Cupid’s Advice:

Naming your child is a very important decision, and sometimes you and your partner will not agree. Cupid has some ways to compromise:

1. Common ideas: Pick a theme for your babies’ names. Do you want them to all start with a certain letter or have a certain meaning behind them? They can even be family names. That can be the start to choosing the name of your baby.

2. Top 3: Once you figure out your theme, make a list of names that you like separately. Then come together and read the names to one another. There will be a few that you both disagree on, but in the end you will find what is best. Choose the top 3 and go with that.
