    How to select/suggest/determine a Baby name

    1 If you feel to several first names, try them out with the surname to see if they flow and sound right. Especially when spoken aloud

     2 It often sounds better if the first name and the And surname contain a different number of syllables. a plain surname can be given a lift by a stylish first name. Thus two short names together Jane Smith may sound curt or insignificant, whereas Kayla Smith or Zaranda Smith suggests livelier personalities with more energy and style. Bear in mind that a longer surname can often sound better with a short first name, for example John Camberley.

    3 Check for any meanings that may lurk in the combination of first name and surname. Ann and Eileen are both fine names but one would obviousl want to avoid Ann Teak or Eileen Dover.

     4 Avoid names that run together when you speak them like Beryl Lane. Such names may be confusing to anyone encountering them for the first time.
