Things to Consider When Naming Your Baby
Is your baby a boy or a girl? To most, this is the very first factor that matters when choosing a name. Other parents may find a gender-neutral name more desirable.
Religion or Faith
For many parents, religion or faith plays a large role in their lives. Those may wish to choose a baby name that echoes their faith.
Ethnicity or Nationality
Many parents seek to integrate their child’s or family’s ethnicity or nationality into the name of their baby. This can be a wonderful and meaningful way to display pride in heritage through a name.
Another popular option when naming babies is by naming them after a family member–mother, father, siblings, grandparents, aunts. Consider this an homage to that person and a way to carry on tradition.
People – Famous or Fictitious
Aside from choosing names based off of family members, parents can choose to name their baby after favorite or admired famous people or even fictional characters from beloved movies or books.
Do you want to name your child something unique or never-before-heard of? You can literally create your own name, or change the spelling of a name you like. While it’s probably unlikely you’ll ever come up with a name no one has ever used, you can still opt for uncommon names.
