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

Cupid’s Advice:

The name you give your child is permanent and will reflect their precious life to come.  Here are some considerations to make when naming your baby:

1. Your last name: When naming your baby, it’s important to think about how the name will sound with your last name.  Try selecting a few of your favorite names and put them together with your last name to see what sounds just right.

2. Your relatives: Carrying names through generations is very important in many families.  If every man in your family has been sharing the same name, and it’s just not your favorite, you should consider using it as your new baby’s middle name.

3. History: When you think of a name, it often brings back a memory of someone.  When naming your baby, you don’t want to always think back to the Amanda you sat next to in grade school and how bad she smelled.  Talk to your significant other, and make sure the names you select don’t ring any old bells.
