Crowdsourcing Social Media Baby Names

Our two expecting community team members, Melanie Thompson & Amanda Nelson

Yesterday we asked to our community for baby names with a social media spin.

Why?

Our community team members span North America from New Brunswick to Miami, Arizona to Connecticut. So on a quarterly basis we all get together for full-day meetings. This time around, two of our team members, Melanie Thompson and myself, are expecting and the mention of baby names arose as quickly as the creation of our baby room Pinterest boards.
Here is a breakdown of the responses and a bunch of names you recommended.

We sent the following tweet:
 


And received 42 posts around the baby names conversation. Here are the main words used:
