Things to avoid when choosing a name for your baby boy

To make choosing your baby boy’s name even easier, here is a list of things to avoid when deciding on a name:

  • First and last names that rhyme, for example Casey Tracy.
  • First names that end in a vowel followed by a last name that begins with a vowel, for example Elena Avery. These names tend to run together when said aloud.
  • Pun names, such as Bud Light or Justin Case, should always be avoided.
  • Names that produce embarrassing initials, such as Peter Ian Gibson or Timothy Isaac Thomas.
  • Names that are too famous, such as Michael Jackson or George Washington.
  • Using nicknames or childish names as first names. If you want to call your son Mikey, name him Michael. He won’t be a baby forever and he might not appreciate the cutesy name Mikey when he is an adult.
  • Names that mean something derogatory in another language. For example, “Cerdo” means “pig” in Spanish.

Happy searching!
