Tips For Choosing A Posh Boy’s Name

  1. Keep in mind that some names are undoubtedly harder to pronounce than others. So think about whether a young child will be able to easily pronounce any of the names you are considering, or if there’s a good nickname or shorter version that your child may be known by. For example, although Sebastian may be hard to say, an abbreviated version such as “Seb” is much easier for a young child to pronounce.
  2. Tied to the point above, consider what impact a nickname may have if any. You might love the name David, but arguably “Dave” sounds much less posh.
  3. If it’s important to you or your family, you may wish to consider honoring a name that is already in the family, such as a dad, brother, uncle or grandfather.
  4. When you’ve found a name you like, say the potential first, middle, and surname together aloud several times to get a feel for how they all sound together.
  5. Remember to always have a quick check to make sure the initials of the names don’t spell anything rude – if they do you’ll be very glad you checked!
  6. If you feel like you are not making progress and can’t make a decision, it’s usually best to take a break for a few days and then revisit once your mind is hopefully fresher.
  7. Finally, remember there’s nothing to say that you have to choose your son’s name before they are born. So if you have several names on the shortlist, why not wait until you meet your baby, because actually seeing them in the flesh might help you decide on the name that suits them best.
