Our Inspiration

We are obsessed. We've spent every free minute of the last four months on Mom and the Pie. We learned how to set up a youtube channel because Sunny Lenarduzzi is the best! We discovered tools for creation like Canva (amazing) and when we felt like we had NO IDEA what we were doing, we'd get a lovely reply to our comment from a fabulous namer like SJ Strum.


We are finding inspiration in so many places. #Babynames on Pinterest? Don't even get us started! We created 30 Unique Names for Girls by collecting names that were new to us. There are at least 20 namers on instagram, including namespottings, who frequently has us laughing out loud.

Did you know Baby Name Monday was a thing? You’re welcome. You don't have to be expecting to enjoy a weekly themed video such as Earthy Baby Names, Unisex Baby Names or Baby Names Inspired by Color every Monday from a variety of enjoyable youtubers.

In the time since we started Mom and the Pie the SSA released their Top Baby Names of 2017 and we made an accurate prediction with Liam. Also in this time a royal baby was born and we anxiously awaited his name. We've discovered naming trends, as some of our most watched videos are Unisex Baby Names and One-Syllable Baby Names (Our girl's edition featuring the Kardashian name True came out before she was born) We've been inspired in so many ways and motivated to continue because we are enjoying every minute of it.

We recently came across the name Laylia. It was new. It was sweet. Had we heard it before? No. Were we sure how to pronounce it? Not really. But we designed media for it and the crowd went wild. Is it the most clever and unique name we've ever seen? No. But it was the finding of it that was such a thrill.

We are finding inspiration in the naming community!

The Real GOT Names You Should be Looking At

Post by Mom. The Pie is a kiddo, so of course has never viewed the show.

 As a namer I've seen plenty of Game of Thrones inspired baby name lists. Collections of names from the characters on the show. As a viewer who sometimes feels like I shouldn't be, I often wonder, would you really name your baby in honor of the crude, inappropriate, immoral and sometimes just flat out disgusting show?
 I realize it is happening. Khaleesi continues to be a name on the rise, and both Arya and Aria have gone from a spot in the 900's to 119 and 19 respectively.  Even Winter has made leaps on the popularity charts. No doubt due to the ominous threat, "winter is coming."
 I've found my GOT names in another spot~ the credits. For years, I've watched the opening of the show and as a namer, of course,  I closely eye the names of actors, directors, producers and composers looking for names that are new to me and inspiring. Here is a collection of names from Game of Thrones wor…

The Next Kardashian Baby Name

It was early in our naming journey when Khloe's daughter True was born, but only a few days before, we'd posted our video One Syllable Baby Girl Names, and sure enough at 3:23 you can see short & sweet little True. No, we're taking NO credit for any kind of prediction, but it felt kind of cool to have at least had the name on our radar. Nine months later and tons of time spent exploring naming, we are going to make some observations and soft predictions about the next Kardashian baby name.


Kanye Omari West & Kimberly Noel Kardashian West have three children:
North West
Saint West
Chicago West

With a fourth child on the way, who we know is a little boy, we thought we'd see if we have our finger on the pulse- a feel for what the name might be. We are thinking if we put this out there now, it will be fun to look back at and see how right (or terribly wrong) we were!

How fresh does that sound? With that coast to coast "wheels up" lifestyle, the …

The Brand New Baby Name Tag

We don't YouTube in the traditional way, yet couldn't pass up the chance to share our thoughts on the NEW 2019 BABY NAME TAG!
 We decided to share our thoughts here. As you may know, we are a mother-daughter duo, who fell in love with naming in 2018. The videos on our youtube channel are just names, not opinions~ we don't discuss names there. We just love to produce name art @momandthepie on instagram, tweet interesting name musings and collect the best of name images on our Pinterest boards.
 We've found a shared hobby and have had a fabulous time learning everything we can about names, finding others in the naming community and growing some of our techie skills. We are no experts! Just NAMERS.

 Only on our blog will you find some of our opinions, our thoughts on naming trends and our favorites. Here are both MOM and THE PIE'S responses to the Brand New Name Tag~ Names I Love:
1. If you had a baby tomorrow, what would you call them? Boy & Girl?Mom: Easy on th…
