Baby Names

The Baby Name Network introduces itself this way:
Are you an expectant parent? Just thinking about having a baby? A proud grandparent? Or just wondering what the origin of your name is? We offer an ever-growing database of baby names along with their meanings, origins, famous namesakes, and a gauge of how popular each name is. Baby names of all kinds: popular, unusual, ethnic, religious, unique, and many more. We make it easy for you to browse, search, and surf from baby name to baby name - until you find that perfect name for your new baby.
You can look for names several ways including by origin. For example, here is the list of Japanese baby names. Be warned that the list is sadly incomplete and the translations are laughably inaccurate. The site seems not to have been updated recently; the front page features the "Most Popular Baby Names of 2003." But all in all, it's not a bad place to start.

Why, you ask, am I suddenly interested in baby names? I'll give you three guesses. :)
