Choosing a Name: Take a look at the Top Baby Names of 2019
Take a look at the top baby names of 2019 in Ireland. Plus some helpful tips to consider when picking a baby name.
Choosing a name for your newborn baby can prove to be a difficult task! A lot of people have a short list of potential baby names before the baby is born.
There are so many names to choose from and so many things to consider as names can evoke memories of childhood battles and over-bearing aunts. So choose wisely! Here’s a few things to keep in mind:
- The spelling: will they have to spell it out? Consider that most Irish names cause international
confusion – Aoife becomes AOHFA!
- What do the first and surname sound like together?
- What are the initials when all names are combined? Think of poor I.P. Daly!
- Any potential nicknames that might arise or any words that rhyme.
