Things to consider before choosing a name for your baby boy:

If you're looking for inspiration when it comes to choosing a boys baby boy name, it's worth taking a look at your family tree. Often there is a name of a long lost Uncle or Grandparent that could inspire a boys baby name - or perhaps a middle name.

Once you have a shortlist of names, try saying and writing them down with your last name and try to come up with a list of potential nicknames the name you choose could incur.

Think about the initials of the potential full name you're about to choose for your baby, are they okay, or will they be made fun of?

The other thing to consider is what your child might want to be when they grow up. Will the name you're choosing serve if them if they want to be a doctor, or a soccer player, or a business executive?
