When you’re expecting a baby, there’s a lot to think about.
Suddenly you’re spending all your time picking out nursery decorations, choosing diapers, scheduling doctor’s appointments, and learning lots of new things. One of the biggest things you probably spend your time on is finding a name for your baby.
A person’s name plays a major role in their life. It influences how others see them and also how they feel about themself.
Unsurprisingly, people spend hours and hours scouring Google for the perfect first name for their babies. It’s a big deal.
But if you devote all your efforts to finding the first name, the middle name might slip through the cracks.
That’s why I’ve been putting together my middle names series. So with a quick glance, you can find the perfect middle name for your daughter!
