How to Choose a Biblical Baby Boy Name
Choosing a baby name can be really difficult, especially when you have friends and family throwing in their opinions. I wanted to share a few tips on how we chose our children’s names. Hopeful this will give you a little guidance on deciding on a name you will love.
Truthfully, naming our first baby was easy…. we had a boy and a girl name we already loved! But once we found out we were pregnant with another girl, we really struggled to choose a name.
We spent months creating a “Master List” of our favorite baby girl names. This decision wasn’t as simple as we like the meaning…. there was a lot of thought… and tough conversations that went into choosing her name
So here is what we did to choose the perfect name for our daughter:
1. Write Down YOUR Favorite Names
Both you and your spouse should keep lists of your favorite names. Every so often go through the list. Keep the maybes and yeses… get rid of the NOs.
Josie was actually on the maybe list and (eventually) we both ended up loving it!
2. Take Meaning into Consideration
With most Biblical baby boy names, the meaning is really strong and God-honoring. Although there may be certain meanings that just don’t align with your life… and that’s totally okay!
3. Say the Names Out Loud
Sometimes just hearing a name will give you clarity. This is actually what helped us to choose Josie. We loved the way it sounded, especially with our older daughter’s name! This leads me to my next tip….
4. Think About Sibling Names
Even if this is your first, you may want to consider how this name will sound with sibling names. Truthfully, your kids’ names don’t need to flow… but let’s say you are introducing them… are their names easy to say?
5. Pray About It
God already knows your daughter’s name, isn’t that crazy to think about?! Begin praying and asking God to reveal the name that your daughter should be named.
When choosing a unique Biblical baby boy’s name take your time and take everything into consideration.. I hope this list gave you a little inspiration and helps you to pick a name that suits your little boy.
I truly am SO Excited for you and your spouse….. the journey of parenthood is absolutely precious and I know you are going to enjoy it ❤️
