YOUR Favorite Names of 2019

Analytics. Perhaps, one of the coolest parts of getting into social media is that we get so much data. We have tools at our fingertips that can truly help us match our product to our audience. In our short time creating content for Mom and The Pie we've learned so much (yet still feel very novice) about how to dive into the analytics and really notice what it is our followers want to see. While this passion of ours was always intended to be a place to inspire, to share our own thoughts, and to be creative while spending time together... we thought it would be cool to share with you YOUR favorite names of 2019.

In this collection we will share with you the videos, pins, tweets and posts that YOU enjoyed the most last year.

We can't seem to agree on which social platform is our favorite. We started out with the intention of building a Youtube channel. After watching and laughing hysterically as gals shared, "names I love but..." we thought, we could DO this.  But we didn't want to be in our videos. Now that we've been at it for a while, we realize that might not be to our advantage. But we are okay with that.  We seem to have more fun creating simple tweets or name art to post on insta. The occasional blog idea comes to one of us, but even more entertaining is just scrolling though and seeing what everybody is up to.

This post is about YOU. Let's get started with YOUR favorite names of 2019.

Most of your favorite names from our Youtube channel were a part of our A-Z Collections for Boys and Girls. 

In 2019, you absolutely loved Baby Boy Names Starting With H. Hayden has the thumbnail for this video that got the most views last year.

You also love names for girls and boys that start with K. Kamilla and Kellen caught your eye.

Nadira and Ellis were names you picked from our other top videos of 2019.

The term you searched most was "unisex baby names" and some other Youtube fan favorites were names that end with -ie or -la, and nature names.

Without a doubt your favorite name on our Pinterest page was Wren

Other notables from our baby name boards in 2019 were Idalia, Shay and Westley. Our collection of short names was popular, with Eli stealing your heart.

Names with nicknames also got you clicking, with "Vivi" for Vivienne getting a lot of love. Colette and her shorties, also had you swooning this year.

Other top pins we created included Remington, Ruby, Nash and Wells.

We have to admit, it's tough to break into Twitter

We don't get a ton of (if any) interaction and our follower count has been stuck around 600 for as long as we can remember. When we started out we religiously posted a baby name of the day, but after not getting a lot of feedback we switched to more of a casual "musings" style for our tweets.  We post thoughts, names we see IRL, and try to interact with other namers in an entertaining way. It's tough to determine from this social media source what you really loved, but here is what the analytics for each month in 2019 tell us you enjoyed.
January: No great tweets!
February: Zarek and Louisiana
March: Rook and Ivory
April: Mayer
May: Emric
June: Mildred
July: Bishop
August: Chase
September: Liberty
October: Ford and Kierce
November: Coralie
December: Quilla and Ryland

Finally, we share what names were hot on our Instagram page. 

We'll never forget when we opened up the app one day back in 2018 and Golden had 100 likes! It was a super exciting time, but we've come to realize that something fishy may have happened.  It is more usual for our posts to get between 15-40 likes. And as for 2019, here are your favorites.

Colette and her nicknames, the same as that pin you loved was our most liked insta, followed by Roux, Harley, Lachlan and Elowen.

Lennox was another fan favorite and Maclaine got a bunch of love. You also adored Leoni, Walker and Rhodes.

Let us know which of these  2019 fan favorites YOU love!

Name Watch 2020: Names for Boys that End with -s

Boy's names that end in the letter "s" are everywhere! At least it seems that way. Of course with James being perhaps the most popular boy's name of all time, you'd think that -s enders would be all over the charts. Not exactly. There's Lucas of course, coming in at #8 in 2018, but then you have to go all the way to #49 and classic Thomas before you see another boy's name that ends in -s.  So why then, does it feel like we are seeing them everywhere?

We are seeing these -s ending names  trend into a few categories. Nature Names An earthy vibe is something we've long seen in naming, yet don't tend to find in the Top 100. Last year we predicted that we'd see some on the rise, yet these boho names still don't top the charts. Perhaps these -s ending nature names will move on up this year.

Surnames Last names first is a favorite of ours, and many of the names we've been seeing with -s…

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!

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

Boozy Baby Names

With craft beers, whisky flights and rosé all the rage these days, we (well Mom) had to wonder... are there any boozy baby names that could actually work? The Pie was not in on this post (she's 9). I started thinking about the idea of liquor inspired names as I pondered the popularity of Porter. It's a boy's name on the rise, leaping from 803 to 398 from 2000 to 2017.  It is one of those names that is not super common, but I just kept seeing and hearing it everywhere and wondered, why?

The connection I kept making was to Porter, a style of beer. That might just be my background in the bar biz, as the name actually originates from an English and Scottish surname, it's an occupational name meaning "gatekeeper" or "doorkeeper." In other languages Porter translates to a person who carries the load, or transfers objects for others.

Porter beer was developed in London and is a dark variety from brown malt. It's name derived from the popularity it had …
