When trying to decide on baby names, look for these key elements:
- Does the name sound good with your last name?
- Would you get tired of hearing that name over and over?
- Is it a name that is too different where it could lead to many people pronouncing it wrong?
- Do you like the name, but hate the spelling?
- Is the name liable to get your child teased a lot in school?
If you still can’t decide on a name, try narrowing your list of baby names with your spouse.
