Choosing Baby’s name is serious business! Consider that Baby may not like their name when they grow up. Remember that some names can be shortened to give a nick-name that may, or may not, sound right. Jennifer is often shortened to just Jen. Robert is often changed to Bob. Kathryn can be either Kathy or simply, Kate. If you do decide to be original and choose an obscure name like ‘Precious‘, then do consider if the name may cause embarrassment for you child when they grow older. If you can’t decide, look for names on the Web or buy a book that offers a choice of names and then go with the gut – usually your intuition will guide you.
