Baby Names...

Dear Ajay Naana & Ranamma,

Parents want to give their children unique baby names. Doing so is easier said than done; in choosing a unique baby name, make sure you make the best choice.

All parents want their children to have unique baby names. Parents prefer a more distinctive name for their children to set them apart and in doing so; they sometimes give unusual baby names.

Finding unique baby boy names or unique baby girl names is not easy and is relatively a very hard endeavor as parents have to consider a lot of factors.

In searching for a unique baby name for your child, you have to take into consideration factors like how the chosen name would go with your surname, the name you choose need not only be distinctive but it should also not be funny. Remember also to keep it short, easy to memorize and write down so that other people will easily remember it.

Make sure that the unique baby name you choose is something that your children would be proud of for the rest of their lives.

Tips to Help you Come up with Baby Names

Avoid names that are complicated to spell. Make it simple and easy to remember. The name you choose will define your child’s future so be very careful about it; what’s cute at age 5 may not be cute anymore by the time your child is a teenager or an adult.

If you will use foreign names, make sure you know its etymological background.

Experiment with joining the father’s and mother’s name and see what you come up with. Optionally, you can combine the letters of your names to arrive at a unique baby name for your child.

You can also try to create anagrams from a combination of the parent’s names to come up with a new and unique baby. You can also use the name of a place, seasons or flowers as your baby’s name. Try to change the spelling of a name by changing/adding/subtracting 1 or 2 letters at the most.

If you will use a familiar first name for your child, combine it with a unique second/middle name. After making the final choice, do the following quality assurance steps to make doubly sure that you are not going to embarrass your darling baby in the future.Say the name aloud at different voice levels to make sure that the chosen name is euphorically pleasing.

Make sure that the First Name-Surname combination does not result into a funny phrase!Finally, visualize your child at the age of 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 to make sure that the name you have decided to give him/her is timeless.

Whatever and whichever unique baby name you decide on for your child, do not forget that it is about the child and not you. Never give an unusual name to your child simply because it is the fad of the season. Always bear in mind that the name you give will last for a lifetime. You should therefore be very careful in choosing baby boy names or baby girl names when it’s time to give a name to your darling baby.

Dear Uncle & Aunty,

We just came back from maternity class (2nd week). It was very useful & informative. Today instructor - Melissa discussed about stages of labor, breathing exercises & medication used during labor. We liked the article on selecting names for little baby. Thank you for sharing it with us. Uncle, you and aunty please suggest a name for our little baby girl. We will make sure the name is good in all regards - short, simple, good meaning and easy pronunciation. Hope you are having good time. We are walking regularly & eating healthy.

With Love, Ranamma
