Posted on August 15 2018
Picking a name out for your baby is probably one of the most important decisions you will make while pregnant. Whether you are choosing a family name, or you have absolutely no idea what to name your precious bundle of joy, here’s a guide on how to pick your baby’s name.
5 Tips on How to Pick Your Baby’s Name
#1 Make a List
One of the best ways to narrow down your top name picks is to make a list. You and your hubby can sit down and write down your favorites and then go one by one crossing the ones off that you don’t like and the ones that are maybes.
#2 Use an App
In today’s world, there’s an app for everything! Would you believe there’s a baby name app now? Yup, there sure is. You can find a ton of apps in your phone that allows you to pick some of the top names you love and then will give you a list of similar options. Some great options include Baby Names Genius and Baby Names Nametrix. If you are stuck on what to name your baby, give these fun apps a try!
#3 Pick up a Baby Name Book
if you are looking for a more old school way of picking out a baby name, go out and pick up a baby name book! You can find these books at local bookstores or even on Amazon.
#4 Think About Family Names
Do you have a family name you know you want to use? Do you want to use it as a first or a middle name? Thinking about family names and their importance is a great way to narrow down your top baby names.
#5 Think About Initials
When you have some of your favorite names picked out, start to think about initials. Think about what works well together, and what doesn’t sound as great. This can also be another great way to help narrow down your top name picks.
Picking your baby’s name is one of the most exciting parts of pregnancy. You get to name the little human you are going to meet in no time, and it allows you to have the opportunity to really think long and hard about what name your baby will carry with them throughout life. No pressure! Make it fun, and at the end of the day, if you still haven’t decided before baby is born, maybe their personality when they enter this world will give you a clue as to what name you should pick!
