Name HelpNow that the comments are up and running, it’s time for something new!

For years, I’ve been wanting to offer Name Consultations.

Plenty of sites do a fabulous job – Swistle and Duana and Waltzing More than Matilda are some of my favorites.

But there’s no shortage of parents looking for a little help with a name quandary.  The Appellation Mountain Facebook community has come through time and time again with great insights and suggestions.

So let’s give this a try, shall we?

If you’d like your naming dilemma/question/concern addressed in a Saturday post on Appellation Mountain, please complete this form:

Once your form is submitted, I’ll be in touch via email to schedule your date and confirm details (how to display your names, etc.)

And if your question feels like it just won’t fit in this format, please feel free to email me directly at appmtn (at) gmail (dot) com.

As always, thanks to each and every one of you who visits this site! It’s your thoughts and comments that are so helpful to others as we try to settle on the right name.

  1. We’d love help with names for our second son, due Nov! We have one son, Archer Cohen Bear “Archie”. No names seem to compare to his name, however. 🙁 We haven’t been able to find a single name that I even feel would be right.
