Tips for Picking the Right Baby Name
Picking the right baby name can be tough. There's thousands of options out there, so how can you know which one to pick for your child? We've got some tips here that will help you get through the challenge of picking the right baby name for your new kid.
Keep your process organized. Making lists can be very helpful when trying to pick a baby name. Given that there's so many options out there, if you don't keep organized you're liable to forget some of the ones you liked! You can make lists for each letter, or organize them by theme. Ranking the names you like might also be a helpful way to stay organized.
Think about how a chosen name will be perceived in the real world. Unfortunately, not everyone will be as receptive to an especially unique name as you. Children like to pick on others they perceive as different; if your child has an out-there name, they're likely going to get bullied. It's important to remember that your child is the one who has to live with the name they're given. Think about how a given name would look on a job application; might your child be taken less seriously because of their name?
Consider initials. Sometimes, initials can come together to form words themselves. If your child's initials would come together to form odd or bad words, you may want to consider a different name. Alternatively, you could try spelling a name differently. For example, spell Cameron as Kameron to switch up your child's initials.
Don't over-stress. Picking a name can become an awfully stressful process if you let it. Try not to get too stressed throughout this process; stress isn't good for you or for your baby. If you feel yourself getting overwhelmed, take a break and do something else. There's plenty of time to pick a name out for your child; don't let it cause you more stress than it needs to.
Start early enough. You don't want to start the process of picking a baby name two weeks before your child is due. This is going to make you feel pressured, and you won't have a lot of time to think over your decision. Rushing to pick a baby name at the last second is only going to cause you stress, which you should be trying to avoid.
