I posted on there for years under a variety of names. I have been a name nerd since I can remember. It was an odd little hobby I kept to myself. Then one day I ventured online and came across the PC forums and to my shock discovered there were other name nerds out there just like me! I am engaged to be married in August 2014. We don’t have any children and don’t plan to have children for a couple of years.

    I came here from parentsconnect. I definitely like the features and look of the new site but I’m a little annoyed that my extensive baby names list from parentsconnect is now gone… :(

    Welcome, everybody!
    Congrats, Jennifer!
    And thanks, Anabel. I can’t believe it wasn’t till now that it occurred to me to use my ring picture as my avatar. ;)

    Thank you, Ash! I appreciate it. I hope you’re able to get into what you really want to do. Have you seen a career counselor? If you get a good one, it can be very helpful.

    Kendra, I hope you two are able to get one the same page about that; I know how hard it can be otherwise!

    smb92, please do open up and chat elsewhere! :) I’m sure we’d all love to get to know you better!

    Hello, I am Sara. I think I was Alliemarie07 on PC although I didn’t post much. I JUST found out today we are pregnant!!! Should be due June 17th I believe! This will be my fourth child, first with my husband. I’m very excited about picking/obsessing over a name! LOL I have 1 girl and 2 boys and don’t have a preference for this one, although I have a tough time picking boy names.
