Jump to: navigation, search

Choosing a name for a baby is said to be one of the most important things that you can do for baby – yes it is that important. So (be careful|take care} when thinking of a name, and remember that you are choosing a name for a baby that will grow up to be an adult. The name that sounds cute for a little child may not suit a strapping six footer later in life!|It has been said that choosing a name for your baby is the most important thing you can do for him apart from actually giving him life. Yes, it's that important, so when choosing a boy's or girl's name please take a lot of care. And remember you are choosing a name for a baby that will grow up to be an adult! A name that seems to suit a cute baby may not be suitable for a 6'3? hunk in his twenties!|Deciding on a baby's name needs much thought. It is said that a name is one of the most important things you will give your baby (apart from life itself!). Don't just choose a name that suits that cuddly little baby, that child will grow up into an adult and the name needs to be acceptable in later life and not cause embarrassment or teasing.}

The fashion these days is to choose unusual or unique boy names and girl names. But is this a good idea? Maybe, but think carefully before giving junior a name that others may laugh at – the effect on a young child of being teased can be long-lasting. Celebs may get away with choosing baby names like �Apple' or �Moon', but these children probably won't be subjected to playground banter.

Unusual spelling can be a bad choice too. A friend of ours says only her mother and husband spell her name correctly! Also, bear in mind that a name that has unusual spelling doesn't sound any different, so when teacher calls for Katey then Katie and Katy will also come running.

Take care, too, with choosing names that don't suit the last name. I once worked with a girl called Hazel Nutt. She laughed it off and had the personality to do so, but some children would find such a name a burden. Every time someone met her for the first time there was laughter, but I am sure that sometimes the grin was really a grimace!

The name you give your baby is a gift, make it one he will be proud of.
