By Amanda Boyer

Kristen Bell and her husband Dax Shepard have had a breakthrough when it comes to what to call their second child. The duo has been trying to come up with ideas since this past summer, according to People. Since their first child was born and they fell in love with the name “Lincoln,” they began to feel the pressure on what to name the next. But now, as they wait their arrival of their new baby boy or girl, they can be prepared to say they love the names they picked out.

What are some creative ways to compromise on baby names?

Cupid’s Advice:

Did you just find out the gender of the baby you are about to have with your honey? It is time to start picking a name, but to compromise, Cupid has some tips:

1. Brainstorm: Even though one of you might already be set on a name, get a white board and split it down the middle. Write out all your ideas. After that, sit down with each other and read your ideas out loud. Eliminate from there.

2. Talk it out: Go through each of the names to discuss inspiration and meaning. Also, write out what the full name would look like on paper.

3. It is a tie: If it comes down to two choices, bring your choice to other relatives you trust like your parents or siblings. Having them vote not only makes them feel included on the decision, but it also helps you and your partner come to terms with a name.
