How to decide on your baby's name

Picking a name for your new baby is an important decision to make. The name you give your baby is what will identify him for the rest of his life. You should thus take time in order to choose wisely. However, deciding on your baby’s name is not always easy. The experience ranges from joyful, to emotional, to sometimes even frustrating. When choosing your baby’s name, there are many other points to consider besides how unique or popular a name is.













Some helpful Baby Name Tips:

  • Do not pick a baby name that is really cute for an adorable little baby but will sound silly when the baby grows up
  • It is a good idea to go through baby name books and eventually pick one that has a special meaning to you – maybe a baby name that means “brave”, “kind”, or “strong”
  • Do not choose a baby name that is so unusual that the other children will make fun of your son or daughter as they grow up
  • You and your family do not want a baby name that is so hard to pronounce or to spell that other people will always get it wrong and your son or daughter will have to go through life correcting people
  • You should remember that baby names should go nicely with the sound of your last name. Also decide on a first name and a middle name that go together well.
  • Consider baby names that will go nicely with your name and your other children’s names
  • Do not select a baby name that is so trendy that it will sound funny when the baby is older
  • Why not consider picking a baby name in honour of favourite ancestors or relatives, or special baby names that show the ethnic roots of your family. Special baby names from movies or books are also a popular trend
  • When you and your family come across a baby name you all like, have a look at the initials to ensure that you do not give the new baby a name with initials that will make people laugh
  • Completely avoid baby names which might produce insulting nicknames when it is shortened.
