Cupid’s Advice:

There’s no doubt that naming your child is an important process between you and your partner.  If you’re stuck on how to make this decision, here’s a couple of ways to find some middle ground:

1. Use both of your favorites: Do both of you have your heart set on a different name?  Use them both!

2. Try different spellings: There are various spellings to each name. Compromise by having one of your choose the name, while the other chooses the spelling.

3. Make a list: Make a list of your favorite baby names and compare your choices with your partner’s. Look for names that rank high on both of your lists for the perfect resolution.
