How to decide on the best name for your baby 

Congratulations! You’re going to be a parent! 🥳 

Becoming a parent is a big deal, so it’s no surprise that this transition comes with making a lot of big decisions. Picking your baby’s name is only the first of many big decisions that you’ll be making for this new person in your life. Although this will ultimately be your decision, you can follow a few easy guidelines to help pick the absolute best name for your baby.

1. Get inspiration from family. 🌳

Take a look at your family tree and see if any of your distant (or close) relatives have names that you love. This is one of the easiest ways to gain inspiration for you baby’s name and it will always feel like you chose a name with a deeper meaning behind it. 

2. Research popular names for inspiration. 🤩

Another great way to get inspiration for baby names is by reading a list of names for inspiration (kind of like this one!) It may not feel just as meaningful to pick a name simply because you like the sound of it, but you can also research the meaning or origin of any names you like and pick the one that resonates the most with your beliefs and values. 

3. Go with your gut. 👍🏼

Ultimately this is your decision, so the best thing you can do is just go with your gut! If you love the sound of a certain name, then you probably love it for a reason. If you’ve found a baby name that just feels right, then you’ve probably found the perfect one for your baby.

Deciding on your baby’s name is a huge decision that new parents have to make and it is definitely normal to feel overwhelmed by this choice. Take some time to think about the types of names you like and why, and definitely do some research. Hey, at least you’ve got 9 months to make up your mind! 😉
