    Baby names help

    Need inspiration for baby names? Here comes the fun bit! You may already have a favourite name, or perhaps you’re waiting until you meet baby face-to-face. Either way, whether you’re after gender neutral names, popular names or unique names, it doesn’t hurt to give it some thought before your baby arrives.

    • Consider whether to go for a traditional or unique name.
    • Consider the meaning of the names—perhaps in different languages.
    • Consider what the initials will be when put together.
    • Consider how the first name sounds with the last name.
    • Consider how the name could be shortened and possible nicknames.
    • Consider how popular the name currently is.
    • Think about people to name baby after.
    • Think about names from your culture.
    • Consider how it sits with any sibling names.
    • Consider whether gender neutral names are important to you.
    • Think about middle names—second or third favourites can still make the cut this way.
    • Consider how the name works for a child and an adult.
    • Consider alternative spellings of popular names.
    • Think about the longevity of the name. Is it a waning trend or a name both you and your child will love?

    • Once you’ve got a few ideas on the shortlist, another fun task you could start thinking about is getting baby's nursery ready. See our checklist for help
