Above all, whatever you choose to name your child, just make sure you absolutely love it. Trends come and go but their name will always remain the same!

A few more things to consider when picking a baby boy name are:

Nicknames – Some nicknames can be cute, but others not so much. Try to stay away from names where you aren’t a fan of the nicknames! You can’t control nickname spin-offs even if you try!

Popularity – This definitely matters! While it doesn’t bother a lot of people, having a name that’s too common sometimes isn’t a good thing. You won’t notice it much, until they start school and have 6 Liam’s in their class. If you go traditional there may be some repeat names, but it will be a name that never goes out of style!

Unisex – Unisex names are pretty popular and can be super cute, but if it might bother you that people can think your baby is the opposite gender, we recommend steering away from those names!

Spelling – While it can be fun and different to give your baby a uniquely spelled name, just remember that is a lifetime of trying to make sure everyone spells your name correctly! Especially when the most common version is spelled different.
