Are you looking for a name for your baby? Your character? Your business? Yourself? Are you fascinated by the history and meaning of names? /r/namenerds is a community for name enthusiasts of all kinds. Welcome!
The most important rule to follow is this: be respectful of other people’s name choices. We all have different name tastes and none of them are inherently better, so express your opinions with tact. It’s okay to disagree – constructive criticism and alternative suggestions are perfectly acceptable when asked for, but name bashing of any kind will not be tolerated (this includes bashing the parents who choose said names!). For example, threads and comments that make fun of names or refer to them as “ugly”, “hideous”, “trashy”, “stripper names”, etc. will be removed. If you see these kinds of threads/comments, please report them immediately so they can be dealt with. We want this to be a fun and enjoyable community for all!
There is a three-strikes system for breaking these rules. If you are disrespectful, you get two warnings. The third time, you will be banned. Seriously offensive comments (e.g. racism, hate speech, personal attacks) or obvious trolling attempts may lead to being banned straight away.
If you have any questions, problems, or comments, please don’t hesitate to message the mods.
