How to choose amazing baby names 

At the end of last year I got a kitten, it took me about a week to name her once I got her, I went from Dusty, to Edie, but finally settled on Nell !!
This got me thinking about baby names, and how hard it is to choose the name once they arrive. You might have your heart set on something  but then the name just doesn’t feel right once they finally arrive, and for a few days your baby might just be called baby!!!

My tips on choosing the right baby name include:

  1. Remember that classic names don’t have to be boring
  2. Take a look at your family tree
  3. Honor your culture
  4. Look up meanings
  5. Contemplate all possible nicknames
  6. Consider the importance of the middle name
  7. Don’t forget about the initials
  8. Say it out loud
  9. Keep it a secret if thats what you and your partner want
  10. Don’t stress too much
