3. Think about the nicknames. Take a look at all the potential nicknames people could give your child and make sure you not only like them but that you feel good about how they match with your last name.

4. Write out the initials. You may want to make sure that you aren't giving your baby initials that spell something rude or odd such as Aaron Simon Samuels or Claire Octavia Wilson.

5. Add a little diversity. If you aren't sure about a very unique name or a very traditional name, balance it out with a middle name. Pick a conventional name for the first name and a unique name for the middle name, or vice versa.

6. Consider sibling names. You may want to give your children names that all have the same first initial or names that sound well together since they'll often be said in the same breath. Plus, it may be difficult to explain to your kids why one has a super unique name (say, Zaphon) when his brother's name is Bob.

7. Give thought to the uniqueness. Unique names are creative and fun. But, a name that is too unique can be tough to get through life with. If it is too difficult to spell or pronounce, others may avoid saying it. The child may have รับตั้งชื่อมงคล to repeat it and spell it out over and over again.

8. Check for multiple spellings. You may not be sure รับตั้งชื่อมงคล of a specific name, but when you change the spelling, it can make all the difference. It can also make a difference in how easy or difficult it is for your child to spell and explain.

9. Don't be afraid to change a tradition. Some last names have made their way into the world of first names (Lennon, Avery). And, some boy's names are becoming more and more common for girls (Hayden, Jordan).

10. Realize your geography may matter. You might love a name that is geographically bound, perhaps รับตั้งชื่อ to a local celebrity or location. But, it may be looked at differently in different areas of the country or the world which may bother you or not.

You may also want to consider how well your family handles change. If you anticipate your family becoming upset because you're going to break a tradition, you may want to warn them in advance. That doesn't mean you have รับตั้งชื่อลูก to tell the name you plan รับตั้งชื่อมงคล to use. It just means they'll have time to get used to the idea of change. Be understanding if they are disappointed, but stay firm in your commitment to your baby's name.

Sometimes arguments can get heated. If you can't decide on a name together, you can agree on another way to name the baby. For example, some families allow the mother to pick the girl's names and the father to pick the boy's names. Or the mom can choose the name of the first baby and the dad can name the second baby. You may also agree รับตั้งชื่อลูก to have someone else such as a family member, choose a name. Perhaps each grandparent can submit a name, and then decide on one as a family. The good news is that baby naming doesn't usually get to this point.

You can give your child a name that is full of meaning and tradition, has historical importance, or embodies a free spirit. But, you'll also want to try to choose a name that will fit your baby through infancy, childhood, and adulthood. Whatever you decide, if it's a name that you and your partner love and feel really good about, chances are your child will love it, too. And, don't forget that choosing your baby's name is a memorable time and a special decision, so trust yourself and enjoy it..
