What are some creative ways to compromise on naming your child?

Cupid’s Advice:

It can be hard to come to a mutual agreement on what to name your child, but here are some tips and tricks:

1. Pros and cons list: There are distinct disadvantages to naming your child certain things. For instance, perhaps the initials would not be ideal (i.e. E.E.W.). Make a list of pros and cons for your top three names, and choose the one with the most pros and least cons.

2. Draw it out of a hat: If it comes down to two names and you absolutely can’t make a decision, it probably means that you really love both names. So, you can’t go wrong! Just choose one out of a hat and let randomness determine it.

3. Decide on a theme: A great way to narrow your name choices together is to choose a theme. Different categories may be traditional names, exotic names, short names, etc.
