Carrying your child during the hot summer months can be a bit difficult. Naming your child can prove to be just as hard when your attention is pulled in many different directions. From decorating your new nursery to planning a baby shower and preparing for the hospital stay, finding a name might be last on your list. If you or someone you know is planning a summer vacation during the next few months, consider choosing a name from a place that you plan to travel or have traveled to.
