Getting Started

Deciding on baby's name is one of the most important decisions you'll have to make during your pregnancy (but really, no pressure!). Finding a great baby name can also be a lot of fun. Whether you're looking for baby names for girls or boys, it's a good idea to figure out the basics first. Do you like the idea of using a well-known, traditional baby name or are you looking for something more quirky? How attached are you to the meaning behind your baby's name?

Meaning: Healer

Perhaps the masculine definition of "tired and overused," Jason was in the top five from ’73 to ’82 and actually sparked a baby name book called Beyond Jennifer and Jason: The New Enlightened Guide to Naming Your Baby. It dropped pretty quickly after that peak, and though it’s still (barely) in the top 60, it isn’t going anywhere but still further down the charts. Hint: Don’t try to perk it up by going and spelling it Jayson or something. Please.
