When you’re about to welcome a new baby, you have so many things to think about.
Suddenly you need to consider things like scented or unscented baby wipes, diaper brands, and swaddling.
And, of course, you have to decide what to name your baby.
A person’s name can greatly influence how others see her. But, a name can also determine how your daughter feels about herself.
Considering a name’s importance, it’s no wonder so many people spend hours searching for the perfect name for their babies. But if you devote all your time to finding a first name, you might end up settling on a middle name.

I’ve compiled these from baby name databases, parent discussion forums, and other sources then whittled them down to the ones I personally think sound the best.
