Simple tips for choosing the right name for your baby

If you’re going to be parents for the first time, obviously this will be one of the most magical experiences of your lives. It will also be a pretty hectic part of your lives as although it could be several months until you welcome your newborn baby into the world, the time will literally fly by and there will be lots for you to do to prepare. You may not think it, but choosing a name for a newborn baby is one of the most difficult and stressful tasks for parents. The name will stay with your child forever, so you need to ensure that you get it absolutely right. Some tips to consider…

Don’t let others influence you

This will be your baby and it is your duty to name them. Forget about what other people say, don’t let others influence you, and certainly don’t let silly celebrity baby names or magazines influence you, unless of course you genuinely like the name.

Never try to be clever

Forget about these moronic Facebook pages stating that with X amount of likes they’ll name their baby Megatron or Optimus Prime, or who knows what. If people would actually give their child a name purely based upon what strangers on the internet think then something is very wrong. Your child has to live with their name so go with a sensible name and never try to be smart or clever in a bid to draw attention to yourself.
