It can get overwhelming trying to plan all the different parts of impending parenthood. You need to prepare the nursery, figure out a feeding and sleeping routine, and decide on your baby’s name.

A person’s name significantly influences how others perceive them. It also determines a lot about what your son will think about himself.

Considering how large a role a person’s name plays in their life, it makes sense people spend so much time looking at baby names.
