Baby Names

Should I change my babys name?

I need some opinions. The father of my child as a baby mamma. She has a son with another man. Today I just found out that her second son (the one with the other man) name is the same name I had picked at eight weeks (I am now 20 weeks). Do you guys think I should I pick a different name or kept the same name that I’ve picked out?

I am considering changing my daughters name due to a fall out with my friend: Advice?

My daughter is almost eight months old. We’ve had a really rough start to her first year of life. She’s had four serious surgeries, and now our life is finally starting to settle down with doctors’ visits and whatnot. Before I had my daughter, I had a really close friend who I absolutely adored and trusted. We were friends for over seven years. After I had my daughter, while my daughter was in the NICU, I confided in that friend that I was going through a hard time not only with my daughter being in the hospital but also with postpartum. I thought I could talk to her because she came to me when she had postpartum, and I did everything I could to lift her spirits (calling her every day to tell her I loved her, buying concert tickets, etc.). I was wrong. She told me to get over it and that she was a single mom who had too much on her plate to worry about what I had going on. I was crushed. We are no longer friends because she was completely insensitive and horrible to me in the end. The thing is… my eight-month-old daughter has …

Am I over reacting for not wanting to name my child after my husbands ex?

So my husband and his family says that I’m over reacting by refusing to name my daughter Diana. Which is her great grandmothers name. But it’s all my oldest two kids mothers middle name. So yeah I’d rather not name my kid after my husbands ex and I’m more mad he didn’t say anything. We’ve had the name picked for months and it wasn’t until my kids asked their mom what her full name was is when I found out.

Last Name Baby Names

The 40 Least Obnoxious Last Names to Use as a First Name for Your Baby

Let’s face it: the last-name-as-first-name trend is here to stay. Just ask any Mason, Everly, or Jackson! Giving your child a traditional last name as their baby name can sound totally sleek and sophisticated—it’s why Madison was such a popular girl’s name a few years back. But it can also backfire badly, particularly when the name chosen has negative connotations (Nixon, anyone? Apparently, in Utah, yes.) Sometimes there are practical reasons for giving your baby a last name as his or her first name. If you don’t want to hyphenate, it can be a great way to pass on your maiden name without creating a total tongue-twister for your offspring’s future driver’s license. Or maybe there’s a mentor, friend, or public figure you want to honor, but their first name just doesn’t work for you. If you love their last name and want to make their legacy last, go for it!

The 28 Best Baby Names Inspired by Nature (That Aren’t *Too* Hippie)

Is there anything more beautiful than nature? Spending time outdoors can refresh, rejuvenate, heal, and inspire—and sometimes, it can even inspire some incredible baby names.  But when it comes to baby names from nature, there’s a fine line between evoking the great outdoors and sounding like you plan to raise your kids barefoot in a yurt. While natural-sounding baby names can range from classic to cool, there’s definitely such a thing as taking it too far. RELATED: The 21 Hottest Summer Baby Names “Tree,” for instance, sounds like you just looked out the window and named your kid after the first thing you saw. And a rainbow is undoubtedly beautiful, but as a name it kind of dooms her to a lifetime of underwater basket-weaving. Then there are natural baby names that can just be taken the wrong way. “Moonshine” is great when it refers to a lunar glow—but it can also make you sound like an Appalachian alcoholic. And Twilight would have been an awesome pick once, but there’s no separating it from angsty teen vampires now. That said, there are more amazing earth-loving baby names than bad ones.
