Choosing a name for your baby can be quite the process. We meditate on it, test it out on our tongues and if we are brave enough, we run it by our family and friends. It is like the name that we choose for our newest little one can dictate or predicted what kind of future they may have.
Most importantly, we want the name to mean something special. Not only special to us, but to ring out as meaningful to others.
Popularity of names is ever changing year and after. Influenced by the sign of times or by celebrities, we want a name that will fit perfectly with our child for the rest of their lives.
Here is our list of popular baby names and their meanings. Our hope is to not only to inspire what may be the strong personality of your newest edition but we also hope that we can help end your search here.
