A name is forever, indicating it will stay with the baby through the rest of his/her life. Also, names of babies have a significant effect on the child’s development and personality. As you know, giving a name to the baby is the first and most important task that would-be parents usually do. However, when they begin to put it into real consideration, they often realize how difficult it can be to pick the “perfect baby name” for their newly born children.
Many baby names are taken from languages that do actually have deeper meanings, and some might not have the exact meaning you are seeking. To some extent, they are not good names. Here are some of my advices on how to give a beautiful name to your baby.
First, do not consider giving your son or daughter a name that is tricky to pronounce. Some parents think it is adorable to match first name and last name. This is usually just confusing to everyone involved. In general, long surnames are best paired with shorter first names and vice-versa because you child is going to have to write out the name on every piece of paper they turn in for the rest of their life. To break the mold, you might consider a unique spelling instead of a traditional name. Do consider your child in this decision however. If a baby name is spelled so unusually that friends and family have a hard time remembering just how to spell it or even pronounce it correctly, you might have gone too far.
Then, if you want your baby be named in honor of someone else, perhaps the first son should be named after his father. If this is the case, be sure to give the child a nickname early on as to avoid having two people with the same name living in the same house. Besides, middle names are another common way to honor relatives or parents. Sometimes the lines between gender specific names are blurring. This may or may not be a good thing for your baby. It is up to the parents to plan ahead as much as possible.
In addition, avoid using some names which lend themselves easily to nicknames. If you think the nickname is desirable, encourage its use early on. If you prefer the child to go by the full name, you and your little one may have an uphill battle against well-meaning strangers. Another area to consider is any nickname that future classmates might dream up based on the way a name sounds. If there is anything remotely funny about a particular name, you have to reconsider it.
If you still do not know how to give a proper name to your new-born baby, you can also rely on some baby-naming resources on the internet which provide many updated names for parents from around the world, including their origins, meanings, and expert commentary. These information will for sure guide you to the perfect choice in search of a cool name for their baby.
