What’s in a Name?

pregnant belly baby names

Thinking about baby names? It’s one of the first ways you’ll define who your baby is. It’s what your children will carry with them throughout their lives. 

When considering a name, remember this is what will be recorded in history. It will be part of your child’s legacy.

Do you have an idea already? 

Is it a family name that has been carried on for generations? Perhaps it is a beloved name of a friend. Quite simply, it may be a name that you merely encountered and liked.

It will be a name you say thousands of times during your life. It’s the sounds you will hear on your child’s graduation and wedding day. It’s the word that will be on his or her business cards as your child pursues a professional career.

Need some ideas and inspiration? Want to know what’s trendy, and what’s not?

    picking names is always hard my husband and I go back and forth until its time to go to the hospital

  2. Leola says:

    I am currently pregnant with my last child and it is a girl. I have not given any of my other girls names that are remotely similar to mine. I am allowing my ten year old to choose the first name and her middle name will be the same as mine. The new baby will be named Payton Petrece! Love it!

    I like Suri. Apple’s Siri also sounds good. But I know I won’t name my child with both! But they’re nice names!

    I knew what baby’s name would have been if it was a girl, Temperance Jayden, but had no clue for a boy. We didn’t know for sure what I was having and I ended up in the hospital 8 wks before due date with preclampsia(?). Drs. did a c-section. Our little “rock star” was sporting a full head of this gorgeous spiked strawberry-blonde hair that just fit a rocker’s look. He was 2 days old before we decided on Toby Michael. He has the same middle name as his father. And Toby sounded like a Rock Star name.
