You’re going to be a parent. You can’t deny it any longer. You’ve been wondering what you’re going to name your child for as long as you’ve known about the existence of babies, and now is finally here—your child is here!
There are many things to consider when choosing a baby name, but one of the most important is how your choice will impact the life of that child. If you choose a name that’s difficult for them to pronounce, wordy, or otherwise not easy to say aloud, they’ll have trouble communicating their needs and wants. If you choose a name that has no meaning behind it (or worse: an abbreviation), they’ll grow up feeling like they don’t have any identity outside of what they were given at birth.
Luckily, we’re here to help! Our team of experts has carefully combed through thousands of names and narrowed down our favorites to this list. We know every single one of these names will make your baby proud and proud parents proud—so go ahead and check them out!
