Choosing a baby name is one of the first decisions parents have to make. Decisions that go into choosing a baby name include: Do you want to honor a relative? Do you want to choose a name that’s obviously a baby boy name or a baby girl name, or do you want to pick a unisex baby name? Do you want to choose a unique or popular name? Do you want to choose person or subject that’s trending such as a celebrity, superhero or hot topic like cryptocurrency? Eth or Bitcoin anyone?

Some parents want to choose something traditional and classic that most people can pronounce and spell right of the bat. Other parents are looking for more unusual and unique baby names, to stand out from the crowd.

Here are some considerations and tips for choosing a baby name

  • Write out the initials
  • Think about nicknames
  • Consider sibling names
  • Research and analyze name meanings
  • Consider uniqueness and popularity
  • Check spelling options
  • Use the middle name to balance out the first name
  • Be careful with trendy names that may pass, become negative (think cancel culture or worse), lose meaning over time
  • Say it out loud
  • Most name associations from your past won’t last (some might)

Consider these names:

  • Family Names
  • Cultural or Ethnic Names
  • Place Names
  • Names from Pop Culture
  • Religious Names
  • Season Names
  • Nature Names
  • Color Names
  • Mythology or Superhero Names
  • Astrology Names
  • History
  • Unisex Names
