Here at Name of the Year we are all about finding and recognizing great names.

Name of the Year was founded in 1983 on an Ivy League campus. Its mission has remained unchanged: to discover, verify, nominate, elect and disseminate great names. All names included here are, to the best of our knowledge, real. No malice is intended.

In 2021, new owners took over Name of the Year, but our mission remains the same – discovering great names and sharing them with you here.

We are not affiliate with the previous Name of the Year team and we are no longer going to be doing brackets and polls to find the best names. Instead, we are finding all the great names and sharing them with you here.

If you’ve got some great names that you want to share, then be sure to contact us and let us know.
