I hope to use this blog to explore wonderful names from the Sciences, Science Fiction, and Fantasy. I plan to include both unique names created for fiction, as well as 'normal' names that have a geeky reference. I'm not going to delve too deep into meanings and histories, as there are plenty of other sites that do a great job of that. I'll just focus on the geek factor of the name. If you'd like to suggest a name, please send me a tweet at @GeekNames. You can also follow me on tumblr at: geeknames.tumblr.com.

I hope my humble efforts provide inspiration for naming not just your two legged babies, but four legged ones as well. In fact some of these names might be more suitable for geeky dogs and cats.

I consider myself a moderate geek, so forgive me if some of my geeky definitions are a bit off. I've been a Trekkie since my teens, and have had a love of sci-fi and fantasy ever since.
