The feature you've been waiting for!

That’s right, Nymbler just learned a new skill. It’s the “Block this Name” trick.

After hearing much feedback from you, we’ve retrained Nymbler and now you can block names from showing up in your search. Just use the button to add a name to your “blocked names” list. So, if you hate the name “Bart” because it reminds you of The Simpsons, just click the .

If you notice something else different, you’re right. That’s because the button has replaced the button. To find out all the information about a name, just simply click the name. So, if you just finished the newest Harry Potter, and you’re wondering where exactly “Harry” originated, just click on “Harry” and you’ll learn it’s an English name with a jazz-age spirit.

Your feedback was a big part of this update, so keep those comments coming. Leave comments right here in the blog or e-mail us at thenest@nymbler.com.

Nymbler's Top Names

According to the Social Security Administration, the top names of 2006 were Emily and Jacob.

But here at Nymbler, we think things have changed in the first six months of 2007.

Of all the names added to “My Favorites,” Ava tops the list for the ladies and Jack is the top boy’s name pick. Following Ava is Charlotte, Sophie, Elizabeth and Lily. The boy’s top 5 continues with Benjamin, Owen, Max and Noah.

We found lots of other data too. Here’s a look at the top boy’s and girl’s names in a few different Nymbler categories:

  • Names Most Frequently E-mailed: Ella & Benjamin

  • Names Most Frequently Listed as Inspirations: Elizabeth & Jack

  • Names Most Information Requested for: Ava & Jack
  • Names Most Frequently Suggested by Nymbler: Rachel & Max
  • Names Most Frequently Added to Inspirations: Ava & Jack

According to all our information Jack and Ava seem to be the most common names on Nymbler.com.

What do you think? Will Jack and Ava top the 2007 list of favorite names?
