So I was looking for names on ssa.gov like Melissa suggested. (thanks again ) And at number 989 in the most popular of the 2000 was the name Baby. I couldn't believe my eyes, are they serious? Why would someone give their child the name Baby??? I'm actually in shock I've heard it all now. Ok, back to my name search.

Hmmm, I really can't imagine naming my child Baby. I mean, I call her "baby" all the time as a nickname type thing, but as an official name??? Nah.

I don't know why someone would do that when there are some many beautiful names out there.

I have to say if you saw it at the SSA site, there's a good chance that it's from an adoption in progress.
The first name is documented as Baby and then the birthmother's last name is used.

I am not saying that it couldn't be that someone did indeed use Baby for a first name but I know that is what happens with adoptions.

Melissa, yes, that's what I was thinking. The girl that Jennifer Grey played. That was her nickname, though, not her given name.

Yeah, her real name is Francis.
I'm going to believe that it's all from the adoptions, like IrishMama said. I don't want to think that there's a child named Baby out there.

Baby could just be used when no first name was chosen.
