What should you name your baby? To some, this may seem like a silly question to ask people. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve seen women ask groups of strangers for baby name suggestions.

When I was pregnant with my son, I remember how difficult it was trying to decide what name I wanted for our son. Then take into account that there is a husband who has some say on the matter. Usually. And hopefully you can both agree on the name.
It’s a huge responsibility, really. Some of the baby names I hear lately make me feel a bit sorry for the child. They have to live their lives, going to school for 12+ years with that name, you know? Don’t make your child a target by giving them a ridiculous name.
In all seriousness though, it really isn’t always easy to come up with baby names. As someone who loves quizzes (I’m a sucker for them), I can see how a baby quiz would be quite useful in aiding new parents in coming up with the perfect baby name.
I searched for popular boy names when I was pregnant. I still like seeing what the popular girl names or gender neutral names are each year when they come out. I know my name was popular in the mid 60’s and hasn’t been since. Who knows, it may become popular again… what goes around, comes around.
I took this ‘What Should You Name Your Baby’ quiz just for fun, and since I only have one son, I took it for a girl…
What Should You Name Your Baby?
I got, Emily.
I thought if my son had been a girl I would have named her Isabella Rose, so Emily is in the same category as a very traditional name. Emily Rose does have a nice ring to it. Even though I didn’t go with a complete traditional name with my son (his middle name is traditional, though), I know I would have went more traditional for a girl.
Take the What Should You Name Your Baby quiz and let me know what name you should name your baby… even if you’re like me and done with having babies. Take it just for the fun of it!
