Nicole Ritchie Names Son Sparrow - What to Consider when Naming Your New Baby

Nicole Ritchie and Joel Madden are among a growing trend of passing unique names on to their offspring. What they haven't considered though is although it may be cute for a baby, how serious will they be considered as adults?

Whether we like it or not we all have a preconceived opinion of who based on their name. Whether someone is named, Brittney, Gertrude, Ashley, Margaret, or Apple, people form an opinion based on people they know or heard of with that name.

As an adult the Apples, Sparrows, Skis and Rains will have to put there name on a resume and carry on a career with these names.

What is your first impression when you hear the names Micheal, Hunter, Conner,?
What is your first impression when you hear the names Echo, Breese, Leaf, Iceland?

Can anyone spell your child's name or pronounce it properly when reading it? How frustrated will your child be when they have to constantly correct their teachers, employers, or employees? With the world relying on computers and the Internet to communicate with each other will others pronounce what they read correctly without the benefit of correction?

Will children make fun of their name? What if they shorten it, will you like the nickname? No matter how much we correct our son he still shortens his sister's name The other thing that we are discovering now is that people expected her to be a boy not a girl. Not so bad when your a girl but a boy with a girls name or a name that switches to a female name may be uncomfortable with it, ie Marion, Leslie, Lawrie, all are boys names usurped by the feminine.

Life is difficult enough without parents saddling you with a name you can't either live up to or live down. However, sometimes a name just fits and you can't get it out of your head and no other name seems as right.
