Welcome to Ipseity, the baby name consultant service of Hannah B. Emery, PhD.
Ipseity means “selfhood” or “identity,” and that is the goal of all of Hannah’s consults: to help your family find the name that best reflects the identity you want for your child. As a sociologist, Hannah has spent most of the last decade studying names and naming; as a parent, she knows how agonizing it can feel trying to find “just the right name.” She is here to help.
Since launching Ipseity, Hannah has completed more than a dozen consults, most often working with two to three families a month. Families consistently remark on how insightful and personalized her work is, as well as how much fun they have reading her results.
