How to Choose a Baby Name?

A baby name is one of the most important things you give to your baby boy or baby girl. According to Kylie from MSU, a baby's name helps determine your child's identity. Will they be lazy? Shy? Aggressive? or maybe creative? Thoughtful? and determined? Of course, there are other factors involved, but choosing a suitable baby name is something you have immediate control over. It is an excellent way to give your child's life a head start towards a great future.

With the warning out of the way, don't forget, there is still hope to find the perfect baby name. Here is our guide to choosing the perfect baby name.

How to Find a Baby Name?

Finding a suitable baby name can get very involved and take a long time. There are a lot of things to consider. Is the name too unique? Is it too common? Will it affect my child's ability to get a job? According to NBC News, a name affects your chances of landing a job. As stated in the article:

Shuki Khalili: I tried using an American name, ‘Andrew Warner,’ and suddenly I could at least engage them in conversation and sell them some ads so I could build my business.

This quote emphasizes the importance of a name!

Here are a few tips on choosing a good baby name
  • Choose names that have stood the test of time. If you look at the trends for baby names on ssa.gov, you will notice that certain names seem to hang around the top 10. Boy names, such as Liam, Noah, William, and girls names such as Emma, Olivia, and Ava are at the top for a good reason. They are safe, nice names, and there is nothing wrong with being safe every once in a while.
  • It is always a good idea to choose a name from your heritage. If you are French, you can choose names like Adelynn, Aubrey, Holly for girls, Ray, Lee, and Oliver for boys. It is a good way to honor your heritage and find good baby names at the same time.
  • You can also find names based on meanings. If you want your baby boy to be brave, strong or courageous, then names like Everett and Dusty fit. For your girl, if you want names that represent beauty, then names like Anabella or Ebony are great choices.
  • With the amount of bullying that goes on in school today, you should definitely consider the possible derogatory names that can be used as nicknames for some names. On nickname stories, there is a list of the different effects of awful nicknames. You can always do a Google search on a name to see any derogatory nicknames you may not be aware of
  • Always remember to check the initials. There have been instances where parents inadvertently give their child the worst initials. Take these real-life examples into consideration:

    Frank Ulysses Kemper
    Amber Samantha Sampson
    Unity Geraldine Lia Irvin
    Tommy Oliver Adam Dean

    This is definitely something you will want to look out for because someone else will definitely notice.
