About ME

Family naming consultant Kelly Utt-Grubb’s ground breaking work has been featured in major media including PINK Magazine, The Los Angeles Times, and, as well as on numerous radio shows across the country.

Kelly graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of Tennessee and later worked as a Research Assistant in a Psychology lab at Emory University on the Emory Family Togetherness Project, a part of the university’s interdisciplinary Center for Myth and Ritual in American Life.

After facing personal family naming dilemmas and realizing that there was no one to look to for guidance, Kelly resolved to use her personal and professional experience to become that resource for others. She currently assists those deciding on a meaningful last name via Name Counsel and lives in North Carolina with her husband and sons.
