    Hello there everyone! How are you all doing? I hope that this finds you all well. You see I have been thinking about this thing for a while now. How do people come up with their childrens name? Like it is very intriguing to me. For exmaple my dh and I choose the name Hugh for my son. We were expecting a daughter and were thinking of a girl name but then the doctors told us that it will be a boy. So we started reading about cool names and things like that. The name Hugh seemed the most interesting one. It had it’s origin in France, and it was used by the nobles! It’s meaning is spirit, mind and heart. So I thought it was pretty cool and my DH agreed. THat’s how we ended up with the name Hugh! What about you? How did you come up with your babies name? Thank you all in advance for your time. God bless you all!


    This is interesting discussion. Many couples find it hard to come up with names. Everyone will have the dream of having a child. But when it comes to choosing names it becomes a whole different story. But in my case. I started discussing names with my then boyfriend. that is before we got married. So when the babies came by. We were already knowing the names they will have. In instance. The first two children had their second names from my husband side. Then the third child will be from mu side. It will be like the child is mine. But I also participated in naming the first two children. like o gave the first names. Then my husband gave the second names,. that is easy if you look it my way. However different people have different methods of dealing with that situation. But now that you have gotten a name. It is good.

    Our Son Josh got his name from my dad, Joshua! I know that’s a little generic but my Dad was an amazing man and my husband and I felt that it was fitting to pass that on to our child and it fits him perfectly!


    I don’t have a baby right now. I have been through infertility. And I still am battling with it. However I think I can participate. Since I belong to a family. I can help by using how my parents chose names for me and my brother. I can say my dad is the one who is good at choosing names. I even thought when I finally get my children. I will tell him to chip in, haha. So I am Calilah and my younger brother is Cameroun. He probably took these names online. In which I am so in love with,. I do not regret anything with them. Perhaps you can search online. There are many websites that can help you with that task. Most if them tell you the origin and the meaning. As I can see that you followed up to know of the same. But more likely I like name countries. Like my brothers name or Egypt. They just sound cool for me. Or you can give direction names like North also known as Nory or South. At the end of the day there is a wide range you can pick from.


    One of the difficulties with choosing a baby name is that while you are researching the new names of this generation, many other expectant parents are doing the same. Often, the name that you thought was going to be so rare and original ends up being one of the most popular names for that year. There are some ways you can avoid falling into that trap while still finding a unique name. Examine what unique means to you. Look at the advantages. Look at the pros offered with the choice of a unique name. Remember to also consider the possible disadvantages. Determine what it is that you want to incorporate into your baby’s name. Decide if you will be appeasing family members by handing down a traditional family name. Consider the use of nicknames that may be associated with the name you choose. Take into consideration the use of religion as a way to determine a name.
