A name has a lot to offer. So when choosing one for your baby, keep in mind the impact it can have on his life.
Such as possible offensive nicknames they may receive because of their nickname.
In an article for The Tot, naming expert Sabrina Rogers-Anderson said many parents have confided in her that they regret their baby name.
Some of them get caught up in trends and end up with names that they soon realize were a mistake.
Others cling to family traditions and equally end up with a name they don’t like.
Another naming mistake occurs when parents just can’t agree on a name for their child.
To avoid the regret of choosing an unwanted name for your baby, Rogers-Anderson has pointed out one important thing to watch out for.
It’s all about the potential nicknames your child can call their peers depending on how you call them.
Rogers-Anderson shared the worst nicknames she’s ever heard for a child.
“One mother I spoke to told me she named her daughter Regina — pronounced ‘Re-JEE-na’ — because she loved the regal sound of it,” she wrote.
“Unfortunately, Regina’s classmates were quick to call her ‘Regina Vagina’ and ‘Ra-jay-jay Va-jay-jay.'”
To counteract this, the naming expert said you should ask a family member or friend about possible nicknames your child might get.
This will ensure that there is no way you will miss out on a bad nickname.
