05/31/2011

Babynology, the Leading web portal on the Internet for baby names from all over the world which is located on the worldwide web at www.Babynology.com, has launched its latest channel called Famous Baby Names which provides many baby naming ideas and suggestions for baby boy names and baby girl names that are derived from the names of celebrities, entertainers and other famous personalities.

Online PR News – 31-May-2011 – – The Internet’s #1 baby names web portal with over 500,000 searchable baby names and their origins, encompassing all major cultures and ethnic groups, has launched a new baby boy names and baby girl names channel on their web portal which features famous baby names that are derived from popular culture and contemporary celebrity naming trends.

Depending on the boys’ names and girls’ names, the website also provides additional details such as background, possible origin and usage patterns.

“The convention of naming our little babies after famous people whom we adore and adulate dates back many centuries and often bears testimony to the popularity of entertainers, leaders and emperors regardless of their race or ethnic origin,” says Preeti Jeswal, CEO and site manager for www.babynology.com. “The thesaurus of famous baby names we have compiled is sure to find at least one answer to the many questions parents have—a baby name,” she adds.

Baby Names and Celebrity Fanfare

The data base of popular baby names can be search using several parameters. Parents can search either by boys famous names or girls famous names. They can also specify the letter with which the names should start. Since the baby names portal commands a worldwide audience, parents can narrow down their search further by selecting any one of 82 ethnic or regional categories such as American baby names or Japanese baby names that are famous. The flexibility of the user-friendly search interface makes it possible to conduct multiple searches for popular baby boy names and popular baby girl names in succession until such a time that parents, siblings and other well-wishers have found their “jewel of a baby name.”

As an inherent part of its overall mandate to provide parents with a dynamic platform for engagement, Babynology.com also features an ongoing photo contest in which parents are encouraged to submit their baby’s pictures which are chosen by a team of experienced parenting experts and showcased on the website.

Baby Names from Past to Present

Founded a decade ago, Babynology started out both as a debutant and a trail blazer in the baby naming space on the Internet. It was the first website not simply to list baby boy names and baby girl names but also to provide, through a robust search solution, multiple layers of information regarding the names of babies such as its history, ethnic origin, pronunciation and even, in a few cases, a sampling of folk lore which may have accompanied the baby name being considered. Today, the Babynology baby names repository has emerged as a leader in the baby names category as a rich and complete online resource not just for baby boy names and baby girl names but also for insights into parenting, gifting, baby care and baby health tips. The names for babies have been meticulously divided into categories such as unique baby names, cute baby names, unusual baby names, uncommon baby names, god names, color names and bad names which refer to those names with either a covert or overt negative connotation.

Celebrity Worship through the Ages

According to a survey conducted recently in the United Kingdom, 40% of parents who responded to the survey said that their first priority in selecting a name for their baby was how the name sounds. 38% said they turned to family tradition to help them with the selection process. 10% said they used the name of a famous celebrity to choose the name for their baby. As a society which places great emphasis on success as a measure of achievement, we continue to remain star-struck regardless of our cultural roots. We like to read about them, follow their social and private lives on page 3 and even sign up as Twitter followers just in case we happen to be techno-savvy. We not only set up Google Alerts about them but also fantasize about meeting with them and being with them occasionally. Babynology.com provides parents with the perfect platform to choose from a carefully screened list of famous baby names that have been selected for their public appeal, recognition and affinity with celebrities.
