What are some factors to consider when you’re naming your child?

Cupid’s Advice:

Naming your child can sometimes be a difficult endeavor for you and your partner.  Not only must you find the perfect name, you also must agree on it.  Here are the top factors to consider:

1. Family names: Maybe you want to use an old family name or name your child after a much-loved deceased relative.

2. Unique names: Your child is unique and their name should be, too.  Just don’t go overboard to the point where you name your child something completely weird.  Keep in mind that he or she will have to live with the name you give them for the rest of their life.

3. Favorite names: Everyone has their favorite names that they’ve always wanted to name their child.  Share your favorite baby names with your partner and have them share with you.
