Getting ready for baby? Naming our precious angels could be one of the toughest or challenging part of being a millennial parent.
Picking a name for your child can sometimes feel overwhelming. Others even get the pressure when relatives, in-laws or even friends offer suggestions of their own and it could be hard to say no even if you don’t really like it!
So if you are also currently thinking of what to name your baby, check out the list below from Baby Center for some baby names inspiration.
There’s no right or wrong way to pick a name for your baby. The most important consideration is to choose the one you really love.
Your child will grow into whatever name you pick. So here are a few things to keep in mind when deciding:
- Sound- will it sound good when you call your child? is it nice to hear? Does it go well with his/her last name?
- Uniqueness- this is good but possible mispronunciations may subject your child to a lifetime of correcting everyone how to say it.
- Initials- Gosh! If you name your kid Zach Ivan Timothy, just imagine his unfortunate nickname in school! or your little girl’s luggage tag initials are BAD because you named her Brielle Amanda Dizon. Hahaha! 😀
- Names that age well- You may also imagine your child in a professional situation when picking a name. They are adorable, yes, but Bunny or Cheeky might seem cloying when your child is an adult.
I am currently on the same spot as I was over 2 years ago trying to create a unique but meaningful name for my child. And let me tell you that I always feel the thrill and love when I call my little girl with her full name- Amaria Niszha. Feels like we did a great job naming her then! 😀
Quick TRIVIA: Amaria from the Arabic Origin meaning charming, imaginative & impressionable, and “God has said” in Hebrew. And also because I have Maria on my name too! Niszha just because my nickname is Nish and her dad’s is Jaze.
Have fun naming your baby! Hope you choose a great one that they’ll appreciate and love in their lifetime.
