Parents seem to have high expectations from their children. That’s why they name their newborn babies Messiah, which means the one who will save us according to the Hebrew tradition. Jesus Christ was the christian Messiah who came to earth to save people from their sins. Would you expect your baby to do the same?

Another fast rising baby name is King, probably because parents like to link their babies with royalty to express a sense of heritage, power and respect. Parents are watching too much Game of Thrones if you ask me, the HBO TV series where literaly everyone is fighting to claim the Iron Throne, leading thousands of people in battle and endless wars. Is this the kind of King you imagine your baby to be?

According to the Social Security Administration’s annual list of popular baby names, Major is the baby name that jumped the most spots. The name reveals superiority among the rest and gives the aura of someone who is capable of doing great things, somebody who will achieve the highest potential in his life.

However, giving baby names full with expectations can be harmful in their future life, experts agree. It can lead to anxiety and stress for the children that will strive to live up to the high level standards that their parents have given them subconsciously. We may have moved away from naming babies after Presidents, such as Jackson, Jefferson or Madisons, but we have turned into other forms of pressure by names. Would you ever name your baby Pilot just because you envisage your son to be a pilot one day?
