Baby Sleeping in a Basket and a Round Feather Surrounding the Basket

Many parents have a tough time when it comes to picking the perfect baby name (go now).  There are lots of traditional names to select from, but there’s also the option to be unique and creative.  Let’s Look at a few of the important things to consider:SurnameA simple point to consider is whether the name goes well with the surname.   Also, it helps to choose a name that doesn’t jar with the surname, but instead flows with it.Liked by bothAny title chosen for the baby should be enjoyed by both parents.  It can be tricky to find a name that’s entirely liked by both, so it is necessary to reach common ground.  There may be a need to compromise, but that is better than forcing things and going with a name that is hated by one parent.InitialsWhen considering a name, it is worth looking to see what the first, middle and surname spells out.  Shortened versionMany names can easily be shortened.  For instance, the title Catherine is typically shortened to Kate.  If the shortened version of a name isn’t very appealing to you, it may be worth dismissing the original name and to continue to look for something else.Popular namesCertain names are extremely popular and for this reason avoided by many new parents.  Additionally, it’s worth avoiding the titles of high-profile celebrities or their kids if you would like to be unique.Similar namesAny new baby name should go nicely with the names of current children.  For instance, it can be helpful to avoid using very similar sounding names for at least two children.  Similar sounding names can make it more difficult for other people to remember who’s who.  Additionally, the names should sound okay when calling at a park, park or similar location.Later in lifeThe title given to your baby should continue to be acceptable when they become an adult.  There are loads of names that can go well with a toddler, but it might start to sound quite silly later in life.  If the name isn’t likely to sound too great for a grown-up it may be worth reconsidering.
