When you first heard you were having twins, did you ever think that choosing baby names would be so hard? Instead of mulling over one name, you now had to decide on two! Maybe you’re one of the few that have their child’s names picked out by the time you reach high school.
Or maybe you’re the type that keeps the sex of their babies “hush hush” until delivery — and you decide on the names right in the hospital bed. Regardless of where and when the names are chosen, it’s a big decision that your little ones will live with for the rest of their lives — so it’s very important!
Pregnancy & Baby has compiled a great baby-naming “No No” that all parents should read. It provides a little rule-of-thumb for the baby naming selection; i.e. all last names are not created equal, choose a name you’d like to have yourself. Sounds obvious, doesn’t it?
If popularity is a factor, here are the Top 100 most popular baby names of 2011. Need something a little more off-key? Moms Who Think has an interesting approach to the name selection: do you think your little ones will be future chefs, class clowns or athletes? Future life coach, lawyer or high achiever? It’s certainly fun to dream!
