I. Naming Your Baby Naming your baby can be one of your biggest decisions ever as a parent. After all, your child will have it for the rest of his or her life, whether you choose plain Jane, Tinkerbell or Elvis. Suggestions from everybody and anybody can also plague expectant parents, and while it can be helpful, most of the time it can also be very annoying (especially to hormonal pregnant women). Here are some useful tips to ensure you start off right in the baby naming game! o Start discussing names with your partner as early as possible to set some ideas. o Keep a list of favorites handy so you can add to it whenever a name pops into your head or you get a good suggestion. o Don't choose lightly- remember that names are permanent! o Be flexible – choose names for both sexes, and don’t be dead set on a particular one- you baby may come out with a face that says otherwise. o When all is said and done, remember that the most important criterion for a name is simply that you and your partner like it. II. The Naming Factors When deciding on what name would be perfect for your baby, here are some of the essential factors to consider: Culture and Tradition o You may want your heritage and culture to be reflected in your child’s name. o You may want family traditions to be upheld – for instance having a male name in the family passed down to every generation.

o Your may want a name reflective of your religious faith. Combinations and Connotations . o You may want to use a name from of this category as a middle name. Take into account the embarrassment factor as you wouldn’t want your child to be ashamed for life with a name nobody can pronounce.O.S. Harmony o How does the child’s name harmonize with your surname? o As a rule of thumb.”. Significance o You may want to choose a name with a special significance or meaning. o A good idea would be to choose a traditional or recognizable first name if the baby’s last name is unusual. o Pass up first names that rhyme with your surname. Combining a first name that ends in a vowel with a last name that starts with a vowel – is not a good idea. o Watch out for names that could also harbour a potential joke such as “Nessie” or “Randy” (ok in the U.K!). whereas Andrew Oliver is less likely to solicit teasing in school. o However. longer first names work well with shorter last names. and vice versa. Individuality o Most parents seek distinction when naming their child. and vice versa. o Also. Initials & Hidden Jokes o Anticipate any potential embarrassing nicknames or initial combinations such as Ben Oliver or “B. not in the U. o Also consider names after of those you have known and loved over the years. so you may want to choose a name with a unique quality or not in the current trend (see Celebrity Baby Names).
