Baby names are more than decorating a nursery. It’s the name your child will be known by from family and friends, in day care and on the school bus—it’s the name that will shape your child’s personality. Whether you want your kid to have a free-spirited moniker like Izzy or a regal sounding title like Alexander, it will eventually be the name appearing at the top of your son or daughter’s future résumé.
Are you concerned about giving your child a name that might not sound professional, or do you think a unique baby name will help your kid’s résumé stand out from the crowd? Maybe in 20 years, your child’s name won’t even be considered abnormal!
