When you know you are expecting a baby, the search for the name of the girl or boy, you are waiting for begins, among many other things.
Once the sex is known, we return to that search because, sometimes, the chosen name does not seem original to us, suddenly it no longer hits us with the baby, or we continue to doubt whether a name or another for the girl inspired by family tradition.
It fits our style or if, on the contrary, we prefer a more alternative or different girl’s name.
Check out our article on the most popular women to read about some of the revolutionary women.
For a long time, choosing a girl’s name was a task shared by parents, godparents, and often the pastor.
Usually, the name was selected from two premises: the ancestors of the family and the saints, which is why many times the newborn was given the name of one of the saints of the day he was born because it was trusted that this figure would act as the baby’s guardian angel.
Today this has changed and, currently, other questions arise such as originality, the meaning of the name or its sound, due to this we have seen the arrival of Anglo-Saxon, flower or animal names and, also, short versions of traditional names like Leo de Leonor or Lola who comes from Dolores.
To choose the name for the baby, it is essential, of course, that you like it, but you also have to take into account other issues such as discord.
How does the baby’s name sound when you pronounce it?
Can it be pronounced well in the language of the country where you live?
Is it harmonious? Is the last name doing well?
Also, pay attention to the rhymes it can inspire, as well as nicknames, to avoid silly or heavy jokes in the future.
Another factor to take into account when choosing the name for the girl is if we prefer a unique name, which will make the person who wears it stand out among the others, or if instead, we prefer a name with family inheritance or that comes from Antiquity.
Ancient names collect a rich cultural, spiritual, symbolic and historical tradition, which is something very positive, on the other hand, the right part of a unique or original name is the peculiarity of not finding many people who call themselves the same way.
