Anyone have any good baby name sites to suggest? I like names that are unique but then again not so unique that people have a really hard time pronouncing it. It seems like I like a lot of old fashioned names but also a lot of new/hip names too.

The Baby Name Wizard (http://www.babynamewizard.com/voyager#) and Nymbler (http://nymbler.com/) are really cool.

Research your family tree for cool old names or visit your local cemetery and find names off the old headstones.

I love baby name wizard! Also, the social security administration will tell you how common a specific name is on a given year.

My MIL bought us a baby name book specifically made for unusual or not as common names. We did find a boy's and girl's name in the book for #3, the boy's name wasn't used so it is up again, now we need another girl's name.
