Tips for choosing a name

Here are some questions I asked myself when picking baby girl first and middle names. You can rank them in order of priority for your family because not all of them will be as important as others.

  • Do you want to use a family name or initial?
  • Does it have a nice meaning to it?
  • Does it have meaning to us or our family?
  • Are there nicknames for this name that we want to use or avoid?
  • Is it too popular?
  • Is it too unique?
  • Does the name sound well with your last name?
  • Are there any negative associations you have with it?
  • What will her initials be?
  • What will that name sound like when they’re an adult or professional?

The biggest advice is to ignore what others think or have to say about names you are considering or choose. It’s such a personal decision for you and your family so don’t let any other outside influencers change your mind.

Once you have it narrowed down to 2-4 names, I suggest picking one name per week during your pregnancy, and referring to your baby as that name. Every time you talk about “the baby,” call her by that name. When you refer to her nursery or her movements in your belly, call her by that name.

At the end of that week, change it to another name. Do this for several weeks with your top choices to see which name sticks and feels the most genuine to you. Once you start actually referring to your baby as this name, you will feel even more of a connection to her.

How we chose our daughter’s name

My first born baby was a girl and I was ecstatic about it. I love all things girly and feminine and couldn’t wait to dress her up in bows and pink everything!

I had so many girl first and middle names that I loved so it was a bit hard to decide on just one. However, once we came across the name Brielle, we instantly knew that would be it.

There is a beach town at the Jersey shore, very close to where we live, called Brielle. My husband and I had only been living in the area for about a year and a half so we weren’t too familiar with it.

One day while pregnant, I was driving down the highway and saw the sign for ‘Brielle Next Left’ and thought that sounded like such a pretty girl name.

At that point, we didn’t know what the gender of our baby was yet, so I thought to myself, if it’s a girl, that should be her name. I ran it by my husband and while we hadn’t been agreeing on any names together, he actually really liked this one.

A few days later I had gone to the doctor for a check up and the nurse came in and on her coat said her first name, Brielle. I told her that was a crazy coincidence and that I was thinking of naming my baby Brielle too.

At this point, I still didn’t know what the gender of my baby was, but I took it as a sign from God that I was having a girl and that was meant to be her name!

I hope you liked some of these beautiful and feminine baby girl first and middle names. Just know that the name you pick will be just right for her. It may feel weird at first to call your baby by their name, but soon it will feel so natural and fit in your family perfectly.

PS. Start your registry!

Before you even get started with names, make sure you start a baby registry. You’ll find and hear about many newborn essentials while you’re pregnant and you want to be able to quickly add or save them to your wish list/registry so you don’t forget!

The Amazon Baby Registry is clearly the best option. You get some free items in a welcome box, free shipping, 10-15% off all the remaining items in your registry, and it’s Amazon- so you’re literally going to buy everything from there anyway!

Plus, it’s free, so there’s really no point NOT to do it.  Start it up here now!
