Is it more important to name your baby after somebody or for them to have their own name?
Named after somebody.
Their own name.
Happy medium: somebody else's name, with a twist.
Is it going to bother you if you discover there are five other kids at school with your child's name?
I'd be very surprised.
I already know it's popular right now.
Would you still use a name you love even if you're not sure people will be able to pronounce it correctly?
Is it important to you that other people like your baby's name?
Definitely. That's part of why I chose it.
It doesn't matter at all.
How could anybody not like such an awesome name?
I'm not overly worried about it.
Your husband's name is Jeffrey and he desperately wants to name your son after himself. Which name do you push for?
Nevaeh, Neveah, or No-Way-a!
Nevaeh is "Heaven" spelled backwards. Love it!
Neveah. It's a great name, and even better with a different spelling.
Another consideration in naming is your child's initials. Is it OK if their initials spell a word?
As long as it's not something like FAT, STD, or PMS, it's OK, but not ideal.
We purposely chose names to make cool initials.
We decided against a middle name.
We didn't even think about that sort of thing!
Do you like your own name?
No. It's too common.
Yes. It's classic and not embarrassing.
No. I hate it.
Meh, it's fine.
If you could bring your kids up in anywhere you wanted, what type of area would it be?
In a mostly urban area just outside of a city.
In the city.
Was it important to you that your child's name has religious significance?
Yes. It's a must.
If I used a religious name, I'd switch up the spelling or pronunciation.
