When we were thinking of baby names for BG we knew what name we wanted for a girl but it was the boys names we got stuck on. It was hard to choose as we didn’t know if we were having a boy or a girl.
I knew from a really early age what name I wanted for it I had a girl, of course we went through girls names but ultimately I my choice won. Though we were stuck for middles names we decided not to go with parents names as I couldn’t be doing with the arguments so eventually we just went for a name we thought sounded good with the first name we had chosen.
I also had a boy’s name I liked but OH vetoed it so we had to make a list of the names we liked. My favourites were Ollie, Harry and Toby.
It was really important for us that a name suited our child throughout their whole lifetime. Some names sound really cute on a child but don’t suit an adult. I won’t give an example as I will probably offend someone!
We also checked the initials to make sure they didn’t make a funny word.
I think it’s really hard to know what name is right until your baby is born. We knew with BG we had chosen the right name it suited her.
How did you choose your child’s name?
