Baby Names – A Measured Decision

By Frederick Von Waltzembourg

Wow! So you have a baby on the way. Do you know whether you’re having a boy or a girl? Well either way most parents have decided on a name whether certain or not before they eventually find out the sex. So you’ll need to have an idea about which girls names and which boys names you like before the special day happens.

Well, there are many ways of approaching this. Many families find it common practice for the firstborn son to be named after the father. Likewise it is common for a family Christian name apart from the father to be chosen so many would be reaching for their family tree at such a time.

But say you are not overawed by the names within your family network. You could take inspiration from browsing through name meanings or what is around you like the celebrities gracing our magazines. It is no coincidence that the name Courtney became popular the years post Courtney Cox becoming a big star in the sitcom Friends.

Trending in names has been recorded within a popularity index for decades and has witnessed certain noticeable themes within its history. Back in Victorian times, names were from a more biblical origin. One very definite trend noticeable in the 1930′s was the popular German name Adolf not maintaining its popularity.

A new baby’s Christian name should best fit his/her surname which is why this must be thought of during the choosing of the first name. Some choose to ignore this, such as Gary Neville’s grandparents who called their son Neville Neville.

It is important for the full initials of the child not to slip your mind. It would not be kind on little Isobel Rachael Anderson to have the initials IRA growing up in Ireland for example.

A mistake that I would suggest is made too often in recent times would be creating a name that is too unique so that is maybe difficult to remember difficult o spell or pronounce.

The only thing that matters is it you and your partner are happy with your selection. Do not feel bullied by traditions or customs but you always have the middle name to please any family members who may be looking for a thought at this time.
