Derek, Jacob, Daniel, Steve? No how about Christopher? Perfect!

There is nothing more exciting than finding out you are going to have a child. One of the most exciting parts of having a child is getting to decide on the name of your new child. Unfortunately, this is also one of the most difficult tasks of preparing for a new child. The best advice that someone could give to a parent deciding on a name is to put themselves in their child’s shoes. A child’s name is something that is permanent. They are going to have to live with the name for the rest of their lives. This is why you cannot just pick a name that is going to look great on a cute little baby. You have to also pick a name that a grown individual can be proud of as well.

A parent also needs to think about what kind of nicknames or jokes can spring up with the name they are considering for their child. You want to make sure you are not setting your child up to be bullied when they get in school or start playing with other kids. You also want to make sure that the name you are interested in works with your last name. You do not want to give your child a name that runs any risk that they are going to get made fun of.

A long, complicated, or unique name may seem like fun for you; but it is not going to be fun for your child. You have to think about the fact that your child is going to need to know how to say their name when they start learning to talk. Furthermore, it is going to be one of the first things they learn how to spell and write. The last thing you want to do is set them up with a name that is going to be hard to spell, write, and say.

So far for 2013 these are the most popular baby names for boys and girl in ranking order:

1.  Liam                           1.  Emma

2.  Noah                          2.  Olivia

3.  Mason                        3.  Sophia

4.  Ethan                         4.  Isabella

5.  Jack                           5.  Ava

Trendy and classic celebrity names may or may not be a good idea. It is important to think about how unique you want your child’s name to be. If you name your child after a trending famous celebrity, it is important to realize that lots of other parents are doing the same thing. This means that your child may spend their life sending in classrooms with lots of other individuals with the same name.
