NamesNerd was founded in December 2020 by Kyle & Jessi Larson. NamesNerd has a wide variety of name generators to help people discover great name ideas.
How It All Started!
When adopting our yellow lab puppy we were trying to come up with a name that we both liked, so we turned to Google to find some good ideas. Unfortunately, all the sites we kept finding had either only a few ideas or huge A-Z lists with thousands of terrible name ideas.
Kyle, as a web designer & developer, decided he could do better and got started on designing My Dog’s Name, a site for searching for dog names! After spending countless evenings categorizing names in spreadsheets and setting up the backend code we finally launched the site.
We ended up going with a pretty standard name for our pup, Toby (initially we also considered Mac, but he seemed to sweet once we got him for a tougher sounding name).
We then branched out into creating a cat name site & now a site for all kinds of other animals!
Jessi is a marketing strategist for Fortune 50 companies who loves to research and write. She is the proud mom to Toby, a giant Labrador Retriever who thinks he’s a lapdog.
Kyle is a professional web designer and author who keeps our name sites running and looking good.
Toby is a giant 100 pound yellow lab who keeps an eye on everything going on around our house. He’s more of a chewer than a chaser, except when it comes to water. He’d swim to fetch a tennis ball all day long.
