Newborn Baby Name Ideas


Zoe-meaning “LIFE” in Greek

Boy or Girl?

So you are excitedly awaiting the arrival of your newborn, you may be just a few weeks pregnant or got nearly to your due date and are still trying to choose a name for your newborn baby. And even more thinking to do, if like me at the time, you don’t know if you have a boy or a girl coming to join your family.

Family Connection

It was such an important decision for me to choose names for my girls that meant something to me and had a connection to our family.

I loved the name Mia from when I first heard it. Isabella is her second name after her my Nanny who I adored but she was known as Stella! We chose Luca for a boys name but Mother’s intuition told me she was a girl!

Mia Named Her Sister………

When I was expecting Rosie we had chosen either Emily or Tabitha for a girl and Oscar for a boy. We were all sat around the dinner table and we talked to a 7 year old Mia at the time and said so what do you think of Emily or Tabitha if you have a baby sister and she said ‘ummm, what about Rosie?’ And that was it! Name chosen and luckily she was a girl! I love talking to them about this.

My Sister likes to tease me that I was named after a dog down our road at the time and although this is probably NOT TRUE EMMA hahahaha it creates a story and she likes to tease me about it!

So choosing a name for your newborn baby is very important and choosing a name that is a little different, traditional, honouring a family member, short, easy to spell, works with 2 languages in the family or carrying on a family name for your newborn baby can be a big responsibility.

But go with your heart.

Choose one you love and also won’t mind calling across the playground when they are 5 and its time to go home.
