To choose name for a new baby, as most expectant parents see it, is no simple task. While a lot of parents have already gethered a list of favourite names, for those who are looking to combine the mother's and father's name are confronted with very few options. An interesting aspect of naming a baby by comibining the names of his parents is the significance such a practice has i.e. to imply that the baby has a mixture of both the mother's as well as father's traits.
Combining the parent’s name to create new name is a good way to get a unique yet meaningful name for baby. To do so, you can either use first name of both the parents or simply break up the names and combine them to get a new name.
First, make up your mind on what kind of a name you want to give your baby. Would you like your baby to have a completely new name? For instance, would you like the name to have a traditional touch or would you rather like it to be just a mix of your names? Does the name necessarily need to be easily pronounced or spelled? The name must be gender specific (i.e. a girly name for girl child such as Cinderella) or sound unisex (such as Amber). Jot down these guidelines so that you don’t miss out on anything when you are creating a name for your baby.
Secondly, write down syllables in the parents' name on a sheet of paper and try out their different combinations. You can even use scramble letter game to try various combinations of words.
Try using different combinations of syllables. Few tips are listed below:
Keep out of names that give our a negative image or are linked with thinkgs that may be offensive in nature. Remember that your motive is to find a name by which your child will be presented to others, not that you have to just make up a combination from your names.
