One of the biggest decisions while anticipating a little one is picking out their name. There's so much to consider! You don't want a name that's the same as an ex, or an elementary scholl bully. And you have to make sure none of your friends have already claimed the name for their little one. That already cuts down the name pool significantly.

So much pressure!


Some people want something different, others want something common. They want the kind of name you can find on keychains at gas stations or those tiny license plates for bikes. Likely from being traumatized after not being able to find their name on things.
