What is the best way to select a name for a baby?

This can be a real challenge for myself and my husband (somehow someway a challenge for our in-laws and relatives too!). Countless names would come across our minds and we would repeatedly ask each other What do you think of this name, what do you think of that name? What if the baby is a boy, what if the baby is a girl. But trust me, this is all so normal.

My best advice to all new moms out there is to not take too long a time to come up with a name. And definitely think of a name before the baby comes around. Stick to a name, and fall in love with it. Basically, consider if you want your baby to have a unique name, if the name sounds good with the surname, if it has a special meaning or a story behind it. In addition to that, you can think about your own passions, experiences, people you know or you’ve met in the past, and ancestors in the family for example. This might give you an idea of a good and meaningful name.
