Baby Names and Baby Name Origins

Whether you're expecting or welcoming your baby into your family right now, choosing the right baby names is one of the most difficult choices you have to make. After all, you are picking a name that's going to be with the baby for a long time. Brainstorming the perfect baby names won't be an easy job. You might want to check out the names meanings or the baby name origins before making a selection. You might prefer to choose a name from lists of top names or you might want to avoid these names altogether. So let Birth Cards, the expert on pregnancy stationery store and pregnancy announcements, help give you some great tips.

Getting Inspiration for your Pregnancy Announcement Cards

You can look at websites and in books full of babies names but you may never find one that really grabs you. Instead, don't force the name selection process. Just be open to inspiration. One of the Birth-Cards staff members remembers choosing the name of her daughter after watching a Disney movie. She just loved the name and said to herself, "When I have a little girl, that's the name she's going to get." Two years later, her daughter was born and she named her Ariel after the Little Mermaid.

Inspiration doesn't just come from movies nor does it always come in advance. Another one of our staff members got his birth name on the spur of the moment. When one of the doctors came into check on his mom after the delivery, the doctor just happened to be named Mark. The name stuck and he's had to tell the story to everyone, along with a warning to make sure your obstetrician doesn't have a weird first name.

Other Avenues for Your Announcement Pregnancy

While inspiration works some of the time, you might not want to make snap decisions on baby names for your children without looking into those Baby Name Origins. If you want something with international flair, cute names baby girl might include Bonita which is Spanish for beautiful or Rahima which is Arabic for compassionate. When you're looking at boy baby names, you might want to avoid a name like Hayden that comes from German and means heathen. The good news is that we have partnered with a number of websites that provide easy-to-navigate lists of baby names that you can use to narrow your searches and to find the perfect choice for your little one.

Going with Popularity Baby Names

Baby Name Origins might be fun to look at but they probably aren't going to be that useful when you're trying to decide on a name. You might instead want to consider the most popular names either because you want to choose one of them or because you want to avoid them. You can find that information on the sites we've suggested as well. Thanks to these charts you could choose to name your child Ethan or Isabella, two of the most popular choices in 2008, or you pick more unique baby names like Seraphina or Huckleberry, two more examples of celebrity options.
