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! A name that seems to suit a cute baby may not be suitable for a 6'3? hunk in his twenties!|Deciding on a baby's name needs much thought. It is said that a name is one of the most important things you will give your baby (apart from life itself!). Don't just choose a name that suits that cuddly little baby, that child will grow up into an adult and the name needs to be acceptable in later life and not cause embarrassment or teasing.}

The trend these days is to choose unusual or unique boy names and girl names. But is this a good idea? Maybe, but think carefully before giving junior a name that others may laugh at – the effect on a young child of being teased can be long-lasting. 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 husband and mother 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, with choosing names that don't go with the surname. Many years ago I worked with a lady with the name Hazel Nutt. She laughed it off and had the personality to do so, but some children would find such a name a burden. Each time someone met her for the first time they laughed at her name, but often I think rather than grinning, she was really clenching her teeth!
