Behind the Name - Reliable source for etymology and history of first names. This is a great place to check and see if a name really did originate as a surname, etc.

Name Voyager - The history of name usage in the US. This tool is in a great format for exploring the ups and downs of trends! Even traditional names do go through periods of popularity and rejection.

Nymbler - It offers trendy suggestions, but if you put in classic names as inspiration, that's what you will get in return. Great for finding names that fit your "style" without input you don't want.

Name Nerds!- I love the articles on names, they're very interesting. My favorite is the one on middle names. There's also an extensive section for Irish names and one for Scottish names as well (if you're into that sort of thing). If you're not into Irish or Scottish names, the articles in the "Unique and Unusual Names" section are very good and definitely worth a read!
