  • Make all efforts to choose a name that will grow with your child, at the same time suit his/her character. In short, the label you give should define your baby in future. Imagine you name your child ‘Rusty’ and when he grows the name is going to haunt him for a life time.
  • At times there might be immense pressure to give names after grandparents or initials that implies a close relative’s name etc. Adapt yourself to handling such pressures from family and friends, but never give up your little one’s best feature to obligations.
  • Have a script ready to deal with unwanted suggestions. You could ward off these hurdles by just saying politely that you have already decided on the baby’s name. If both parents could confirm it, no one can beat it.
  • While deciding your child’s name, give equal preference to your partner’s preferences so as to maintain equilibrium. Partners could brainstorm possible options, understand expectations and choose what both find best.
  • Though you have agreed on a name, keep your options open. Newborns, though look nothing like an adult, could drop a hint of their personalities in a few days after birth.
  • Your choice of naming your child is very personal and you don’t want unnecessary influences on it. So keep your little one’s name a secret. Everyone will have some remarks or comments on any name you choose, but if you are sure the name suits your baby, that’s all it needs. Keeping secrecy could limit the remarks that might cause bitterness.

A child’s name will live with him/her for a lifetime. The parent’s appropriate decision and will power will reflect in a child’s name. Careful analysis and thoughtful choices could give a hassle free future to your child. It doesn’t mean you cannot call your baby by other nicknames that you prefer, but not when the child grows out of those diapers. Additionally, try avoiding names that are hard to spell or pronounce, two names that don’t go well together, names of countries, places, nature oriented names like river, leaf, rainbow etc., names with undesirable initials like P.I.G, M.A.D etc. because these could make you regret your decision as your child progresses at each stage.


Whats in a name

What’s In a Name? My Origins, My Culture & Maybe Even My Destiny!
If my reddish brown hair, green eyes and pale skin with slight freckles, don’t give my identity away, my name most certainly would! My name is Alana (ah-lah-na) which means beautiful/peaceful/serene or “fair /beautiful maiden”! It is also derived from the common term of endearment ‘a leanbh’, which means “my baby/darling”. Yes I am Irish and proud to be so!
It’s interesting how I was named Alana! When my mom was pregnant with me she lost her grandmother to whom she was very close. She was very upset and would cry for hours. One day while napping my mom dreamt of my grandmother and was assured of her return. She had called my mom by the name ‘Alana’ (intending to mean, my beautiful dear child).This happened several times later till my birth! As soon as my mom held me for the first time she named me Alana!
I cherish and take pride in Irish baby names! They are pregnant with meaning, spirit, values and rich history. Most of the names are derived from Gaelic and Celtic words, traditions and folklore. Names are derived from popular Legends like those of Niamh & Oisin, Fianna, Nial of the Nine Hostages, Fionn MacCool, The Pursuit of Diarmuid & Gráinne, King Conor & Cuchulainn, Brian Boru etc.
The names have been anglicized and are popular world over! Heard of ‘Aidan’? It is the Anglicization of the Gaelic word Aodhán, meaning “little fire”. Ryan is derived from the Irish surname Ó Ríain, meaning “little king”. Siobhan(shiv-awn) (girl)/Sean (boy) means “God is gracious”. Ciara is the feminine form of Ciaran (dark) implying “dark hair and brown eyes”. My sister’s son’s name is Dylan derived from the word ‘dealan’ meaning a flash of lightning or another interpretation is “faithful or loyal”.
If you are a family of dog lovers consider the name Conor/Connor for it is a modern version of the Irish name Conchobhar, meaning “ a lover of hounds”; Conchobhar MacNessa reigned in Ulster and who according to fable, was born on the day Christ had descended. If you think your boy will have rebellious streaks consider Emmet which is a popular name given as mark of respect to the great Irish speaker and nationalist Robert Emmet who led the 1798 rebellion against the British.
If you want your daughter to have noble traits consider Caitlin or Cathleen, a name based on the Irish folktale where Cathleen convinces Satan to take her soul in exchange of food. If you want your girl to win the battles of life name her Fianna after the legendary Irish band of warriors which embodied strength, bravery, courage.
The frog that turned into a prince when kissed by a princess has a parallel in the Irish legend of Niall where he earned the throne by passing a test of kissing a hideous ugly lady. I am sure your baby girl brightens up your life, consider Sorcha meaning bright/radiant. You could also name your little fairy Oona/Una after the Queen of fairies in the legend of Oonagh!
Choose from mystical, exquisite, time-less Irish names for your loved ones!

Britain and the Royal Family

So what is happening in Britain? The birth of a baby princess of course! More importantly what will she be called. It may be a traditional English Girls name with a number of people hoping for Alice or Charlotte. However, we will need to wait and see. So what is the history of names for Royal babies?

The names’ given to a prince or princess and any royal subject in United Kingdom can be described as a rite that carries a certain significance (which we are soon going to remark upon) and is also deemed to be sacred by the weight of its royal attributes. This cultural ritual of naming has been delegated from generation to generations. I must mention here that the names given to princes and princesses posses also a characteristic of not standing alone.

As a matter of fact, it comes with a prefix and they start being addressed by these prefixes most times, just few days after birth; with the mention of titles like “PRINCE”, “PRINCESS”, “LORD”,”LADY” and such prefixes are added before the mentioning of or writing down their first names. Some known ones in the last decade and a bit or so, just to hit blank are “Prince Michael”, (British Queen’s First Cousin) “(the late) Lady Diana” (Ex-Wife of the prince of England, Prince Charles. She is the mother of Prince Williams and Prince Henry widely known as Prince Harry) and they are expected to be addressed by their title whether they are in their casual domain or in a formal function. In fact, it is even in a formal setting or when they get married, and if it is a first born male, married, (he inherits the ducal title) he automatically attains office and that is when his names become longest and his union by marriage, causes their spouse’ children and children’s-children up till their extended relatives’ to have an addition of title to their names. Following this reason, they are now introduced by or referred to, by their “Official Designation” plus their Prefix, their First Name, their Family Name and their position in their generation… in this format (just to further buttress): “The Duke of Kent, Prince Michael, and Grand Son of King George IV”

In Britain, whence you either through birth or by proxy become a Royal “Entity”, you are automatically stripped off The Freedom of Religion. You have no right to choose a religion; you are rather subjected to carry on with the tradition of the monarchy. The religious orientation in the British Monarch System is Christianity. Emphasising on denomination at this time is ancillary because we want to endeavour to concentrate on names more than any other thing. So, arriving at this conclusion, I can tell you without an iota of doubt that first names of babies from the British Monarchy are selected from two different nomenclatures mainly, which are Christian based or Decent English names. Name like Edward, Alexandra, Arthur, Elizabeth and Philip just to mention a few.

Finally there is about a hand full or so of times when there is marriage union between and English Royalty and a foreigner, by default the foreigner begins to enjoy all the entitlement and heritage and titles of a monarch. The Duchess of Gloucester, Her Royal Majesty, Lady Brigetta Evan from Denmark who married the Duke of Gloucester is a good example that comes to mind when asked to give an example of that sort of union involving one from a British Royal Family marrying a foreigner.
