  • The first name of the child should be something that has meaning. It should stand for something and have substance. It's going to be the name that they're going to be known for, for the rest of their lives. It should be something they can be proud of.

  • I think a name is one of the first gifts you can give your child. It should have a special quality or meaning to you. My son's name is a gift from both his mothers. His birth mother chose a name from the Bible and then we as his parents who will raise him chose a name for him. A name is an important part of who you are. People tend to grow into their names. What a big job just to name your child. No wonder why so many parents put so much thought and love into choosing a name.

  • names matter because people automatically associate certain characteristics with certain names....no, its not right, but its the truth. you want to make sure your childs name reflects the type of person you want them to be.
