What’s in A Name?

What’s in a name? Actually a lot! When it comes time to pick a name for your little one, it can get stressful. Do you go with a family name? If so – which side of the family? Do you want something unique, but not too unique? Have you seen the studies out there on the impact of names on a child’s likelihood of success? Here you are focusing on eating right and being healthy for this little one but you could mess everything up with the wrong name?!?!? It’s terrifying! Luckily – most of the studies show that names and future success have a correlation not causation. So breath a sigh of relief and get back to enjoying the name choosing process!

While the internet is full of free resources – our favorite being Belly Ballot (go check it out!) – some moms-to-be find flipping through name books together to be a fun way to make your significant other feel more involved as you do all the heavy lifting (you know, the whole growing a baby part). Here are some popular book options.
