Misc_: Picking a Name for your Baby
Some friends of mine are going through this very challenging part of parenthood right now. Picking a name for your child is definitely one of the most tricky things you have to decide.
The thing about it is that it makes it real. You could argue that it is not so much selecting a name as admitting the inevitable. Giving a name to your unborn child cements it firmly in reality.
I was reminded that there is an excellent baby name database to help you decide and give you some background on the name. You can try it here: http://www.kitt.net/babynames.html
Some people believe that you should only decide on the name of your child when you meet him or her, I couldn't agree less, the name you decide will always be right for your child irrespective of what he or she looks like, remember kids, it is personality that counts not looks, the personality of your child could well be influenced by the name you give him or her, think about it that way.
