Baby Names for Girls and Boys of English Origin – F
So many choices for baby names and you already feel lost? We feel you! Finding the perfect name for your baby can be a daunting task. But it doesn’t have to be! Find some time every week to go through names, discuss it with your other significant half, and start creating short lists.
A tip that always works with parents who are searching the ideal baby name is to print out our extensive lists of names and meanings and assign cross out the ones that you don’t like. Then go back and go through the list again, crossing some more names out. Try not to disagree too much at this stage, as you will have plenty of time to do that later!
Once you have created your shortlist, assign a number next to each name and try to visualise your baby having this name. Imagine you and your partner calling him or her. Try to get a clear picture with as many details as possible. If you find this too hard, try to relax and come back later. Finding the perfect name for your baby girl or baby boy needs time and jumping into quick decisions might cause some misunderstandings in the future.
