A boy called Shirley? A Pensioner called Zowie?
Choosing a suitable baby boy name or baby girl name from the vast selection that are available is a serious task. One of the cute, exotic or cool baby boy names or baby girl names may be great for a tiny baby. But would it have the same effect when the baby boy or girl grows into a schoolchild, a teenager, a young adult, a middle aged person and eventually a pensioner? Will the boy or girl, who has now become older, then be happy with your choice of name ? School kids can be merciless to each other and make a bee-line for anything out of the ordinary, unfortunately this includes boy or girl names which are unsuitable for older children. Remember - 'A Name isn't just for a Birth Day - it's for life'! The images at the top of the page reflect the different life stages that a boy or girl can travel through - from a pram to a bike to a car and beyond!
No cuddly toys!
Thought provoking? We hope so and make no apologies from veering away from the usual pink, blue and lemon colours associated with baby boy names or baby girl names or the endless cuddly toy type images also associated with this particular subject. These images might appeal to a baby but the information provided on this site is strictly for adults who are making an important and balanced decision and looking for a good baby name choice for the new baby boy or baby girl.
