this can be achieved by choosing exotic baby names. Society is much less formal than it used to be. We use
our First name more often than surnames now and a first name has become increasingly important in terms of a person's identity. So

Selecting a name from the category of
Exotic Names' runs the risk of being faddish and associated with a particular period in
time or a particular country.

Consider the phases and our life cycle starting with baby - toddler - school child - teenager - young adults - parents - middle age - retirement and old age.
Will the Exotic
baby name that you have chosen suit a pensioner as well as a baby? Will the schoolchild be teased
mercilessly? And what will your child think of your choice? Will they thank you for constantly having to repeat and spell their name to people for the rest of their lives?
although the name is Exotic it will be widely used - so other people must be able to say it and spell it
easily. The name should not suggest anything undesirable or silly!

highly unusual or exotic names, considered odd by those around them, can experience great
difficulties in their normal social relationships
