One thing is to find a name you will agree on with your partner, let alone a name that will be approved by family and friends. Many parents therefor avoid asking for advice, and rather chooses to do their baby names research online. In fact one of the most popular posts on the blog is Scandinavian Baby Names.
By naming your child you will also give your child an identity. Many will look into family names as well as names from where the family originates from. And then again some chooses a name simply because they think it’s a beautiful name. To some the meaning of the name is important.
