Picking A Baby Name Is Stressful

I'm not a parent myself but I can only imagine how stressful it could be to try and pick out a name for your little baby boy or girl.

The first thing you have to decide is which family member to name the baby boy or girl after. Do you want to give them grandma or grandpa's old-sounding name of Harriet or Earl?

Will Bullies Make Fun Of The Kid's Name?

I remember a kid at my school getting teased relentlessly for his name which was B.J. I think you can figure out why.

I also had a really tall and lanky friend named Eddie that hated when kids would call him "Eddie Spaghetti".

If I ever had a kid I couldn't give them a first name beginning with P or they would have the initials P.P. So that means Peter or Penelope is out of the running. I'm sure bullies would have a field day with those names.
