When you become a parent, there's a whole new set of decisions that you'll find yourself making. Cloth diapers or disposables? Breastfeeding or formula (or a mixture of the two)? Bassinet or crib? What color should the nursery be? What will they wear for their coming-home-from-the-hospital outfit?
And, of course, what will their name be?
While all of these decisions are obviously important, choosing a name for your child is something that will, in most cases, affect every single day of the rest of their lives. It's a pretty big deal, to say the least.
There are so many different things to take into account when choosing a name. Do you want to honor any family members? Do you want to determine a nickname ahead of time? How will the name be spelled? Does it matter to you whether it's a popular name, or are you looking for something a bit more off the beaten path?
