It is important to take your time when deciding your baby's name as they will have to live with your choice for many years to come. It is important to think whether your chosen name will suit them at all ages as some sound ideal for babies but not quite so appealing for professional adults or rugby players!

It is best to think about the pronunciation and spelling too and whether you will be happy to correct both numerous times! Another point for consideration is if you are planning to give your baby several names whether the initials will spell a word or sound that is unflattering...
