Preparing for a new baby is one of the most exciting, yet busiest, times of your entire life.
You have so many things to figure out, like what to feed your baby, where she’ll sleep, and what to name your baby.
A name is a really big deal — did you know that it can actually influence how other people see you? And even how you see yourself?
Considering how important a person’s name is, it’s no surprise that people will happily search Google for hours and hours looking for the best first name for their babies.
