When you find out that a little bundle (or bundles) of joy is on the way, there are most certainly a wide range of feelings that bubble up. There is excitement and hope. Elation and sheer amazement will follow. Soon, the logistics come into play: where will the baby sleep? Will I choose a color scheme for the baby’s nursery? But wait! You realize that you have been calling your baby “Baby.” This impending family member will need a name.
Names are very important. They stay with you for a lifetime. A name can identify a cultural heritage or evoke a sense of family and belonging. The baby’s first name is the one that is usually focused on, of course, first. This name is how your child will be identified to the whole world. This is part of your child’s personal identity and brand. As for the last name, that will be another conversation based on who you are and what your family situation and traditions or belief systems are. The middle name can be trickier to determine.
Enter the middle name generator. It is a wonderfully resourceful tool to guide and assist you on your path to completing your baby’s name. It is a really fun generator that gives you the option to add only the first name, the first and last name, and additional information such as how many middle names you may desire. You can even select boy, girl, or unisex as choices to narrow down the options available. Once the middle name generates, the choices will even show what the initials will be. Unfortunately, this is sometimes overlooked or unrealized by parents and turns into a target for bullies as the child advances in school.
Consider how you will use the middle name. Will it be spoken as part of the first name or follow the first name on a routine basis? Perhaps the middle name will only come out in those parenting situations when you are not pleased with something your almost perfect child may have done. In the latter case, the last name will likely follow. Also, keep this in mind if you are someone who enjoys giving personalized gifts.
While you are taking care of regular daily life, a career, your home, any wonderful children you already have, and planning for your new addition to the family, you definitely need to take some time to care for yourself. Watch this video and make time for an opportunity to relax and meditate for a few moments (always seek your healthcare practitioner’s advice before beginning any new activities.)
When it comes time to search for the perfect baby names, sit back, put up your swollen ankles, and search with ease for the often left until the last-minute middle name. Have some fun with it and take your time. When the right name pops up on the screen, you will know. The way the names sound together when they roll off of your tongue will make your heart smile. Congratulations.
