So I'm starting to think about baby names and I want to make sure I don't make any naming snafus. I favor less common names but I'm being really careful as a lot of things can go wrong when you go the nontraditional route. I've listed a few naming rules that I've come across. Do you have any to add? If so, please share!
1. Things that sound pretty or have nice meanings in other languages do not always translate well or pronounceably into everyday English. (i.e. Belkis, Evpraksiya, Bushra)
2. Make sure the initials don't spell out something embarrassing (i.e. Ashley Samantha Smith = ASS)
3. Especially with longer names, think about the nicknames that your name of choice could be morphed into and make sure you can live with them.
