Parents and non-parents…what things influenced/would influence the names you pick(ed) for your children? Obviously don’t reveal names if it doesn’t make you feel comfortable.
- Names that are commonly used within your family?
- Name of someone you admire?
- Names that you like the sound of (e.g. if I had a girl, I like quite a few Irish names, despite not being Irish)?
- Avoiding names that you think are “in fashion”?
- Names that could make gender non-conformity easier (e.g. “Sam”)?
