Haven’t Heard of a Professional Baby Namer?

Taylor’s career as a baby namer began in 2015 when she created the Instagram account “What’s in a Baby Name” where she wanted to simply share her love for baby names. The account eventually became very popular and naming babies became her full-time job. Now, she gets paid $1,500 to create a bespoke baby name list, which is based on a questionnaire filled out by the parents-to-be. Coming up with names that “will be on-brand with a parents’ business” costs $10,000.

When it comes to picking the perfect name for a newborn, the professional baby namer says that parents already know what to pick but they just need a little push. She also commented that it’s easy to say she’s naming babies for a living but her job goes way beyond that. She’s providing spiritual, emotional, and physical support for clients in their journey to becoming parents. In addition, she said that she’s leading the expecting parents back to their inner place of intuition and wisdom. Her job is more about helping the parents find the right answer that already exists inside of them.

When She’s Most Wanted

Most of the clients Humphrey has are people who already exhausted the baby names they had. Many families with 3-4 children turn to her to get advice on what to choose. Some even needed help when a name they chose is sounding too close to the one colleagues of theirs have picked. The professional baby namer also commented that what makes a good baby name is not your opinion of it but how it suits the child who bears it.
