One thing that all babies need is a name. After all, you can't keep callng the little one "thingy" for the first few years of his or her life until he or she is old enough to decide on a name for themself. Your child's name is a gift that you will give them that they will keep for the rest of their life. It's something they'll go through their school life with, through work (maybe even wearing their name on a tag), will sign documents with, and will be known by to friends and family. Their name is something they'll introduce themselves as to others, and eventually, one day they'll hopefully tell their future partner their name for the very first time.
So how do you choose? Well,this is where BabySafetyGate.com's nifty baby Name Meaning Search and Suggestion Generator comes in to lend you a helping hand. I've developed this useful tool to hopefully be the best way possible of selecting a name. It's easy to use and gives you innumerable combinations of ways to choose.
If you have a name in mind already, you can use the suggestion generator in its simplest way to give you the meaning and originating country or language of the name you're considering by entering the full name in any of the first three boxes.
As the boxes indicate, there is more to the Suggestion Generator than that though. You can use any combination of the boxes to discover the perfect name for your baby.
The "Meaning" field will give you a boolean search. For example, if you type in the following words:
The search will give you all names whose meaning contatins "bible" OR "valiant".
However, if you type in the following
You will get all names whose meanings contain "bible" AND "valiant"....Quite a presidential result contained therein!
Use as many or as few of the selection boxes as you like. For example if you likenames that end in sha for a girl, just put sha in the "name ends with" box and select female from the "Gender" box and you'll get a nice selection of girl's names ending with sha.
Similarly, if you want a boy's name that starts with God, type God into the "Initial or first few letters" box and choose male from the "Gender" box, and you'll get all boy's names starting with God
Do you maybe want a nice name that contains aya, but you're not sure if you're going to have a baby boy or a girl? Simply pop aya in the "Name Contains" box and voila, some great-sounding names and their meanings will be displayed for you.
Feel free to play around with combinations of selection criteria as much as you like, and please tell your friends too about the Suggestion Generator, or link from your website, blog or online profile page.
