More baby name ideas
For more international inspiration for baby names, try these three ideas.

  1. Movie monikers: Consider renting foreign flicks or picking up a few novels by foreign authors for name suggestions.

  2. Heritage help: Whether you have Irish or Indian background, narrowing down the baby search to baby names from that country can help direct your search.

  3. City baby:For an original spin on baby names, pull out a map and look at names of international cities and towns. Whether or not you’ve been there before, a spot on the map could make for an unusual and special name for your new baby.

If you still don’t feel any closer to finding the perfect name for your new baby girl, don’t worry: Many new moms don’t finalize on their new baby’s name until after the birth, as sometimes it takes meeting your child to realize what you should name her! For now, make note of the names that appeal to you most, and keep your eyes (and ears!) open for ideas. You may be surprised where you find baby name inspiration!
