You are pregnant and the little fetus in your stomach develops and grows into a complete person. But how is this person actually called? Are you going to name him? Or not at all? Do you want a hip baby name? Or just a name from the old box. And how many names do you want to give him? Is one sufficient, or do you want two or three? How do you struggle through those thousands of baby names, looking for that special one that fits exactly that child in your stomach?
It does not matter what name and how many names it will eventually become, you determine. But of course we can give you some tips. You may have something to do with it!
Tips baby names
If you have found a nice name, let the name settle down. Say the name a few times hard. Say the name very softly, or very hard. Does it sound good? Does it feel good if you think about your child's name? Do you still like it after a few days or weeks?
Keep an eye on the last name if the combination sounds nice.
Try to take into account the initials of the other family members. It is annoying if mail items are not immediately identifiable for whom it is intended.
For several first names, note the combination of initials or no foreign word. Willem Carel or Bea Henriëtte might be nice, but the abbreviation is a bit less. Of course you can also have very nice abbreviations, which together form the call sign.
Consider abbreviations and annoying rhymes.
Do not always choose the most popular names. A few Sanne's in the classroom can be confusing.
The name must be an 'appropriate' name, otherwise you run the risk that the registrar of the Registry, when indicating your child, refuses the name to protect your child.
Not that complicated
Do not take a very complicated name. It is annoying for your child later when he always has to spell his name.
Keep in mind that your child will not always remain small, but will grow to become an adult. What may sound very cute now, must still sound good in a few years.
Also try to make a nice combination of the first names of the expectant mum and dad?
Maybe it's nice to name your child after someone you love.
Also pay attention to the meaning of the name.
The influence of vowels ...
According to a study in America, the vowels in the name of your child can influence his or her sex life. For a boy names with vowels in the mouth, (Ben, Nick) were rated higher than a name with vowels from behind the mouth (Paul). For girl, the reverse was true.
Nowadays you can choose which surname your child will wear. He may bear the name of his mother or of his father. If you are married and you do not make a choice, your child automatically gets the name of his father. You can arrange the surname as follows:
If you want your child to receive the surname of his mother, this must be recorded in a deed of name choice. This deed must be made in the presence of the mother and before your child is born. You can have this deed drawn up at the Civil Registry. Incidentally, you can only do this with your first child. Any subsequent brothers and / or sisters automatically receive the surname of your first child. No change is possible after the birth declaration.
If you are unmarried, your child automatically receives the surname of his mother. The father can recognize his child (confirm that he is officially the father). But then your baby does not automatically have the surname of his father. Well before the date of birth of your baby, a certificate of name choice must be drawn up at the Civil Registry. Both parents must be present during the layout. When no deed of name selection is made, the recognized child receives the surname of his mother. No change is possible after the birth declaration.
