The positive pregnancy test - a moment that you will never forget in your life. The (pre)joy is huge! For the parents-to-be, this also means that there are a lot of preparations to be made. One of the most important tasks is probably the following: finding the right first name for the offspring. The baby will hear his name 35 times a day on average. Many cultures associate the choice of name with a wish they have for the child's future. And indeed: the choice of name has a significant influence on life. Depending on the name, characteristics are attributed to a person, at least unconsciously.
So choosing a name is sometimes not that easy. Many parents-to-be go through long lists of names together, carefully studying the meanings. Others try to create an individual and particularly imaginative name idea. Sometimes there are already favorite names, but the partner doesn't like them. It is well known that tastes differ. Still, there are a few names every year that appeal to new parents. These names make it into the top 10 list of most popular baby names.
