A person’s name says a lot about them. Even though they didn’t pick it for themselves, it seems like there are certain defining characteristics that come with certain names. When parents choose a name for their child, they’re almost deciding on that child’s destiny. When they choose an uncommon (read as: made up) name for their child, they’re basically putting a target on the kid’s back and positioning them to be the odd man out for their entire life. If you’re considering an uncommon name for your baby, take a look at these 4 reasons why you may want to go with a more traditional name instead.
1.) Pronunciation. Unless you want your child to have to correct everyone they ever meet in their entire lives on the correct pronunciation of their name, you may want to settle on a more common moniker. If you’re thinking about choosing a common name, but giving it a creative spelling, don’t. Just don’t. It will be a nightmare for your child when they get older.
