How Do You Know That You Are Picking The Right Name For Your Unborn Child?
Naming your unborn child maybe one of the hardest decisions you ever make. You might ask yourself…
“If I get this wrong can I or will I ruin my child’s life?”
Some kids grow up liking their names, and other have them legally changed.
I always liked my name, but I am one that likes something a little different.
I know you are saying, “Yours, isn’t different; there are a lot of Debbie’s in this world.” You would be right, other than most Debbie’s real names are Debra.
Not mine, it is JUST Debbie. Yes, I have been ask many times; “Is Debbie you legal name?” I tell them “Yes and I am proud of it.”
The only thing is my middle name is Dee, so I have often wondered why my parents didn’t call me DeeDee for short. “I always thought that sounded pretty cute.”
That didn’t happen, so I’ll just go with the plain Debbie and it’s OK even though I had an aunt that called me Dubbie all the time. Maybe she didn’t like me or she had trouble pronouncing my name.
If anyone calls me that now, they most likely are going to pick themselves up off the ground!
A person’s name is very important to them.
Your name gives you your personal identity.
You might remember the old Johnny Cash song, “Boy Named Sue.” (I Think that is what it was called.) Anyway this guy names his son Sue, because he wanted him to learn to be tough! To survive, a boy named Sue would have to be tough.
Can you imagine going to school, as a boy and be call Sue. Not so much!
Now I have a grandson named Chase.
Don’t get me wrong I really like his name; I have to say his mom and dad spend their days chasing this child. I mean nothing scares him! He can hurt himself, and just gets up and keeps going.
One time I was in a store and seen the name tag on this young man; It read “Chase”. I ask him, “How has that worked out for your parent?” His reply was…
“I spent some time in boot camp some years back.”
I have to say though I loved his spirit!!! He came across as a fun person and very likeable.
By the way the meaning for the name Chase is hunter. I understand this, because he is always hunting for something new and exciting!
My oldest daughter has a name you don’t hear. She knows that when someone says, “Hi Shallon; or what do you think you are doing, Shallon?”
They are talking to her.
Is this a blessing or a curse?
vSometimes we pick out the name and after the baby arrives it doesn’t seem like the name fits.
vOther times we look at that little face and know the name is perfect.
Here is a situation where the parents named their baby and then mommy decided the name didn’t fit, so at 8 months old she had the name legally changed. Never heard of that before, but ok as long as mommy and daddy feel better; this is OK!
Does our name shape our Character and personality?
ØIf you have a strong name are you going to have those characteristics and personality traits?
ØIf you have unusual name are you going to be an unusual person?
ØIf you have a common name are you going to common and nothing unordinary?
ØDo parents need to give naming their children more thought?
Here is a site that you can type in the name and it tells you the personality. I found it very interesting and somewhat true when it comes to names and personality. Love PM.Com. (Yes, it does talk about love, but there is a place where you can type in the name and it gives a few personality traits that I found interesting.)
Are you happy with the names you chose for your kids, or do you look at them and wonder…”What was I thinking?”
Do you feel your mother was given too many drugs in the hospital when you were born and didn’t give them a chance to wear off before making the most important decision in your life…Your Name? And your father just agreed with her, because after that deliver he was in enough trouble already.
