Type a first or last name, or the first letter(s) of a first or last name into the nameBrowser search box. To narrow your search, you can select “boy,” “girl,” and/or a country of origin from the origin pull-down box.

To add a name to the nameWorkspace, double click on a name in the browser results window, or click the Submit button.

If a name does not appear in the browser results window, you can add it to your workspace by typing the name into the search field and clicking Submit.
