It goes without saying that expecting a baby takes a lot of planning.
Plus, you need to think of a name for your baby!
A person’s name plays a big part in how others see him. It also influences how your son will think about himself one day. (No pressure!)
So it’s no wonder Google becomes a new parent’s best friend. You can spend hours looking online for the perfect first name.
