Who knew it was so hard to name a baby, it seems like such an easy idea. Parents think of all the names they like, they make a list and just figure it out when the time comes. Unfortunately, it is much more than that. First, it takes two people to come to an agreeance on names. Then they have to take into account any nicknames that could come of it, what the meaning is and if there is any chance their baby will face consequences for a decision they made.
