Does a Name Help My Infant Sleep

Aug 28, 2008
As we all know what we name our babies can affect him, her, or God help you both them for the rest of their lives. Do you remember the song by Johnny Cash named A Boy Named Sue? Do you remember how this guy was tormented all his life because he was given a girl's name to toughen him up.

Would Sue have made the same choice if he had the opportunity? Possibly but probably not. I have many times thought that a child should be able to choose his or her own name anyway. Would sleeping baby John Ritchie rename himself Sid Vicious or would napping baby Sally become Princess Banana Hammock? Or otherwise!

My son was named very unceremoniously. My wife was carted out of the recovery room all lathered up. As she held our sleeping baby boy we were harassed by an administrative type asking me what we wanted to name our baby. I had forgotten what we wanted to name him and thought, erroneously that he would have to go through his life unnamed.

Parents can go nuts naming their child something so unusual that it escapes reality, while some parents are very concerned about the googability of their future baby. With Monster and other websites naming conventions could become very important. Think about the name. Make sure that it is a name that commands respect.

A name should have dignity at the very least. Traditional names are safe. Something funky will always -- or better said -- eventually get you in trouble. Like Dweezil or Moon Unit, these are real people's names I might add, and are siblings wouldn't you know.

A name should also be simple or simply put simple for people to say and spell. It is efficient if not practical to use a J for a soft J sound not a G. We often take jabs at the English language because of bizarre spellings - this time you get to choose. Choose Wisely.

If you have a large closely knit family naming your child will surely upset someone. Maybe Great Aunt Pooky was hoping before she died you would find it in your hearts to name your napping baby after her. Be sure to do what you want. Don't cave to the pressures family can bring upon you.

Honestly, just name the baby girl or boy something that you think works. It must work for you and work for the child too! Can you see yourself calling from the downstairs -- Optimus Prime get down here and take the trash out. Ultimately it should be a name that helps you and your baby sleep all through the night.
