The Nameberry Drinking Game

If you haven’t heard of it, Nameberry is a baby name website for over-thinking Generation Y females. And you know I love it as much as the next person. Their greatest feature is a ticker at the top of the page showing live name searches. You will get a glimpse at others’ taste that’s both fascinating and hilarious and, as it turns out, lends itself perfectly to a drinking game.

One thought on “The Nameberry Drinking Game

  1. Your posts are helping me survive the early-onset terrible twos. Its acceptable to play this drinking game while my 14 month old throws himself on the ground because he’s so upset that the choo-choo train in his book will not “choo-choo!” back at him, right?
