Nameopia was previously babynameshq.com; however, that site had grown much too unwieldy with tens of thousands of names, which didn't really help make it easier for people to find names they liked, but instead gave them so much to look through that the search would inevitably end up in frustration. To solve this problem, I decided to simplify the site (and change the name as well while I was at it).
Nameopia focuses on providing a large enough collection to be useful but not overwhelming for users. Instead, I hope to provide much more detail and history for each name, as opposed to a cursory view of what the name means and where it came from.
My hope is that users will like the content enough to contribute their knowledge and ideas to help make the site a better resource for everyone.
Happy name hunting!
