Choosing the perfect name for your child can be one of the most difficult decisions parents have to make. It is a very exciting time but being responsible for the naming of another human is intimidating. Many factors are involved when making the big decision that will create your child’s identity.
While most parents are confident in their naming decisions, many second guess their choices.
In a recent survey conducted by Mumsnet.com results found that nearly one fifth of parents in the U.K. would choose a different name for their child if they had the opportunity. The study found that 25% of the parents surveyed regretted their child’s name because it was “too commonly used.” 21% reported the name “just didn’t feel right.”
