TIPS FOR CHOOSING A WATER BABY NAME


I know choosing the perfect baby name can be an overwhelming and daunting task but it’s also such a huge honor. It’s one of the first big baby decisions you’ll make together and also one of the first special gifts you give to your precious one.

Try to enjoy the process and keep an open mind while you compile a list of potential names.

Here are some tips to help you on the journey to choosing the perfect baby name.

SAY THE WHOLE NAME OUT LOUD

Sometimes things sound better in your head. So try out the full name (first, middle and last) out loud. Does it have that special ring to it? Does it flow or is it choppy? Does it actually sound like something else?

Amy Shumer’s naming incident comes to mind. She gave her son the beautiful name  Gene Attel Fischer but didn’t realize until later that Gene Attel actually kind of sounds like you’re saying genital. Needless to say, she ended up changing the name shortly after.

THINK ABOUT THE INITIALS

Another thing that parent’s don’t always consider initially are initials. You don’t want your little one winding up with something unfortunate like Alexander Shane Smith.

CONSIDER THE MEANING OF THE NAME

Sometimes, a name’s meaning can be powerful it tips the scale. If you have a few favorite names, take a look at their meanings and it could help you decide. There are often multiple meanings and origins so if you don’t like one, you can probably find another.

CONSIDER NICKNAMES

You might come up with that most beautiful name but then everybody ends up calling your child by a shorter nickname instead. More often than not, we end up using nicknames rather than full names so it’s important to think about nicknames too and make sure you love those just as much since you may end up using them more.



WRAPPING UP WATER RELATED BABY NAMES

What was your favorite water inspired name? If you haven’t found the perfect name yet don’t forget to check out some of the other related posts for more inspiration.

Whatever baby name you choose will be perfect and fit just right. If you need a second opinion, I wouldn’t ask anybody too close to you because their opinions may hold too much weight and you begin to second guess yourself.

You could always visit mommy forums like those on baby center to ask the opinions of other moms going though the same thing.
