Cupid’s Advice

Choosing a fitting name for your new bundle of joy can be extremely difficult, and when there are two minds in the mix, sometimes it entails compromise. Cupid has some advice:

1. Meet In The Middle: Middle names are a fantastic way to compromise on baby names. If you believe your partner’s suggestion is too heavy or too odd for a first name, you can still pay proper homage to his wishes by making it a middle name.

2. Save It For The Next One: If you’re planning on having more than one child and you are passionate about a name choice for your baby, make a deal to use your beau’s choice for the next little one. Your partner must know you actually intend to honor that promise, otherwise it’s a failed bargaining technique.
