Choosing A Baby Name Can Be Tough Without This Guide
April 04, 20163 min read
Naming our children can be intimidating. Our friends and family have their own opinions and won’t hesitate to make sure we know them.
Choosing the “perfect” name is tricky. You won’t see your baby’s face until after they’re born, so you likely don’t know if they're a “Jake” or a “Johnny.” Maybe you have several older relatives you feel inclined to honor, but you’re not sure if “Muriel” fits a newborn in 2016. Maybe your husband insists on naming your son “Tyrion,” but you cringe while picturing the conversations with the playgroup moms about naming your son after a character from Game of Thrones.
