Organic Baby Names: Oh, what to name the baby! Here’s a suggestion: perhaps, you could try naming the baby after an Instagram filter!
“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet,” Shakespeare said.
Finding the perfect name is important.
Naming your baby can be one of the most fun experiences or the most hair-raising if all your relatives and friends get involved. To help you in this process, we looked up the most popular names of 2017 according to www.babycenter.com Their data comes from over 500,000 parents who shared the names of their babies in 2017.
The baby center also shared some great ideas for inspiration. They say consider nature: Autumn, Ash, Fern, and Forest; old fashioned: Agnes, Leroy, Clara, Walter; space: Astrid, Apollo, Jupiter, Jet; and places: Brooklyn, Berlin, Denver, Dallas.
I personally like their suggestion regarding Instagram filters: Aden, Amaro, Ginza, Gingham, Moon, or Mayfair!
But, they warn, you may want to consider if a name is too popular. You will be at the playground; call your child’s name, and 5 children could turn around. Or, watch for embarrassing initials. For instance, Willow Theresa Flores may not be happy with you when she enters the teenage years. Zachary Ian Thomas would definitely not like his name at 16. Nicknames could be funny as well: Harold Chin could easily be Harry Chin, Roseanne Posey could be Rosie Posey, Robert Banks would be Rob Banks, and Katherine Pratt may be Kat Pratt. Embarrassing e-mails may pop up as well. Consider Thomas Roll may be Troll@whereIwork.com Oh my!
The second trimester is the most popular time to decide on a name which is when parents discover the sex of their baby. Knowing the sex, isn’t so necessary though. 43% of parents pick both a boy and girl name and 1% have a unisex name ready.
Whatever you decide, have fun with it. This time is one of the most glorious times in your life!
