About Lisa Milbrand

My name is Lisa Milbrand, and I’m a name nerd. And that’s probably why my husband and I battled mightily over the names of our daughters (Katharine and Margaret), and the boys’ names we never got to use (Luke and Xander, we hardly knew ye). If you haven’t settled on the perfect name for your babe, you’ve come to the right place. 

On In Name Only, I give you everything you need to know to pick the perfect baby name for your own precious kiddos, from the inside scoop on celebrity picks to my own off-the-beaten-path suggestions. And I’m always happy to help my readers with their big baby naming dilemmas—and hopefully find the perfect name before delivery day!
