What are some ways to incorporate family tradition when you name your child?

Cupid’s Advice:

Picking a name for your baby–and agreeing with your partner on a name–is not always easy. There are tons of factors to take into consideration. Cupid is here to help you figure out how to add family tradition into your baby’s name:

1. Name them after someone: You just found out you are having a baby boy–your husband’s very first thought is to name him after himself. This is a great way to show your future son how important family is and will create a special bond between him and his father–you may also decide to name him after his grandfather. Either way, he will take comfort one day knowing he is named after someone important to the family.

2. Close friend: A good friend of yours passed away a few years ago and you are still finding ways to cope. They meant a lot to you and inspired you in many ways. Honor them by naming your child after them. Your son/daughter will have a name that represents someone who was very special to you.

3. Middle Name: If you and your husband are disagreeing on baby names, try compromising with a middle name. You want to name your child after your grandmother, but your spouse isn’t too thrilled with the name. Suggest using it as a middle name for your daughter and come up with a first name you both love.
