Choosing a name for your new born baby is really a big deal!
If the parents choose a name that either grandparents do not like, that takes out half the joy. It will be so hard for the I-don't-like-his-name grandparents to coo over a baby whose name they don't like to say!
If I were to call him in church, how many other boys will turn and answer me?
Will any silly Tom, Dick or Harry make fun of his name?
Does it numerically fit the requiremnts (some grandparents believe in numerology) ?
What does it mean biblically or otherwise?
Does the total number of alphabets equal 30 and below? (My mum cautioned me over and over that SPM and STPM boxes for names are limited to 30!)
Can you live with the short form some might "brand" your child with?
(Frankly, I wish no one will call my lil one Chris! hint...hint)
Any probability that his name may be mis-pronounced? (I don't understand how my "Ann" can be pronounced as "arn"....guess they are 'bahasa-paku-ing' it or it is just some Chinese tongue twister!)
At the top of my head, and through experience, these were my thought in choosing my son's name.
So the question I would like to ask all readers.
Would you mind if another child whose parents you are somewhat close to calls their child by the same name?
Cos I know several names that I really like whose child already bears that name....and if that person reads this and replies and says they don't mind....hehehe.....
