Baby Names

Popular baby names

Nine months! Nine months is all the time you have to prepare for the baby on the way. Whether the news has come as a surprise or you have been planning for bub for a long time, nine months is all you have to get things in order. We know just how fast nine months can pass you by, albeit when you are heavily pregnant it seems to feel like a lifetime! One of the significant tasks you are likely to cross off the list first and foremost is your babies name – dependent on gender of course. Some of us spend our entire childhood dreaming up the perfect name for our future babies, a lot of the time putting ‘dibs’ on popular names we like the most! With time, our preferences may change and names we chose as young girls, we may look back on and cringe. Often, a name we were certain we wanted may just not be the right ‘fit’ once we see bub for the very first time. Whatever the case may be, we have taken the time to put together a few lists of popular starting points to help you on your way to finding the perfect name for your baby.
