Laura Wattenberg is devoted to the hunt for the perfect name. Her unique approach looks at all of the ingredients that make up a name's distinctive style — not just origins but popularity, history, ethnic, religious and literary associations, even pop-culture references. (You don't know anything about Kermit if you don't know Kermit's a frog!)
For her best-selling guidebook The Baby Name Wizard, Laura compiled a huge storehouse of name information and used it to paint complete style portraits of thousands of names. She has lent her expertise to Nymbler, helping to teach this "baby naming assistant" to understand names and understand parents' personal preferences as they make the lifelong choice of a name.
