Why is it sooooo hard to pick a name for your baby? There are lots of names we LIKE but to pick just one name that we both LOVE is quite a challenge.
I think one of the reasons it is so difficult is that it has to be a name that both parents agree on and like equally, this can be tricky as we both associate different names with different things. A name I like can easily be pinned to someone or something that he doesn't like and vice versa.
Another challenge of finding the perfect name is choosing something unique but something your child can live with, through their whole life, not just as a baby or child but as well as a teenager, adult and eventually even a pensioner! It needs to suit all ages and grow with them and its your responsibility.
I think the name you give your baby is a really important part of preparing for their arrival and can be a lot of fun, but when it comes to actually settling on one name it doesn't come easy.
