MoonDragon's Pregnancy Information
BABY NAMES, TIPS & CONSIDERATIONS




Choosing the name for your baby will probably be one of the most important, exciting and fun things you will do during your pregnancy. Throughout the pregnancy, many hours will be spent on choosing the baby's name. Friends, relatives, and even strangers will give you their opinions. You will probably consider many names and name combinations before you finally come to a decision. Sometimes you may have several favorite names picked out and then decide after the birth which one fits your baby the best. The following are considerations and tips that will help to get you started to find the perfect name for your baby.

Consider what the baby's surname (the family name that comes last) will be. Does the first name you have chosen go well with the surname? Do the names sound good together when said out loud? You do not want to pick a name combination that will be an object of ridicule or jokes when the child starts school. It may seem cute now, but you must consider the child will eventually grow up and become an adult.

An example of this was seen when I was in court to legally change my married name back to a family name (but not my maiden name) and witnessed a name change by a family of 5. The father's name was Harry Butts. They were petitioning the court to have their last name changed from Butts to Butler. I am sure that they all received a great deal of teasing and were the subject of jokes.

Consider what the initials will spell out when first, middle and surname are initialized and avoid unpleasant initials. For example, Ryan Andrew Torres when initialized spells RAT or Catherine Alice Thomas when initialized spells CAT. Think about possible teasing from other children as your child grows up.

Some expectant parents feel the need and/or pressure from family members to use precedent family names. Family names are great and give your baby a rich heritage, but if you do not care for the name and the name is not what you want to call the child, consider using the family name as a middle name, or plan to call the child by the middle name of your choice.

Remember that children must live with the name you choose for them the rest of their lives, so while unique names and spellings are very interesting and favorable, consider the fact that the child could always have their name mispronounced or misspelled. This can be very frustrating for a child (and adults as well). Consider names that are of ethnic origin. They do not even have to be your own ethnic origin. Ethnic names sound beautiful and are very unique. Choose a name based upon it's meaning. Sometimes the meaning of a name can steer you away from the name, or draw you closer to it. Positive meanings are your best guide. You can find many possibilities for baby names, their meanings and their origins with the links provided below.

Consider the possible nicknames that could arise from your baby's name. Do you like the nicknames that could possibly be derived from it?

Say the entire name out loud many times. Does it sound right? Does it rhyme? If it rhymes, does the rhyme sound good?

Consider popularity. Names that are popular today, may not be popular 20 years from now when your child is 20. Consider the trendiness of the name today.

If you are stuck on 2 names, consider combining the two. An example: If you are stuck on Janet and Leigh, consider combining the two names to form Janalie (or Janaleigh).

If you are going to use a suffix, for example, Richard John Carlton, III, you may want to consider calling the baby by his middle name (John) if there are other family members already being called Richard or John, you might consider calling the baby by his initials, such as R.J. This will help to avoid confusion.

Above all else, this is the name that YOU choose and are proud of, so choose what YOU like.
