So you and your spouse finally have a name! Congratulations! I hope you love it. Now don’t tell anyone.
Otherwise, you can bet you will get a landslide of other options from well-meaning relatives. Or they might even start using the name to refer to your unborn child, and if you change the name, that will be unfortunate.
More than anything else, just go with the name that feels right to you. That precious infant is going to be the best thing that ever happened to you-so choose a name you’ll love to sing and say every single day of your life.
Try typical parent language: “Hannibal Hayes, have you done your homework?” Check to see if you like how the words roll off your tongue. Sing “Hush Little Baby” and see if Abigail Anne sounds sweet. Think of a name that will make your child smile when the teacher calls it out on the first day...
