Tips For Creating An Imaginary Friend Name

There are unlimited possibilities when creating a name for an imaginary friend, so let you and your child’s imagination run wild!

Much like choosing a nickname for your son, daughter or even naming a teddy bear or doll, it’s good to think about things like personality, traits linked to appearance and even how easy the name is to pronounce.

Some other helpful tips on choosing an imaginary friend name include:

  1. Simple Is Best: Remember this is your child’s imaginary name, not yours, so the name should definitely be one they like and find easy to remember and pronounce!
  2. Don’t Force It: There may be some names that you prefer, but if your child doesn’t seem overly keen on a name, it’s best not to force the issue.
  3. Imagine The Friend: Ask your little one to describe their imaginary friend, and then use these answers to help choose the name. This is not only effective, but also a lot of fun too!
  4. Test Run The Name: Once you’ve come up with a potential name or two, start using the name and see if it sticks. If your child starts using this name without being prompted and appears to like it, you know you’re on to a winner!
