Use Your Personality to Determine Your Baby's Name

Advertisement

It's one of the most important things a parent will ever do: Selecting a name for your baby. Pick the wrong one, and your child may be mercilessly teased on the playground for their entire time in school. But get the right one, and your offspring might someday join the ranks of celebrities like Cher, Madonna, or Bono who are immediately recognized with just their first name. It's easy to see how your personality can help shape your baby's identity. So can your personality also help determine what you should name your infant? There's a million Matthew, Mark, Luke, and Johns in the world. Why not pick a less popular name? Your personality is unique, so why shouldn't your baby's name be unique as well? Sure, they might not be able to find a key chain with their name on it in the gift shop of the local science museum, but it will be worth it when their name stands out among the regular Joes of their peer group.

Did you know?

What are baby naming traditions around the world?

It's one thing everyone has in common with everyone else on the planet.  We all have a name.  But where a baby is born can play a big part in the selection of their name.  For instance, in China, some parents will pay a fortune-teller to determine the best name for their newborn.   In Iceland, a child's name has to be on a pre-approved official register of baby names.  If the name a parent wants isn't on the list, they can pay to try and get it approved.  In West Africa, sometimes babies are given a special name based on what day they were born.  In Greece, some parents observe a tradition where they wait a week to ten days to name their baby.  And in Germany, some baby names are banned, including ones that are insensitive to religions and cannot be a location, object, or brand name.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
