Fathom-Designed Website Wins Top Honors from TIME Magazine

TIME Inc. has selected Baby Name Wizard’s Name Voyager as one of the “50 Best Websites of 2009.” BabyNameWizard.com was designed by Hartford-based marketing and creative firm Fathom. With the winning websites noted as “indispensable to navigating, enjoying yourself, shopping or just killing time on the Web,” Baby Name Wizard is in good company with the likes of flickr, delicious, Google, Open Table, Amazon, YouTube, Hulu, Netflix, Etsy, Twitter, Facebook and more.

“Being honored with the likes of Google and Facebook, our team is proud to see Baby Name Wizard’s Name Voyager join a crowd that is making their mark in the online world and creating legions of fans,” said David Louden, Co-Founder and President, Fathom.

The NameVoyager platform uses data from the Social Security Administration to tell how Jordan, Gage or any name ranks in popularity from the top 1,000 names for each decade.

“As a self-funded start-up, we are thrilled to receive this honor. Selecting a baby’s name is a critical decision for parents-to-be and it is wonderful that TIME recognizes how valuable BabyNameWizard.com’s tools and advice have become for a new generation of parents.” said Jennie Baird, Co-Founder, Generation Grownup, LLC, the holding company for Baby Name Wizard.

Other features of Baby Name Wizard include finding names, learning about origins and pinpointing geographical, demographic and time peaks of name popularity. The site was co-founded by baby names expert Laura Wattenberg, author of The Baby Name Wizard. More than a dictionary, the Baby Name Wizard methodology uses exclusive research and computer models to guide parents to the names that fit their unique taste.

I go back and forth on this. On the telling hand..it might be nice to hear SOME onoipins on the name. If our parents hate the name, I think I’d like to know before the baby arrives. And it can be a fun way to involve our family in the pregnancy. We might tell just our parents and siblings but I’m not sure they could keep it a secret. On the other hand: I’m usually pretty good about ignoring other people’s onoipins but I’m not sure I will be able to ignore onoipins about my kids name. I don’t want someone to “steal” the name. I don’t particularly want a bunch of monogramed stuff with the baby’s name because it limits the use of the items with future kids and I don’t want my kid’s name on all their clothes/bags/whatever where strangers can see when we’re at the grocery store.
