What Your Baby Name Choice Says About You

By Devan McGuinness |

If making and growing and raising a baby doesn’t seem overwhelming enough, what about the thought of giving them a name that they will have forever? One that you love, has meaning to you, but won’t make your child confess his hate for you later in life.

Talk about pressure, right?

I love unique names — you wont find my kids on any top 100 list and I love that (my name is pretty unique too).  I have worried that they will grow up hating their names and have wondered what the choices I’ve made says about me and my husband. Since we are the ones that fell in love with the names and chose them for our kids — that has to mean something.
