How To Decide On The Perfect Baby Name

Whimsical nature baby names

It can be a challenge to pick the perfect baby name! You may have to agree with a partner, or you may be feeling pressure from your family to hear their choices or pass along a specific family name. It can be overwhelming, but ultimately the decision is YOURS (and your partners!).

Here are my 7 top tips for choosing a baby name you won’t hate later:

  1. Don’t pick anything too out there (unique names are cool, just don’t pick something completely absurd).
  2. Keep the spelling simple (or your child will forever unnecessarily be spelling their name for everyone and anyone).
  3. Consider any family names you’d like to pass down or any family members you would like to honor.
  4. Think about whether the first, middle & last name flow together.
  5. Don’t forget to check if the initials spell anything (At first I wanted to choose an M middle name for a boy, but that would spell PMS and I just don’t want to give school bullies fuel).
  6. Consider all possible nicknames (perhaps not a dealbreaker, but important to think about!).
  7. Short list a few favorites and try them out for a few days each. Say them out loud. You’ll notice if it feels “right” to call your unborn child by that name.

There we have it. 101 whimsical nature baby names to love.

If you are expecting, my sincerest congratulations!
