Choosing a name for a baby is said to be one of the most important things that you can do for baby – yes it is that important. So (be careful|take care} when thinking of a name, and remember that you are choosing a name for a baby that will grow up to be an adult. The name that sounds cute for a little child may not suit a strapping six footer later in life!|It has been said that choosing a name for your baby is the most important thing you can do for him apart from actually giving him life. Yes, it's that important, so when choosing a boy's or girl's name please take a lot of care. And remember you are choosing a name for a baby that will grow up to be an adult!

It is said that a name is one of the most important things you will give your baby (apart from life itself!).

Lately many parents give their offspring made-up names. They think it will make their child unique, but she or he is already unique. Your chid is unlikely to thank you in later life, especially if the spelling on official documents is incorrect. Famous people may get away with choosing baby names like �Apple' or �Moon', but these children probably won't be subjected to teasing in the playground.

As an alternative to a made-up name, some parents choose a traditional name but with different spelling. A friend of ours says only her mother and husband spell her name correctly! A name that is spelt differently with still sound the same, and later in life your son will be asked if his parents could spell!

Be careful, too, when choosing names that don't suit the last name. I once worked with a girl called Hazel Nutt. She had a good sense of humour and had the personality to brush off all the comments. Every time she met someone new there was laughter, but often I think rather than grinning, she was really clenching her teeth!

Try to choose a name that your child will be proud of in later life.
