According to the United States Census Bureau well over 11,657 babies are born each and every single day, that’s a lot of children! If you’re a woman who is pregnant or think she could be pregnant, chances are you will start wondering about baby names. In most cases even when parents don’t know if they are having a boy or a girl they still pick out one of each beforehand so that the baby will have a name almost immediately. However, there are other cases were parents like to wait until the baby is actually out of the womb to even start thinking about names. Either way you decide to play it, baby naming can sometimes be difficult. Even in some instances when your husband wants to name your boy after his uncle Milton (and you don’t) or you guys already have a name picked out, there’s no harm in looking around to see a few different names available. I can’t even begin to tell you how many friends I know have had babies, are sure about the name they want and then when the baby comes they change their minds all over again! Its okay. It doesn’t mean your confused about your babies identity or anything like that! It just means you’re being a good parent. I mean your baby is going to have that same name for the rest of his or her life! Oh Miltonnn! Listed below are a few tips I found on a website online that you can use in order to find the perfect name for YOUR baby!
– The most commonly used names for boys are: Jacob, Michael, Abigail, Joshua, Hannah, and Daniel. They’re popular because they all came from the Bible. Other popular names are Ethan (just like Ethan Hawke), Benjamin, Caleb, and Zachary. Also, the name Elijah has become popular since Elijah Woods became popular as well.
– Here are a few girls name as well. Most of the parents I know have a kid with these names Emily, Olivia, Alexis, Emma, and Ashley. Some parents combine it with the name Sarah, Grace, or Rebecca.
– Also name of places or country can be given as a child’s name, like Paris, London, China, Boston and whatever place that comes to mind. Greek gods/ goddesses’ name is also on top of the list: Athena, Xena, Eros, Olympia, and Venus.
– If possible (or of it matters to you) try to see what the name you have picked out for your baby means. For example, Darius means Supporter, Holder & King and its origin comes from the Bible whereas Kendrick means Fearless Leader and its origin is Anglo-Saxon. Obviously for some people they don’t really care about the meaning. But for others, it’s the whole reason behind why they named their child what they did!
– If your finding that baby names and lists and meanings and origins is really starting to overfill your brain with even MORE worry; just pick up a book! I heard about a really awesome and helpful book available called Baby Names Dictionary. It’s only $25 and will include the following content:
- Offers more than 28,000 baby names with corresponding meanings. This includes names that are rarely picked, different and unique.
- Baby names from the ancient times to the modern age.
- A worksheet page that can be used in sorting out and narrowing down preferred baby names.
- Get bonus e-books like Pregnancy Guide, How to Keep your Baby Safe and How Your Baby Can Grow Up Healthy and Smart, absolutely free!
and much more! I really hope these tips help you out some! The last thing you want is to wait days or even weeks longer to name your baby when its born. A babies name is its identity after all! At the same time, it’s also a good idea to take the time naming your baby and consult it with your girlfriend/boyfriend or husband/wife. Even if you are going to be a single mother/father and you need advice, ask some of your friends, or ask your parents if need be (as long as YOUR dad’s name isn’t Milton). They of course will know how much this baby means to you and I’m sure they will be more than happy to help you figure things out! Good luck and congratulations!
The parent most treasure thing to a give a special name for their children
Apart from giving life itself, naming a child name is also one of the most treasured thing that parent should think with their children personality whether the name they are going to keep is suits to his or her personality. There are many familiar names in this world perhaps a slight different in initial. Some baby experts and teachers say that baby names should go along with his or her personality. Before naming the baby names, parents should check with their children how they are interacting with their peers and how he or she is seen by strangers. As there are so many similar names, the parent want to keep their babies names uniquely by adding some traditional names along with theirs names so their children will be exceptional from the crowd.
The most up-to-date fashion is to give children a unique name which should be entirely different from other children may be of different spelling and pronunciation that their children can recognize from the crowd. As for instance, a friend has a daughter called Emily, coincidently two more children by name Emily were already there in the class, she is known as Emily T. And it was before one year the girl understood her name Emily not Emily T. So it is understandable to go with different names. Say there might be problem in misspelling and mispronounce of the names.
One more example, my name is Elvira and children and teachers would make it as Elmira, Olivia , Alvera ……… then she thought she should come out of whatever sound makes her name , said Elvira Bates. Only her mother and husband call her name correctly. Someone suggested that before parent get finalize with the names, they should go to the garden and shout the names five times to see how it sounds! This will be bit weird but it is very important to ensure the names how it sounds. Generally it is advice to avoid names that ends with vowel for instance if the last names are start with vowel then it seems to run names altogether. So, if the surname is long then the first name should keep short or vice versa and avoid the puns.
Once I was worked with a girl called Hazel Nutt! Luckily she had a strong personality and coped with laughter and jokes but many can get complicated with names. When I was in hospital, there was a nurse with the name with Rosie Bottom! (If you are reading this in US, Canada or anywhere in the UK you must be wondering why that should be humorous, well the name was translated as Rosie Butt. Ofcouse the patient found the name very hilarious and I think that to cheer up the patients has to be beneficial but what were parent thinking when they were naming her name.
Fact is that the some people miss out like this , spell out the initials’ of the first, middle and last name whether it makes a word or not. Eventually consider whether the names suits when child grown up.
It is the time to lay foundation to the better future and happy life of a child.
