Advice On Choosing A 2 Letter Name

We hope you found this list inspiring and helpful in your naming journey!

Here are a few other tips to help you on your way:

  1. Many parents find the naming process naturally takes some time, so do not feel discouraged if you are finding it challenging to make a decision.
  2. An excellent way to begin is to create a list of all the names you like.
  3. Once you have created a list of names you like, begin crossing off names if there are others on the list that you prefer even more (i.e. narrow down to your top two or three favorites).
  4. Next, say the two letter name and your child’s surname aloud to get a sense of how they sound together.
  5. Remember to check that the initials don’t spell anything rude!
  6. If you feel like you are stuck, try taking a break for a few days or even a week or two, and then come back to the process again once your mind is hopefully more fresh.
  7. Lastly, don’t forget that don’t necessarily have to decide on your baby’s name before they are born. If you have more than two potential names on your shortlist, you may wish to therefore wait until after your child is born, because by seeing him or her in person you may be swayed towards one name over any of the others that are still remaining on your list.
