Are you still referring to your reborns with generic terms like "the one in the blue outfit" or "the one in the crib?" To get the most enjoyment out of your reborn doll collecting hobby, you should give each and every doll in your collection a name. This added level of personalization will create a special bond between you and your doll, which is just one of the many reasons why you should name them. Unfortunately, however, many collectors feel lost when it comes to naming their dolls. If this sounds like a familiar scenario, keep reading and we'll reveal our list of the top 100 boy and girl reborn doll names. In addition, we'll also go over some basic tips and strategies for choosing a name.
Do I Really Need To Name My Reborn Dolls?
While you can still collect and enjoy reborn dolls without giving them a name, there are several benefits in doing so. The most obvious benefit is that it makes categorizing and keeping track of your collection easier and less time-consuming. This won't be a problem for beginners with small collections of just a couple reborn dolls, but those with a dozen or more may find it difficult to keep track of all of them. After naming (and memorizing) your dolls, you'll find it's naturally easier to remember where they are. You can also refer to your dolls with a real name instead of just saying "that one over there."
Another advantage to naming your reborn dolls is that it strengthens the already present emotional bond between you and your doll. You'll likely find yourself ordering customized doll clothes, blankets and other accessories with their name on it. The more you say, see and hear their name, the more sentimental value the doll will hold for you.
Note: Most reborns purchased from reputable artists will already be given a name. Artists tend to give their dolls names before placing them up for sale. Now, you can either choose to keep their original name, or you can name them something completely different. Be warned, though, you may need to make another birth certificate for your reborn if you decide to change their name (we'll show you how in the previous link).

The Basics of Choosing a Name For Your Reborn Doll
The primary goal in naming your reborn doll is to create a unique, fun and relevant name that holds meaning. Don't just pick the first baby name your hear on the television or read in a magazine. While this may work on occasion, a better approach is to think about a relevant name that looks like it fits your reborn doll. After all, you'll be speaking and seeing their name for years to come, so you want to make sure it's a good one.
Hopefully, the list of the top 100 boy and girl reborn doll names above will spark some idea for you to work with. Our team came up with these names based on past and present reborn dolls we've seen, visitor feedback and trends in baby names. With that said, this doesn't necessarily mean that you'll find a name you like on our list. If you can't find a suitable name for your doll, check the tips below for more guidance.
- The first step in choosing a name for your reborn doll is to narrow it down to a specific gender. There are unisex names out there, but most collectors tend to use a prominent male or female name for their doll. If you haven't decided what gender doll you want, it's probably better to wait on choosing a name.
- Choose a name that naturally rolls off the tongue and is easy to speak. Trying to say some weird 4 or 5 syllable name will grow tiring day-after-day.
- Consider naming your reborn doll a name that holds personal meaning to you. For instance, perhaps you could use the same name as your mother or father.
- Use a spin-off of your name for a personalized touch.
- Don't limit yourself to a single name, as there's nothing wrong with using two full names.
- Most importantly, have fun when choosing the name for your reborn doll!
