Finding the Perfect Baby Girl's Name

There are many places to begin your search for the perfect girls' name. When choosing a name, it's important to ask yourself a few questions as you create your preliminary list of favorites. Some of these can include:
  • Are there any family members you would like to name your daughter after?
  • Are there any baby girls' names that you already like?
  • Is there a letter of the alphabet you would like the name to start with?
  • Is there a certain meaning you'd like to incorporate into the name?
Perhaps you'd like your daughter to have a "cute" name while she's young, but a more formal name when she grows up. In this case, long names that can be shortened -- such as Elizabeth (Beth, Lizzie, or Liz for short) -- might be a good option.
