Baby-Naming Inspiration May 22, 2007

Filed under: Pregnancy — Rachel @ 2:15 pm

Choosing your baby’s name is a big deal, am I right?  You’ve flipped through countless books and browsed the web fanatically.  You’re looking for a name that’s unique, but not weird; one that will be well-liked, but not too popular.  If you’re still searching for the right name, I came across an idea that might provide some inspiration: try removing a consonant from some of your favorite choices.  Now before you shake your head, give it a try: “Madison” becomes “Addison”, “Jayden” becomes “Aiden”, “Kayla” becomes “Ayla”, “Olivia” becomes “Ivia”.  You see where this is going.  You can also remove consonants from the middle of names: “Kaitlyn” becomes “Kaylin”, “Jeremy” becomes “Jemy”.  If you’d like a contemporary, artistic name, this may be your ticket!  As it happens, I chose my daughter’s name, Aria, by shortening several of our favorites: Ariella, Arianna, and Ariel.  Good luck!
