Try typing in your chosen name into Google. You might find the name you absolutely love is linked to a celebrity, film or novel character, news story, company or something else that’s just not your cup of tea. Check the name first before you set your heart on it.
Write It Down In Full
This may sound obvious, but have you tried writing out your baby’s name in full? How does it look written out together? Is it easy or difficult to spell? Maybe the full name looks too long, or short?
Check For Acronyms
You may have chosen a combination of names that spell out an unfortunate word or acronym. For example you might love the name Tabitha Isobel but you may want to reconsider this combination if your surname is Taylor… You wouldn’t want to inflict that on your child would you?
Talk To Family Members
At the end of the day, your baby’s name is your choice. But perhaps you’ve settled on a middle name for your little girl that you didn’t know was also the name of your mum’s great-aunt who caused havoc in the family. All families have skeletons, so maybe you want to do a quick check before you make a familial faux pas.
