Need to choose that special name? Do it with grace, and you will give your child a name to be proud of.

  1. Remember that your child will have this name for their whole life, and it is your first gift to your child, so make it something special.
  1. Consider personal history and traditions. Your family may have particular naming traditions you want to continue. Some families like naming a son after his father, and some families have naming "schemes", like using the same first letter for all of their children's names. Whichever tradition you use, make sure each child feels unique and has an individual name.
  2. Write lists of names you love, people you want to honor, names that have special meanings, etc. (both you and your partner should do this). Compare the lists - are there names you both love? Maybe your partner likes a name that you can't stand. Cross off the names you don't like, and add names you do like to your list. These lists probably will change over time.
  3. Make sure it's a name that you both love. Try saying your child's name over and over to see if you'll get tired of hearing it. As a parent, you'll be saying it a lot.
  4. Be aware of gender affiliations. In these modern times, names are often not exclusively male or female.
  • Avoid naming a child a name that is more typically the opposite gender kind of name.
  • Historically male names are usually more acceptable for girls. It may not be clear on looking at the name alone if your child is male or female, and that may cause confusion.
  • Some names are neutral in gender or sound masculine, but can be spelled in a feminine manner. Names such as these have their own problems, as well as advantages.
  1. Will the name age well? One very important factor is if the name will age gracefully. What fits a baby or young child may not fit an older individual.
  2. Make sure the name sounds good with your last name. You may want to avoid using a name whose last letter is the same as the first letter in your last name
  3. Decide whether you want a traditional, popular, or unique name. Consider carefully if you want your child's name to stand out, or be conventional and classy, stand the test of time, or be flashy and make a statement.
  4. Consider 'ethnic names' carefully. Unfortunately, a name that clearly marks an individual as part of a group that often meets with discrimination may make the child's life harder, such as finding a job. But it could help foster pride in that child's background. So pick carefully.
  5. Consider names inspired by your beliefs carefully. In many ways, this is a beautiful way to affirm your religious beliefs, or your hopes for the child. But sometimes the child grows up, and it does not suit them. He or she may convert, or may not embody his or her name.
  6. Decide ahead of time when you want to reveal the name. Some couples wait until the baby is born, while others tell their family, friends, and anyone who asks right away when the pregnancy is announced.
  7. Think about how it might be shortened. Lots of people shorten their names, and you need to choose one that you like, and that will still sound good with your surname.
  8. Spelling counts. Sometimes there are several variations on a name, and different spellings of the same name. A unique spelling may help your child stand out, but may make for headaches when it comes to correcting people and paperwork! In addition, your child may never be able to buy something with his or her name on it, such as novelties as embossed pencils.
  9. Consider if you really want the names of your children - particularly if they are the same sex - to have the same initials. (Although many families do this, and are happy with the results.
  1. Ignore the rules! A safe, traditional, nice-sounding name is all well and good, and perhaps most desirable for most parents. But there's a lot of room for the unusual, unique, and offbeat, and the choice is yours.
  2. Think about your hero. Role models, whether real or fictional, can be a source of inspiration. "Hermione" has suddenly become popular with the writing of the "Harry Potter" series, for instance. If you admire Mother Theresa, maybe you have a little Theresa on the way. Of course, realize that some heroes are controversial, and some don't cross cultures well.
  3. If they are born with curly hair, don't name them after famous curly haired people. They are likely to grow out of the curls and the name.
  4. Try out the introduction test. Finally, once you've narrowed down your name choices, introduce yourself as your child using only the first and last name.
